Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

March 14: Update on Jonatán

Please continue to pray for Jona. He was admitted to the hospital this past Friday for another four-hour chemo. This is the kind that has to be flushed out of his system; that process usually takes at least three days but has been taking longer the last few times. The side effects are unpleasant, to say the least, but the main concern, of course, is the toxicity of the medications.

Jona continues to be encouraged, looking to the Lord. He is counting down the remaining chemos. This current one is #10 – nine more to go! (If we've figured correctly, he'll be done by the first week in July.)

By God's grace, Jona has been able to keep up with school. At this rate, he should be able to finish out the school year on schedule. The faculty and staff and students at BJA have been an amazing encouragement to Jona (and to us!); we are very thankful!

Please continue to pray specifically:
  • Pray that Christ's name would be made big in the earth – in Jona's life, in the lives of extended family, in the medical community here, in the eyes of others on the oncology floor, in our churches, in Jona's school, and in the lives of Christians all over the world who are praying.
  • Pray for wisdom for Esteban and Esther and the doctors as they make major decisions day by day.
  • Pray for wisdom in dealing with insurance providers; pray that all details (i.e. red tape) will be worked out smoothly.
  • Pray that the LORD, the Great Physician, would completely heal Jona.
Thank-you for praying!
