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.
