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.

July 23: Update on Jonatán

Thank-you, more than words can say, for your continued prayers for Jona.

We Steels are on the road again, presenting our future ministry in Uruguay; we very much appreciate your interest and continued prayer for Jona (and requests for updates!) – especially now as he finally finishes the chemo treatments.
Jona has been looking forward to this milestone; the final chemo treatments have been very taxing, due in part to their cumulative effect. Consequently, he has had to take more breaks in between, resulting in a later finish date.
We are praising the Lord for giving grace, strength, and (amazing!) ability to Jona to "bounce back" after each chemo treatment. 
  • Please continue to pray! Jona is scheduled to have his last two chemo treatments the weeks of July 26 and August 2, if things go as planned.
  • Pray that Jona will do well with the final chemo treatments and will have the strength needed to start school again in mid-August.
  • Pray that the tests the doctors will run after the final round will show no sign of cancer.
  • Pray for wisdom and grace for the family, especially as they minister to others going through similar trials. Esther again commented on the many opportunities the Lord has given them to minister to other families who have children with cancer.
Thank-you again for praying! We truly appreciate the many ways you all have been an encouragement to the entire family.
