Sad News

Hi all... some of you might have noticed we put a few new pictures on here... that can only mean one thing- we are out in town where we have internet access.

Probably most of you have heard of the heart breaking news about Jonathan's sister Joanna. It was about three weeks ago now their Dr. found a tumor the size of an orange in Joanna's brain. They operated and were able to get 90% of the tumor removed. After testing of the tumor we got this email from Jonathan's Mom:
"The dr. explained that there are 3 levels of Cancer, 1-4 and Jo has #4, the worst level. They will start chemo on friday, but they are saying it will probably give her one to 2 years to live. I feel like this is so surreal. We will ask the Lord for a miracle, of course, but we know our times are in His hands. We send our love, Dad and Mom"
After that email we came out to town so that Jonathan would be able to call his family. When we're in the bush we have no phone access, so he hadn't talked to his family at all yet. He has been able to talk to Joanna, and his Mom and a couple of his other siblings, so we're thankful for this opportunity.

Please pray for Joanna, her husband Curtis and their three young kids, Natalie, Reuben and Kaylie. We know that nothing is too difficult for the Lord and the He can heal her! We know He loves her more than anyone, and His thoughts are precious toward His children! Pray that as Joanna and Curtis and the doctors try to figure out what course of action to take from here that they would have wisdom that could only come from the Lord.

Thank you all for your prayers on their behalf!
