Sam has been undergoing scans all last week and the results show there are still lesions on Sam's liver so the next action is a PET scan to be given hopefully sometime this week. Please press in with prayer for these lesion to be nothing but scar tissue. Claim health and keep asking God for 100% cancer free!

GUESS WHAT WE SAW...
The mass that was in Katie's chest has SHRUNK to LESS THAN HALF THE SIZE!!!!C'Mon!!! That's worthy of some PRAISE and CELEBRATION!!!
We also found out that Katie's port us healing quite nicely! What we need now is for the skin over the port to GET THICK! So that's your cue...pray for 'THICK SKIN'! ;)
Katie also has to get that shot again...remember the one that everyone told her would be really painful last time and it wasn't?! Well we need to pray that 'the shot will NOT cause Katie ANY pain' again!!
Katie will have to continue the shots in her abdomen each day for her next two week stint at home. Please continue to pray for the grace and strength to do this each day.
Katie is discovering that her sense of smell is quite heightened from the chemo. This effects what she is hungry for or if anything even sounds good. It also causes funny phrases to cone out of her mouth! Yesterday she said that one of the nurses came in to her room in the middle of the night and she smelled SO clean and fresh! Katie said she smelled like, 'she had taken a bath in Downy!' this was a 'good smell' moment! Lol
Katies journey is FAR from over...remember the chemo process alone is over four months long! We are SO GRATEFUL for the abundance of love and support that has poured in over the past month! It's OVERWHELMING to be surrounded by the LOVE of Jesus and the evidence of His sweet body at work!
Thank you for your prayers. We covet them for these children of God.
Mark 10:46-52 NIV
Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
Luke 18:1-8 NIVThen Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’
“For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”
And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
I want Jesus to return and see this type of faith on this earth. Press in with me in prayer and claim health. Knock, knock, knocking on heavens door. But let's not stop with just Sam, Keegan and Katie. We need to press in for Summer, Lisa, Emily, Milly, Joanne, Sara G, Hailey, Tripp, Ian, Lucy, Ansley, Beautiful Light and Turquoise, Gary, and many, many more people.
Praying and praying,
