My Dad: Answer to Prayers

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you again for praying for my Dad. They found that the infection was caused by the port in his neck. After they removed it, his fever returned to normal. Our family went to see him tonight for the first time since Monday night – it was good for us just to be there with him again. It is possible that he could come home this weekend – Happy Fathers Day Dad!

I will return to our weekly update routine. Thank you for your attentiveness to this need in addition to so many other needs, critical needs, that people have right now.

A friend has the following attached to the bottom of her emails: “Share each other’s troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ.” Gal. 6:2 and “The word fellowship has lost most of its Biblical meaning. “Fellowship” now usually refers to casual conversation, socializing, food, and fun. Real fellowship is experiencing life together.” (Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life) I am very on board with this definition of fellowship, believing that it is this kind of culture that God desires for His body. As I receive your responses to our emails, it seems to me that you value this kind of fellowship as well. It is a pleasure experiencing life with you.

Peace to you,
Lisa (Dan, Rebekah, and Will)
