We had a wonderful prayer evening this past Wednesday. We had some new prayer warriors to join us, we are very grateful to you for joining in, I hope you will join us each Wednesday at 9:00 (Central Time) for group prayer. Everyone is welcome.

I got to visit with Mr. All Smiles Jack yesterday. He is just the cutest thing, I could just totally squeeze his cheeks and eat him up!!! He is such a cutie. He was sleeping when I got there, so I got to visit with Katie for a little while before he woke up. At first it looked as if he might not be in such a great mood when waking up, but after just a few minutes he was all smiles and seemed to be in a great mood when I left. Go to his CB page and leave them so some notes of encouragement that you all are so good about doing. These messages mean alot to them.

I was able to speak to Ariel's dad by phone a few times yesterday. They finished up some preliminary appointments late yesterday and were able to go home for the weekend. They will return on Sunday for more appointments on Monday and her surgery is scheduled for Tuesday morning. It appears at this time that it will be a lengthy surgery. They will be removing more of the area around the mole and also taking some lymph nodes from underneath both arms. After the pathology reports comes back on these, they will decide on a protocol for her treatment. I plan to be with them during her surgery and I will find out if they have had a chance to set up a CB page yet or not. I will let you know. Please be praying for Ariel, her twin sister and her parents. I am not sure if there are other siblings or not. They are in the whirlwind of mass confusion right now and need your prayers for peace, comfort and specifically that this cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes.

Please be praying for James and his family. He is getting weaker and it appears that he may be getting close to his journey's end. Please keep them and the St Jude families that all love him so much in your prayers.

Please keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and prayers. If there is a relief effort going on in your area, please try to be a part of it. If there is not one and you want to contribute in some way, contact me. We have direct contact with a lady by the name of Roberta who has about 30 children in her home that she takes care of on a daily basis in Haiti. Some have already been to check on her and the children and make sure they are okay. She did have one little boy that lived with her to lose his life when a wall surrounding their home fell on him. Everyone else is okay and trying to help others as best they can. The Haiti relief team here will be sending necessary items and money directly to her for her to help get to others and take care of the children in her home. Please keep this situation in your prayers.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!
