We know that we have tens of thousands of people lifting our little Susana up before the throne of God. Please don’t stop. We thank you all so much for your love, offers of support, and mostly your prayers. Without the Lord, we would be utterly lost without any hope, but through the grace of Jesus, we stand upon the rock and find our refuge in Him. This has been the hardest day of our lives ever, but we are so thankful that we have the God of this universe to call out to, cry out to, and lean upon for strength, endurance, and hope.
Well, the doctor has told us that things are not looking good for Susana based on the statistics. But we know that our God is much greater than statistics. He is the great physician. We know that the final word begins and ends with Him. Psalm 139 reminds us that all the days of Susana’s life were written in His book before one of them ever came to be. This does not take God by surprise. His will is going to be accomplished in all of this. We just need the grace moment by moment to accept the will of God. Just like Jesus agonized in the garden before the cross and was sweating drops of blood because of the emotional pain, so we too agonize over what we are experiencing and what difficulties we anticipate in the near future. But also just as Jesus ended his time of agony and tears in the garden with the words of complete surrender to the Father in "not my will, but thy will be done", so too we end our times of tears and agony each moment with the same words, "Lord, may your will be done."
We are in the process of praying through and figuring out where the best place will be for her to get treatment. We are looking into St. Judes in Memphis, one of the leading cancer hospitals, but we were just told by the doctor here who talked with a doctor there that they don’t think she will be accepted because St Jude’s does not currently have a research project going on that pertains to the type of cancer that she has. So, we are also considering some other options, but are not yet sure.
- Please pray that the Lord will lead us to the best hospital for her treatment.
- Please pray that the tumors don’t put any pressure on her spine which could cause paralysis
- Please pray that the chemo and treatment plan will aggressively attack the cancer
- Please pray for continued strength for Susana and our family
- Please pray that we will give glory to God in ALL things.
