Support Update (Good News!)
I want to share an inspiring analogy here about how things are going for us, but I don’t think that it’s needed. What is needed is being provided! We’ve been praying throughout the slow-down we’ve all been in and are still walking through, that God would resume His work in the hearts of people in our community when it came partnering with the Potter’s in our mission. And the reality is, God didn’t ever stop working. So, He never needed to resume ANYTHING. We were the ones who needed to resume trusting His timing.
Without using any more extra words, we’re excited to share that another three (maybe four) families have come on board in the last few weeks and are helping us towards our monthly goal. So, that means that since we started this stage of the journey back in late January, God’s added as many as nine new monthly partners! There’s still a little more detail needed and so we can’t say exactly what part of the goal has been reached, but whatever it will be, we are SO grateful for God’s work in our friends who have joined our team!
Medical Procedures Scheduled!
Another area we have been praying about was Bethany’s eye and veins. She was to have had a repeat of the PRK surgery on her left eye in early April but that had to be postponed due to the state’s requirements on elective surgery. We knew that meant more headaches and blurriness until it could take place. We’re thankful to report that she’s been scheduled to have the procedure late this week as the restriction on procedures like this one has been lifted. We’re grateful that the surgery center we’re using was able to fit Bethany into their schedule as they’re only doing this procedure on that single day for the indefinite future as they begin to resume normal operations.
And, another blessing is that we’ve been able to save up the funds for a procedure to help alleviate the poor blood circulation Bethany’s had in both legs for years. She has normalized life with a lot of pain, aches, and swelling and so to be able to have hope that she could be pain-free in both legs is sweet! She’s scheduled to have the procedure on both legs, with a week in between each leg, later this month and in early June.
Thank You for Praying For Us!
Thank you for EVERY time you ever pray for us. Taking time out of the flow of your day to ask God to meet our needs, to encourage our hearts, to strengthen us, is a beautiful gift for you to give!
