Baby Drake

i have a new nephew. his name is drake. he was born yesterday morning, and he is just as cute as can be. grandkid #11, boy #3 for our family.

but he needs your prayers- he has a blood disorder that caused his body to attack his platelets, which has caused some bleeding in his brain. he's in the NICU for now and he's receiving platelets, which will help correct the problem if all goes well.

please pray for healing in his brain, for no further bleeding, for continued acceptance of the donor platelets, and for my brother and his wife.

we have a God who gives us miracles. dave and i experienced this with our son, and we are confident that God has a plan for Drake that will be good and for His glory.
please pray, and i will post updates as they are available.

"For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
And we are confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for."

1 John 5:4, 5, 14&15


  1. I thought of Ty when they first called. I remembered your journey and our answered prayers...I expect God will place His hand on Drake and create His own touch in his life! Praying with you all!

  2. praying . praying . praying
