The Stage is Set

Isaiah 43:1-3
Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name and you are mine.
When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
when you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel.

Well, God has definitely set the stage for something supernatural. We just got our kidney results back and they were not good at all. The test conclude that Elijah has significant kidney damage and the odds are extremely high for him to go into renal failure in utero or at birth. However, after consultation between our high risk doctor and the doctors in Cincinnati they called us this afternoon and still want to see us up there for more tests. We will be having an MRI, another bladder tap and ultrasound and they will come to their own conclusions,give us options and their opinion on what we should do next.
Please continue to believe with us for God to heal Elijah and make him Whole in Jesus' name. We believe that Christ paid for his sickness and disease by the stripes he bore on His back and that we do not have to receive it. Until God shows us otherwise, we are still believing and still seeking and still asking. Please pray that the Doctors have wisdom and discernment as to how to handle our case. Please pray for my children that will be here, at our house, with family, that they will be comforted and protected during this trial. And Lastly please pray that ultimately, above all else God will be glorified.
We will let you know what news we receive there as soon as it is available to us.
Love to you all.


  1. i am truly praying kelly! i love you guys!

  2. Y'all have been on my heart and mind all day today and I have been praying constantly. As I sat down tonight to see if you had found out anything from the Dr's and to read your latest post; I was reminded of the verses where people were bringing their infants to Jesus. In Luke 18:15-16 Jesus rebuked the disciples and blessed the children. "Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. BUT JESUS called them to Him and said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God."
    I imagine you and Les pressing through the crowd and lifting baby Elijah up to Jesus. There may be some who try to get in the way or tell you to do otherwise...but keep pressing in and lifting him up and praying those healing scriptures and rebuking the enemy. We are praying for healing,strength, grace, mercy, peace and protection. We are believing in the healing power of Jesus for Elijah. Love, Crystal

  3. while I was waiting for the page to load telling me your news, this chapter just popped into my mind. After reading what you wrote this chapter just gave me chillbumps: Psalm 30
    1 I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
    2 O LORD my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.
    3 O LORD, You brought my soul up from the grave;
    You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
    4 Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His,
    And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
    5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for LIFE; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.
    6 Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.”
    7 LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
    8 I cried out to You, O LORD; And to the LORD I made supplication:
    9 “What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth?
    10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy on me; LORD, be my helper!”
    11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
    12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

  4. We serve a mighty God who is able to heal all our infirmities! We are standing with y'all and believing for a complete healing for Elijah. Love you!

  5. Hey guys, I'm praying for you all and baby Elijah! Love yall!
