Prayer Requests

This is Louise writing for Laurie. She is leaving today for the Philippines with our Dad and grandparents. Please keep them in your prayers! They all fly out today and return on June 7th and 8th.
In other news and more prayer requests.........LAURIE IS A MATCH FOR JANET!!!!!! Janet needs a new kidney and Laurie has been going through the testing process and she found out today that she's a match!!! This is how she told Janet she is a match.....
Janet got to work today at 10. She had dialysis this morning and got to work at 10. Laurie came in a little after 10 and handed me (Louise) some stuff and then took some flowers to Janet. Janet asked why she was getting flowers and Laurie said, "That's what you get flowers for people that are going in the hospital. I'm a match!"

We were all so excited and Janet was shocked! She could barely breathe!!! I told her she better not pass out! :) She didn't know what to say! We told her she didn't have to say anything!

Then Janet called Chuck and Rachel and they were both so excited! I don't know that either of them had words either!

Here's Laurie and Janet...soon to be blood relatives!!! :)

And here's Janet's flowers.

So anyways, God has HUGE things happening!!!! You never know when you are going to be able to help someone or when God is going to work in your life!!! Please keep Laurie, Dad, Nana, Papa and Janet and her family all in your prayers!!!

Hi Laurie:

My name is Betty Jones, I know you don't know me but, I'm Janet's Aunt Betty her Mothers sister and I live in Gainesville, Fl. I've only seen pictures of you posted on your Blogspot and you're beautiful inside and out. There are no words that can express what I feel in my heart for your ultimate sacrifice of giving one of your kidneys to my neice. I know many stars will be added to your corwn of life for this unconditional gift of love. I know without a doubt that you have God living in you for God is love. There is no greater love than a friend who is willing to lay down their life for you. You are truly an example of what God would have each of us to be and you are a beautiful example of God's Love.

Janet and her familly have truly been blessed, beyond all blessings, for having you in their lives. There is no doubt about it, you are truly a blessing from God and, I can't wait to meet you and your family.

The Churches of Christ here are praying for you and Janet, that all will be successful for both of you, and that you both will have a fast recovery. I know God will answer these prayers.

Love you,

Aunt Betty
