A Prayer Request

John and Marissa Sharbaugh have been very dear friends of ours since we adopted John into our family when he was a college student several years ago. On October 27, they had a beautiful baby boy, Malachi. Several severe health complications were found right away. He has already had one major surgery and will have more surgeries in the very near future. PLEASE pray with us for this sweet little baby boy and his dear parents as they trust the Lord to sustain, comfort, heal, and guide them during this time.

If you'd like to keep up-to-date with Malachi's progress, you can follow the picture link on the side bar to Marissa's blog.

Marissa emailed me tonight and said prayer is truly what is sustaining them during this time. If you would like a "Malachi button" to link others in prayer for the Sharbaughs, copy and paste this code into your sidebar html gadget:

This is a passage that Marissa attached in one of her updates...

"Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though outwardly we are wasting away,
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles
are achieving for us an eternal glory
that far outweighs them all.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
