We met a family tonight that was waiting for news of their relative who is just five days old. After having surgery to close a valve in his heart, little Andrew Montes has begun to fight for his life. Please pray for Andrew and his mother Michelle and father Joseph Montes. This family is fighting for the same thing we are...more time and healing. Please join us by keeping the Montes family in your prayers.

As the day comes to an end we want to always thank our many friends, new friends, and extended family members who have taken up the call to petition God for Witt Lupher. The outpouring of love through your words and comments still blows us away every time we read of your faithful prayers for Witt. His day was filled with mom and dad taking care of him and the nurses and doctors watching over him as he completed another glorious day with us. Many of us got to hear his voice today as the sounds of crying filled his room. Melanie, his mom was quick to hold and comfort him and to reassure him that she was there and it was okay. To be honest, I was a little overcome with emotion as I watched my daughter and grandson together. Their closeness and bond is fun to watch grow. God's love fills Witt's room. Praise hymns interrupt the sounds of monitors that occasionally beep, seemingly just out of habit. Verses from God's word surround his bed and constant prayer stands at his door, guarding Witt each hour of the day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing to remember Witt everyday. Your prayers are making a tremendous difference. We would love to meet all of you someday...have a blessed night.
