Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

It happened on Saturday when a friend "just happened" to be in the area. He asked what I was doing and I said, "Packing."

"Okay, I'll come help."

He drove down from Denver and we mostly talked and ate lunch. He was about to leave when he said, "Let me pray for you."

He put his hand on my shoulder and prayed something from the heart and I was overwhelmed with gratitude, not only to him but also to God for such a wonderful person.

It happened again tonight. My son suggested we give some of the furniture we'd been given to a friend's family. Wonderful people. It's too long of a story to tell, but suffice it to say, we loaded up the truck and moved it on over to their new house.

Before we left, the dad put his hand on my shoulder and said, "Let us pray for you before you leave."

I can't tell you what that meant. It almost felt like a hand reaching down from heaven, not just touching us but holding us up.

This has been a really terrible, awful, horrible, wonderful experience. And it just keeps getting better the more I relax and let God work out the details.

Chris,
Once again I was listening to your program on my way to work today, and I heard the part where you said a listener called in and basically told you to stop talking so much about what is going on in your life. I think I speak for the majority of your listeners in saying that's ridiculous! Personally, I am very concerned about your family and I welcome all updates! Please don't let her discourage you from sharing your life with us! Just as you care about your listeners, your listeners care about you too. Thanks for being so open.

What an amazing family of God we have. Sometimes I feel like I wish I could do more than pray for you (and others), but then I realize that there's nothing MORE that I could do. To bring our needs into the throne room of the holy and living God- what a gift!

It doesn't always help to know that what's happening is referred to as "light affliction," certainly not in your case- with all you and your precious family has had to endure. But to have our hope in Jesus, and to know that the end result will be His glory is often comforting.

Just remember that there are LOTS of people who are praying for you and your family. I consider it an honor.

My best to your whole family- and I pray you'll all be together soon.
