Wednesday, September 17



This is the day that the Lord has made, I WILL rejoice and be glad in it. That is so hard on days like these but I press on and say Praise the Lord oh My Soul. Who Am I to understand Your ways...who am I to give you anything but praise.

CJ had his CT scan late last night and his MRI of the brain early this morning.. We specifically need prayer for clear results. We are thanking God in advance for those very results. We need prayer to guard our thoughts and hearts as we wait. It is so hard to sit and wait for the results. CJ is struggling today mainly with his stomach and his rash. Please ask for relief in those specific two areas. He is praying for relief for his stomach right now.

I need to send this lap top home with Chris so Allie can take it to class but I wanted to let you know where we are and what are prayer needs are. We don't think we can get through this without all of you and your prayers.



We are humbled at how far this has reached and how many people are praying for CJ. God has moved the spirit of His people to pray and I ask that you continue to persevere in prayer. He promises us that when His people who are called by His name, humble themselves and pray, he hears them and turns to them and heals their land. I will claim that healing for the disease in this land that is attacking my boy.

As hard as this is, I want to share with you that since CJ was little I have prayed God would use him mightily to lead many to Him or back to Him. In my heart I always knew that what I was asking for was not for a life of ease and would lead down difficult roads. I am overwhelmed at what is happening but I am trusting in Gods faithfulness.

I wish I had the time and space to write and tell you how many ways God prepared us for this day. He prevented us from moving two years ago away from this city that has one of the top hospitals in the nation for this treatment. He brought us to a church home where we have a family of support that is like nothing I have ever seen or heard of. They are truly living servants of Jesus Christ and His people. We love you and thank God for bringing us to you at Palm Vista. He has given me and Chris parents that are walking through this with us every step of the way. He lead us to start this blog months ago and we were never quite sure why. There are so many little things that point to His sovereign hand in this. I know this has been filtered through His sovereignty as hard as that is sometimes to comprehend and accept. He is even continuing to press on my mind certain individuals who I have been praying for for a few years now. Especially one who God has pressed on my heart and mind. I know they are reading this blog and I just want you to know that even though we are battling this, I am still in prayer for you. God has given me the grace to continue to pray for you and asked me to not give up even now. May your heart and eyes and mind be opened to the amazing love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who willingly gave His own life as a ransom for many.

Tomorrow will be the big day. He will need to be bathed in prayer continually. He will be having the operation for his port, the bone marrow samples, spinal fluids and possibly a spinal injection and anything else they need to do while he is under. He may even start the chemotherapy as early as tomorrow. We are still hoping for a release at the end of this week or early weekend by the latest.

Continue to pray with us. Thank you to all the people that are fasting today, tomorrow and/or Friday. May God honor your heart as you seek him through fasting and prayers.
By Gods Amazing Grace,
The George Family

CJ and family;
Latin America Mission's office as a whole prayed for you this AM and we are all trusting that the doctors will continue to have good news for you. I wanted to share a bit of Psalm 34 with you. David's world is falling apart to the point that he had to pretend to be crazy in order to get out alive. As he reflects on all that he has and was experiencing he proclaims God's goodness: "I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together." The psalm goes on to express God's goodness, mercy and love to those who fear him and are in need. I pray that His care, love and protection will be evident every minute of every day as you walk through this. We love you all and will continue to lift you all up in prayer and any other way we can.

Dear CJ -

We are so grateful to God for the good news about the test results.

I just want you to know that there are even people praying for you in Mendoza, Argentina. God hears us, CJ, just as he listened to you when you cried out for him to take away your pain the other day. We're excited to watch as he displays his power through you.

Psalm 77:1, 2a, 11, 14
I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. When I was in distress, I sought the Lord… I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.


Love,
Marcos, Sofia, and Mr. and Mrs. Herrero

Hey you guys,
I am rejoicing with you in the news you got today! I will continue praying, especially for Thursday.
Carolyn H. is putting CJ on the prayer list at her church tonight.
CJ - I am so grateful for your faith in our Lord. You have been, and continue to be a blessing and an inspiration to me in that area. You are so right that God never leaves you or forsakes you. I pray you continue to cling to Him when things are easy and when things are hard. Remember, His hold is tighter on you and He will never let you go!
May the God of peace fill all your hearts and minds today.
Love, Vonda G.

Hey C.j,

Man, you don't even know how many people are praying and fasting for you, right now!! You truly are a blessed young man to have so many people loving you the way they are. We are continuing to pray for your healing, and for the results of the MRI, and the CT. I've missed you a lot!!! Hope to see you at home very soon, maybe we can hang out and watch a movie or something. Love you bro, may God bless you, and give you strength to preserve through this trial.

Dear CJ
Because I am so far away from you -my most exciting part of my day is to come to a computer and look at "Break The Mold" to find out what is going on with You! I am so grateful to know that the LORD is watching over you and that every person who ever knew you, including me, is praying as hard as they can for you, my Sweetheart Angel Nephew. You never-ever leave my thoughts. I love you every second of every minute of every moment of every hour of every day my CJ. Be strong CJ. Everything is going to be O.K. I love you.

CJ,
You are AWESOME for being able to stand this. It is so cool. We all miss you at the church, even though I am a girl (I am CeCe), I miss you a LOT! My dad got an email from his friend saying that He was driving to work at 8:00 A.M. and he was listening to the radio, when a man came on, and talked about YOU, and you situation! THIS WAS IN TENNASSEE TOO! Isn't that so cool. I am praying for you so hard, and I am trying to work on the blog that I made for you (it is a privet blog, I have to invite people to go in). You are so funny! I am always thinking about you now. I want to visit you again. I am even fasting for you, and I am not a good faster. COME HOME SOON! Hope to see you at church soon.

Praying In Christ,
CeCe

Hi CJ,
I love you and am thinking about you all the time, I pray for you, daddy and mommie, and ask GOD to give you strength and peace everyday. I know this is scary for you, remember there are so many people (probably hundreds) praying for you, that makes my heart overflow. You and your family are so loved by so many.
FEAR NOT, FOR I AM WITH YOU, BE NOT DISMAYED, FOR I AM YOUR GOD.
I WILL STRENGTHEN YOU, YES I WILL HELP YOU, I WILL UPHOLD YOU WITH MY RIGHTEOUS RIGHT HAND. ISAIAH 41:10
I love you guys,

I think it is more likely in the thousands.
I have never personally witnessed anything like this before. It is amazing.

Anonymous said...

CJ...I'm proud of you for being so strong while you are going through all this. Buddy..I know it hurts but hang in there because these tests and medicines will make you better. It is just going to take a little time and then you'll be out swimming and playing baseball again. Uncle Bobby is going to take you and your Dad to a baseball game so focus not on what might hurt or scare you but on what is FUN and what you want to do as soon as you get all this behind you. God knows you are brave so hand tough.

You do not know me, but my daughter Kristin Barnes is a friend of
Jackie's. She has asked us to pray & our church is also praying. Our
pastor is preaching on Ephesians 3:14-21. And we are as a church
memorizing it (or trying to! Harder as we get older!).
This from the English Standard Version.

14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every
family[a] in heaven and on earth is named, 16that according to the
riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power
through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in
your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the
breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of
Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the
fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we
ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be
glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,
forever and ever. Amen.

I hope this encourages you all. You are in our hearts and prayers.

Rejoicing in Him,

Jann Dunham
