Please Pray

Our very dear friends, Josh and Deb, have received some devastating news. Their son Noah, who is almost 6 months old, has been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that is causing degeneration of the white matter in his brain. Noah struggles with feeding issues and his development has slowed as well. There is no treatment for this condition, only a management of the symptoms as they develop. Life expectancy cannot be predicted at this time but it is unlikely to exceed 10 years.

I am at a loss of words. My heart is completely broken for them as I cannot imagine what they must be going through. Deb and Josh are two of the strongest Christian people that I know and Noah is so blessed to have them as parents. They have great faith in the Lord and of course are turning to Him for strength with this recent development in their lives. I ask you to please join me in lifting them up in prayer and to please pray for little Noah to be healed.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." - Proverbs 3:5
