Prayer Requests

Most urgently, please pray for some dear friends that live in Romania. I just found out that a friend drowned this morning (19 years old), after jumping in a river to cool off; they have not found him yet. He's one of six children and my family has been close with them the past 6 or so years. His older two sisters have moved to the states to attend college, so our family has stayed in touch with them. We were actually going to be hanging out with the oldest this weekend, but she is now on her way back home to Romania. Please pray for this family. Pray God's peace and comfort is over them.

Continue to pray for my brother, as he's traveling to Liberia and will be there for 10 days. He's currently on the plane and heading that way! They had to change flights and leave a day late, after Continental cancelled all flights to Liberia. Continue to pray for safety, culture awareness, encouragement to the people there, and also a great trip! And, his return home too! Pray for my sister in law Heidi, and her two kids; Ethan (4), and Adelaide (3). I get to see them this weekend! 

Pray for our oldest as he continues to have fun in Florida, and safe travels back next week! It feels like he's been gone forever, and I'm ready to have him home. Kai asked me yesterday, when Kade would be back. 

Please keep my mom in your prayers; she has surgery next Monday; the 15th. Pray for the surgery to go well and the recovery afterwards! 

Please pray for Edwin and I; he has surgery next Tuesday; the 16th.  Pray for the surgery to be successful and the recovery afterwards. 

Thank you for listening and thank you for being family, friends, and bloggy support that I know will lift us up in prayer! 


  1. I had heard about this from another friend. Your friends from Romania. I will spend some time praying for this family. I'm trusting that he is with Jesus now, although I'm sure it's left a big hole in his family's heart.

    Sorry about your cake balls not turning out. I found that I had to keep them in the freezer and pull a few out at a time. I noticed it worked better this way.

    May you feel how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ today.

  2. Hi Michelle -
    So sorry to hear about your friend. So sad. I will keep them in my prayers.


  3. So sorry to hear about your friend. Sending prayers for all your requests.
