~A few more details about baby and me~

Here is a better description of HOW to pray for baby and me! The problem that the doctor's found is a SERIOUS problem in that somehow the placenta has torn away from the wall. It is only 40% attached. The doctors say that if it detaches more, we could loose our baby. But, they also said that with care, this can heal on it's own. So, I'm basically on complete bed rest and asking God to please HEAL AND REATTACH the placenta. I have another appointment with my doctor on Monday, March 15th and they will take another ultrasound to see how things are progressing. I'm praying and believing Jesus to heal the placenta before then. God is able!

Thank you for your prayers for baby and me. One thing is nice, my nausea is subsiding some, Praise the Lord!!! We know that God has a special plan for this little one, and we are trusting Him to work out His perfect will in our lives.

Also, could you please pray that God would guide us to some dependable honest help for the next few weeks while I'm in bed. My sweetheart Phillip is marvelous and is a HUGE HELP, but he has teaching and preaching responsibilities too. Our Kimberly is a huge help, but she has school work and music lessons, and I don't want to see her get behind. Thank you for your prayers!

I am praying for you and the baby. I am also praying you'll find honest help.

Did I tell you that this past summer I met a young lady who is from your town in Columbia. She came to England to study English. She is from a Catholic family. She came to our Christian cafe to learn more about Jesus. She is back in Columbia and I have told her about you all. I keep in touch with her and pray she will come in contact with good Christians. When you think of it...her name is Adriana.
