~Elijah is home~

Dearest Prayers,
Here is an update that Phillip sent out this morning.

Thank you so much for your prayers. Elijah was released last night and is improving. Praise God! This is a miracle for just yesterday the office staff told me that Elijah would be in the hospital for days and that they would be transporting him to another hospital with better pediatric care. We got home so late that I am just now updating you.
Please keep praying for Elijah for his breathing is still not normal and he still has a raspy cough and we do not want him to regress. The doctor sent him "home" with our commitment to follow up with a respiratory therapist for several days and several prescriptions to take. Those of you who read our blog know that we are now not living in our own house due to the mold situation and with baby Mary taking on some of the same symptoms that Elijah started with we felt it best to leave our house immediately. We are presently looking for a house and need God's guidance. Thank you so much for praying.

Yours for holiness,
Phillip and family

Certainly sounds like God touched little Elijah. Thankful that your family is together again, and believing that God WILL provide the home you need. Prayers still going up for you all!

What a blessing to have your little one back in your "shelter" and arms again!!! Just can't imagine what all emotions you've been facing. We have been praying for all of you and appreciate hearing the good report. We are continuing to pray about your housing situation. God has triumped AGAIN in Elijah's case and He WILL AGAIN be faithful in leading you to just the right place. How can I be sure? His Word tells us that "whatsoever we ask the Father in His (Jesus) name, He will do it". That was a verse we just recently taught our boys. This week's verse begins with our new letter "W". "Whatsoever time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee". I told Jeff that I wonder what might happen this week that I might need the verses reminder. When I received the urgent call from Daddy to pray for Elijah, I knew the verse had a purpose for this week. May you find our God more trustworthy than ever as He continues to answer prayers! Much love, Susan Hunt and family
