Hebrews 12:1-3

Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

What does Sandra feel?

This is another very common question. I have learned allot since her accident. I assumed that everyone in a wheel chair had zero feeling below their injury, this is not true. Sandra has has muscle spasms, burning sensations and twitching which are uncomfortable, we are praying they are all  good signs of nerves connecting. She also can feel temperature cold and warm. this was interesting yesterday as she was wearing capri pants and she could tell her shins were cold and her upper legs were warm. Most of these sensations are new as time has gone on, which gets us cautiously optimistic. We are still waiting for her to move even her big toe on her own. This is typically the first step of recovery. Please continue to pray for that big toe to move. Mike


  1. We continue to pray for all of you - thank you, Mike, for educating us along the journey. Your conversational style and honesty in your updates helps us stay connected, and pray intelligently. I never thought I'd care so much about Sandra's big toe! ;)


  2. Praying for that big toe! Thanks for these Q&A's - they are very informative and help us to understand better.

  3. Count me in on the prayers for the big toe! Go Sandra Go! Continue to be strong and of good courage Mulders. We all are praying earnestly and believing that this is all temporary and Sandra will be out of that chair before you know it. Sending love and hugs,

  4. Thanks for all of your updates and some of the details. This gives us some specifics to pray for. And we do continue to pray for a full recovery. May you continue to be surrounded by HIS peace in this journey!
