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!

Plans are made

Well we are excited to report Sandra is registered to start rehab in Detriot starting August 13th. Our plans are to be in Detriot Monday to Wednesday for the next 30 to 90 days. This will allow me to work Thursday and Fridays and have some family time on the weekends.
Our time in Detriot was very beneficial, and we are excited to the possibilities that lie ahead. The therapist said Sandra is a good candidate and should see improvements. We are excited with every improvement we have seen already. Sandra's injury should be chest level but she is gaining more trunk control and can tighten her abs on her own, these small steps are exciting but remind us we have we have a long way to go.
Keep us in your prayers as we will get to know the 401 very well.  I imagine we will get tired of the drive so I've started looking for flights already


  1. So relieved to get this update! Praising God with you for every step of improvement and trusting you will be able to cope with all the challenges along the way...Prayerfully connected, Irene and Charles

  2. Good for you Sandra. Good to hear that God has placed you on a path to recovery. Let us know one day when you are heading by and we can get together.


  3. Praying for you guys! As always I am encouraged by your optimism, enthusiasm, and trust in God's promises throughout this journey!

  4. Sandra you are a beautiful and courageous women of God, and his love and strength is shining through you. May our Saviour continue to go before you and all the family, on this new part of the journey. Praise God for the provision of this rehab centre.
    Our love and prayers will be with you every day......Val & Peter.

  5. This is such positive news for Sandra to have an opportunity like this. We pray for the way for you both to travel to and from to be made easily and safely. We also pray the girls will also be able to make the adjustments for Mom and Dad to be gone each week once school starts. Continued prayer for continued healing too.

  6. You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. We pray that God will give you complete healing. Jake and Arlene
