Friday Morning Update

First of all, we want to thank you again for the many thousands of partners now circling the globe who are praying for our kids, and especially Lindsay Bear. What a privilege to be a part of God's family. It is amazing and humbling to have this outpouring of love and prayer support in the midst of this trial.

Lindsay had a peaceful night. They did not back down the heart and lung machine, but have opted to do a Ct scan of the brain and also another procedure that will check out the circulation, and get inside the heart to see what is actually going on.

God has been giving us HIS peace in indescribable ways -- "far and above our human comprehension and understanding."

Today I journaled on my daily Freedom Fighter blog what God has been teaching me. Check it out:

I will update the blog as soon as I have information. Please know that the kids are know able to read your comments right away since someone provided a wireless card for them.

God bless you!

I cannot imagine the agony you are going thru right now. I have a little 3 year old granddaughter and I can only ponder what I would do if I were in your situation. I am a friend of your Uncle Ron Burgers and I live in Atlanta, GA. You and your family are in my daily prayers. May peace be with you as you know Lindsay is in the bosum of the Heavenly Father.

Dear Laura and Jon,
The Lord brought little precious Lindsay to my mind in the shower yesterday...I am praying for her and I BELIEVE the Lord will work a miracle~ May HE continue to be your peace through "this day" I know it has been forever, but PRAISE God for the bond that WE have in HIM~ I am praying.

Just want you to Know there are people in California praying for you and your family - particularly Lindsey. We know that Jesus is holding little Lindsey in His arms and is bringing forth complete healing to her - so she is in good hands. We pray that you will continue to experience peace that passes all understanding as well. To God be the Glory for the GREAT things he is doing in this situation. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not your own understanding.
You are in our prayers constantly!

Praising for answered prayer as we prayed for a quiet night for Lindsay. All day today I have been thinking "Lindsay is safe in the arms of Jesus and He loves her even more than all of us put together" She is totally in His care.zbxuz
Praying for a miracle.
Love hugs and prayers,
