We have been so blessed with continued support from God's family as Alanna has battled with Lyme Disease and two serious co-infections over the last five and a half months. Many are praying and wonder how she is doing so we have decided to start a prayer blog to keep folks updated on her condition. The disease attacked her digestive tract and throat making it impossible for Alanna to sing without burning sensations in her throat. It has been almost six months since she has been able to sing in our services. The Lyme specialist we are working with believes there may also be some nerve damage. Though the past several months have been difficult God has been good...abundantly good. We believe, based on a clear promise from God, that Alanna is going to be fully restored to health and free from disease. She is currently undergoing intense treatment for Lyme. Due to the disease not being caught quickly and severity of it, it is projected she will need at least nine months of treatment... Unless God chooses to bring healing sooner. She is struggling with a lot of muscle and joint pain, as well as some nausea, headaches, and feeling flush/feverish and fatigue. We are thanking the Lord that there has been some relief from the constant burning that she had been experiencing in her abdomen! The specialist told us she would go through a "healing crisis" time...but this means the treatment is working. We begin revival again this week and are asking special prayer for Alanna... That God would ease the joint pain as it is painful for her to play the piano right now and give her strength once again as He has done all throughout the summer in camps. We also would value specific prayer for God to help everything heal correctly so she can sing again without pain. We are believing God for full recovery!!!
Throughout this illness journey God has time and again gone before us in amazing ways. We have watched Him provide for us repeatedly for which we praise Him! However, our insurance does not cover the Lyme specialist, only some of the specialized testing, and none of the treatment. Therefore, we were asked to set up a go-fund-me account to help cover our medical expenses. Please pray with us that God will continue to provide for needs as hearts respond to Him... He knows how much we need each month to meet the expenses. If any would feel led to donate or pass the news on you can copy/paste this link:
Thanks again to all who are upholding us in prayer through this valley. We are truly blessed. We know God hears and answers prayer!!!! We are trusting In Him.
Happy in His Service
