Update on Mary: 2/10/14 8:00 PM
Jesus said, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." (Mark 11:24) I know that there a lot of followers of "Moving Mountains for Mary," that truly believe in our God Almighty and what His Son said in the above, because He is definitely anwering our prayers. Mountains are truly being moved! Kenny and Pete have already "let the cat out of the bag," but, our precious blo...nde-haired, blue eyed girl was able to speak to us today. The doctor put in a smaller trach today, so, the opening could be covered and Mary can speak. She sounds a little like Pete (LOL) but that will come around.
The 2nd thing that we can be very excited about is that Mary has actually had some kidney activity, which is a sign that they may be coming back to life. Even though the first thing I heard her say was that she just wanted a "short visit" at 4 and no visitors at the eight o'clock visit (because she was completely worn out today), we were all as excited as a child on Christmas morning when we gathered around the bed and heard her talk.
Please don't back off in your prayers, even though the mountains are still being moved (and there have been many in the last 38 days), she still has more mountains ahead. She still hasn't been able to eat, because of the trach and the feeding tube, there is still some problem with the pancreas and the kidneys have to do a lot better than what they are doing now. We praise our Great God for anwering our prayers and we praise you all for joining with us to offer litterly thousands of prayers for Him to answer. We can never thank you all for all you have done and are doing for Mary and the family. Thank you for all of you that came to the church service at the Chattanooga church of Christ yesterday in support of Mary and the family.
God bless you, everyone, and please keep on praying for Mary.
We love you all,
