I took these comments from some of the emails Mary has sent since we've been away from home. - Mark
Santa Fe, Thursday April 13
Today, Thursday, we visited my first mother-in-law. She has fairly advanced
Alzheimers. She didn't seem to recall who I was (as I expected)... but showed
some recognition when I talked of Aaron... and when I called Aaron and let him
talk to her (I went in not knowing whether she would still recall Aaron or
not... she & he had a special bond... Aaron cried ALL the time as an infant...
Rosabelle was the ONLY person that could get him to stop!). I am so glad we got
to see her. ...and no, we won't be spending Easter with her.
Please continue to keep us in prayer for travel mercies. Also, that God would
again lift my food allergies (& Mark's too) while we're serving in Mississippi
so that we can eat what is served to us without ill-effects.
I always love to hear how God has answered our prayers. We have also
continuously been keeping the [Easter] play, all participants, and all who will
see it held up in daily prayer. Mark's been on Patrick's emails regarding
Joy... and that has been so wonderful seeing/hearing how God's hand has been on
both her and Patrick thru all of this trial. I've put this week's prayer
requests into my notebook so I can keep up daily with them... our internet
access has been far less than Mark anticipated.
Weather for us has been dry & sunny since getting out of the Silicon Valley.
Aaron (my son) has said most days have still had rain there. The wet rainy
weather is PERFECT, if you're a duck!!! I hope you're all staying dry!
