UPDATE ON PASTOR BRUCE-PLEASE JOIN WITH US IN FAITH AND AGREEMENT, FOR HIM TO WAKE UP! THE LORD HAS NEED OF HIM!
Hi Steve, Bruce continues to progress in his health. The process to wean him off of the trach continues, and his body remains strong with good muscle tone. He is opening both eyes very wide now and it is evident that he is seeing us and the room when he is alert. He follows us and he turns his head in the direction of our voice. He is still in a coma but is showing great signs of moving towards consciousness. We take it one day at a time and the Lord has been so faithful. You can see that he is working hard to come out of this. We are so thankful for all of you who continue to support and pray for Bruce. Your love for us has touched our hearts. We are all now just waiting for him to wake up!
These are some of the scriptures that we are praying over him if you would like to agree with us.
Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is he who considers the weak and the poor; the Lord will deliver him in the time of evil and trouble.
2 The Lord will protect him and keep him alive; he shall be called blessed in the land; and You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen him on his bed of languishing; all his bed You [O Lord] will turn, change, and transform in his illness.
Isaiah 57:19 Peace, peace, to him who is far off [both Jew and Gentile] and to him who is near! says the Lord; I create the fruit of his lips, and I will heal him [make his lips blossom anew with speech in thankful praise].
Psalm 71:18 Yes, even when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not, [but keep me alive] until I have declared Your mighty strength to [this] generation, and Your might and power to all that are to come.
1 Corinthians 2:16 But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.
Again thank you all for your love and prays for Bruce. It is such a great support to know that so many of you are standing with us. Your love keeps us strong!
May the Lord cause you to reap back all that you have sown towards us.
