Prayer Request for Jeff

IMG_6138Friends of ELEVATE, This post comes to you from Jeff's wife Becky, and their son, Jon Alex.

 It is the hope of our family that each installment of ELEVATE blesses and encourages you. Our family struggles often become the material on which Jeff bases his blog.  Today is no exception. Jeff became ill a little over a week ago with what we thought was a simple case of the flu. Unfortunately, he continued to decline, and by Saturday it was necessary for him to be hospitalized.  He is struggling with a very severe infection and it would appear that his recovery may be a long uphill climb.

Being a parent of a special needs child presents challenges on many levels, but it seems the bulk of our attention is always focused on our son - his needs, his diet, his health. Now we turn our attention to Jeff and ask you to join us in praying for his quick and full recovery.  We are certain that this trial will produce good things, because God promises that He will work all things together for good. As you know, however, He does not promise that the path will always be easy.

If you are a regular follower of the blog, then you have already been walking down this path with us, listening to Jeff's heart and hopefully being encouraged by God's faithfulness . Would you continue down this road with us by asking God to, once again, be faithful to us and show His mighty power to restore and heal. We need your prayers , and promise to share all God's faithfullness and the lessons learned as we face this challenge.

Thank you,

Becky and JonAlex
