Pray for our Brother!!!!!!!!




Chris and I got to LR on Thursday to celebrate Christmas with my family. Yesterday, Chris's mom, dad and Brother (we call him the Bulldog) drove in from Tulsa, OK to join the fun. John Jr. (aka Bulldog) is one of the greatest people on the planet. He is ten years older than Chris....and it partially mentally retarded. He is one of the funniest people I know.....and has a HUGE heart. One of his greatest joys is playing Connect Four. Yesterday, we played so many rounds.....my sisters and I took turns trying to beat him. He is so good at it.

Well, this morning we got a call from Chris's parents letting us know that they found John in his hotel room (he likes his own room) unresponsive and very, very sick. Chris and I drove straight to the hotel.....and when we got there he was stretched out on the floor having seizures. It was one of the worst things I have seen in my life. We immediately called 911....and he was taken to the emergency room. We are still waiting for test results. He does not recognize any of us....he is in a weird fog right now. Please be praying for a miracle!!! Pray for the doctors to have wisdom. Chris is really broken right now. I will update you all soon.

Love,
Lindsey

I am so sorry to hear this, we will pray. I want you guys to know I just read through your whole journey and I was SO encouraged. When I see God's people fighting sin, hoping in God and trusting him in the midst of extreme hardship it can put God and his grace on display, so thank you for sharing all with us in the blogworld. Again, I have been so refreshed at you perserverance and trust in God. Blessings and Prayer sent your way :o)

Praying for your brother right now. May the Lord grant wisdom to the doctors (beyond their understanding), and may He allow you all to have perfect peace right now.

We've been praying since yesterday around noon. We're really hoping for an update on John soon. He's so loved by so many, even from afar b/c of Chris talking about him at church. Easy to garner prayers for someone everyone feels like they know!

Blessings,
