Isaiah, the young man we’ve been praying for
Today we got an opportunity to visit with Isaiah, our young friend who has survived a 350 foot drop in a car crash, has waken up from a coma but has experienced some brain damage. He has been making *remarkable* progress, ahead of every expectation. What an encouragement to hear him say, “cool” when we told him how many people have been praying for him. And to nod his love back and grip hands when we told him we loved him. His mom was a gracious mediator, drawing out responses from him and encouraging us with her steadfast love.
I asked Isaiah if I could take a picture to document his “celebratory” status, and he gave a sweet smile. Of course, my camera futzed and missed the smile. He is scheduled to come home in June and continue his work relearning functions like writing and speaking and walking. This is such a praise. Such a glorious work. We continue to pray. It is a marathon, not a sprint.
Thanks be to God. And thank you for your prayers, my friends.
