Philippians 1:2-6 (New International Version)
 2Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thanksgiving and Prayer
 3I thank my God every time I remember you. 4In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

We’re Headed Home! 

We’ve completed one chapter in our pilgrimage and are looking forward to the next.  In the coming weeks, I pray that I can process, in words, what I have experienced both spiritually and physically.

We have felt God’s continual presence and care this week.  It is with an overflowing and grateful heart that we thank you for being part of this journey with us.   Your prayers and notes of encouragement are continuing to bless us.  There has been a God given peace because of your constant prayers on our behalf.

We are continuing to see improvements and are anticipating more in the days ahead.  The left arm and hand are straightening some.  My right leg, where they removed the stem cells, is still very bruised, swollen, and stiff because of having to be held down so my leg would not jump during the procedure.  When that heals, it will be amazing to see what happens.

God was glorified in the clinic on Friday.  We had a sweet time of prayer with Marilee and Chip before they left to go to San Diego for a few days of vacation.  After a final meeting with Dr. Andrade, we prayed with him and his nurse Angelina to thank God for using them to bless us this week.  There were tears and heartfelt thanks from all of us. 

Wish I could find the right words to express how special it has been to share this week with Larry and just be with him all week.  He is definitely one of my greatest blessings from God.

We’ll continue to update the blog from time to time.  Please know that God used you in a mighty way to bless us more than we could have ever asked or imagined.  We love and appreciate you.

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”- Psalm 19:14


  1. The weather is perfect for your return. Beautiful Blue Sky and should be 78 when you land! You and Larry should write a book: "Faith, Prayer & Miracles". God is good all the time, all the time God is good!


    Love & Blessings, Jim

    Welcome Home Mrs. Debbie & Pastor Larry! Welcome Home! We know exactly what you mean about the "power of God's Presence" being with you in such a mighty way... that is what it was like for us in Denver at National Jewish Hospital... we will never forget it... and your journey brought back some many wonderful memories... thanks for letting us "walk" with you during this time...
    Love & Hugs,
