Happy Father’s day, everyone!
In the gaps between longer updates from the families, you can (probably) start expecting these shorter posts outlining specific ways we can be coming before the throne of grace for Autumn, Elijah, and their families. I have seen through this situation in completely radical ways how, when we pray specifically, our Father answers specifically. In and through Him, we are ‘more than conquerers’!
God is bigger.

Points for prayer for Autumn, highlighted by her mother, Cinnamon:
- Autumn’s vision. Her optic nerve is likely damaged, as well as cranial nerves 3 and 6. All of these are specifically hindering her vision.
- Her emotional/social processing. Her short-term memory is getting better, but she really lacks the depth that emotional processing gives a person. For instance, there is little initiation in conversation.
- As usual, for the grace of Jesus Christ to be tangibly felt by Autumn’s family. . .the grace that makes enduring the impossible, possible.
