I have a huge prayer request. I previously posted on the bacterial meningitis outbreak that is happening in my town and now I am asking you to pray. This is the school my boys attend. (Both boys have been cleared.) Currently, there have been 7 confirmed cases
) with up to 11 in the hospital showing meningitis symptoms.
My prayer request is two-fold; 1.) for the sick kids and their families as well as the families of the kids who’ve died and 2.) for the town, for this to be used as a wake-up for those who don’t know Jesus and His healing power.
In the midst of all of this there has been some good news. Jeremiah Mitchell (6, Kindergarten) was given only 25% chance of survival with the doctors saying he’d have to have both arms and legs amputated if he lived. Now, they’re saying he’s improving and they’ve found a pulse in his knees which is fantastic!
Thank you for taking the time out to pray for our town and our kids. Please pass this one to everyone your church and your friends. Even if they don’t pray they probably know someone who does. You may never know how appreciated it is!
