I would like to thank each of you who have sent precious letters in for Mattie’s wall. He is truly surrounded in prayer! The Word of the Lord, prayers, and precious drawings surround him. It has been quite a testimony to the Love of Christ as the medical staff watch this wall of love grow. Mattie has received mail from all over the US, Canada, and even 2 from Poland! Thank you so much for your encouraging words and your prayers for our sweet boy.
We are still waiting a surgery date. We were told it could be as early as Wednesday, but that is very tentative due to the injured children being brought into Children’s Mercy from Joplin for care. (This affects Mattie because in order for him to have his surgery, there has to be a bedspace available in the PICU). As you pray for Mattie, please pray for the children who have been injured in Joplin, MO and for the many families that have lost loved ones.
