Abbey Update

The doctor came in a little while ago and gave us an update on her progress.  He said that the cancer cells in her marrow are down.  Praise God!  He didn't give us an exact number on the reduction, but he said that he is satisfied with the results.  She will have another bone marrow biopsy next Friday, October 17th, and we will be relying on God to continue to reduce the cancer in her blood.  Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us and we ask you all to continue to bombard heaven with your requests.  We love you all!

Praise the Lord!! He answers prayers! It was so neat to have everyone at the hospital today praying. We were so blessed to be able to pray for you. There were many churches represented and the names bought a smile - Faith, Hope and Grace - with the Gospel of course (Faith Fellowship, Hope Community, Grace Church and the Gospel House). What a display of the "C"hurch BEING the Church. Also reading the comments coming from all over - from PA to Georgia - people you don't even know!! What a blessing to me to see so many caring people. Sleep well tonight :) Love and Hugs, Marcie and Jason

Shelley and Jim, this is Bekky, I actually met you for the first time at Grace during communion about 2 weeks ago. I have been praying for your family through this testing time with Abbey. I am so happy to hear that the cancer counts are going down! Amen! I know about 3 other churches which have Abbey and your whole family on their prayer lists. The power of prayer and God's love will shine through your family! Your family is such an inspiration. With love, Bekky Bittner

Dear Colbert Family,
We heard about precious Abbey through Peter and Laurel Greer and want to let you know that we are praying daily for her and your family.
Praise the Lord for the encouraging news today.
Love in Christ,

We celebrate with you! We have been praying for Abbey steadily and have many friends in our area (and 50 couples in our "small group") who have been lifting Abbey in their prayers and will continue to. We love you guys!

Colbert Family-We are friends with some PA friends of yours. We join with you in praising our Rock and Fortress Jesus Christ for the Victory He has won for your precious Abbey!
Thank you for your daily inspiring testimony. God Bless all your family! Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you "says the Lord. "Plans for a hope and a future."
