We were notified that Tyler (Tonya's brother) tested negative for COVID and has been asymptomatic at this point. Continue to pray for Molly as she is having all the known symptoms and that she will recover soon.

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for your continued prayers. It's been a week of ups and downs but God is at work. My day at the hospital on Sunday was very helpful in that it ruled out some dangerous complications and gave me some rest and insight as to what is going on. Thank you SOOOOO much for praying!
I learned that for some people, the combo of asthma and covid produce complications in the lungs that are neither fully asthma or fully covid. So, at this point, I am dealing with working toward recovery with a lot of rest, breathing treatments and breathing exercises that are meant to open back up areas of my lungs so that I can consistently get to normal oxygen levels. This week has include some late nights, breathing scares and dips as we have tried to figure out medications.
But I am hopeful because my coloring is better and breathing is deeper. Rest still seems critical in keeping my breathing more stable. I am so thankful that my family has long since recovered from their sickness and are back to normal. While I am trusting God's guidance that my blood oxygen will stabilize this week. The dips, especially at night are unnerving, so prayers that the blood oxygen dips stop would be a HUGE blessing.
Thank you all so much for your love, support and prayers. With all my heart I want to be back at church and see your faces! But am taking this time to learn to trust Jesus more deeply and listen to His guidance more clearly---although I defiently have my moments of freaking out--Jesus helps me get my eyes back on Him....and I know your prayers have a lot to do with that. It takes a lot to slow me down and God is using this time to teach me a lot. Thank you for persevering in praying and caring as this has been a longer road than expected!
Sending lots of love and prayers for you all and your families as I'm resting.

My mom has been fever free for 24 hours after being sick for more than 10 days, with only a little coughing left, and has her appetite mostly back. Officially she is considered no longer contagious by the CDC. I’m so thankful that her case was mild. So far my dad hasn’t gotten it. We’re praying he doesn’t because he’s in a high risk category.

Hi church family ❤️,
You know how there are those “lucky” (sarcasm😉) people who Covid hits unusually hard? Well I didn’t expect to be one of those people but God knew and He is right here with me on this journey. Because of the early medical care God provided, I’ve been able to share with you the praise last week that I did not get Covid pneumonia!
However this week has been very difficult with breathing and the doctor told me that I have plugging in the deep parts of my lungs which is giving me a lot trouble breathing that is from inflammation and Covid complications beyond a normal asthma.
I have been blessed with frequent doctors appointments virtually and breathing treatments around the clock as well as some other things that have kept me out of the hospital. That and pretty much bed rest....
I have Story upon story that I can’t wait to share with you about how God has given me peace and truth even in the scary times and how he has provided encouragement and help and medicine just as I have needed it in my struggle to breathe and get enough oxygen.
He’s truly bigger and stronger then Covid even if it gets bad.
I did want to update you all because this journey has been very up-and-down for me and I’m still very much touch and go.
Joe and I have learned a lot about early treatment and things that anyone can do at home if they get the virus. when they first get it. so if for some reason you get it reach out to us and there’s some really simple over-the-counter things and tips on how to rest, hydrate, vitimin, etc that we could give you That will help you fight it.
Thank you for your continued prayers and my heart aches for those like Melody’s dad who are in the hospital. let’s keep lifting them up our God is able!!!
