Obadiah’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your prayers and support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

On June 12, I went to the doctor to find out why I had been having pain in my hip. The doctor felt something in my abdomen and I had to have a CT scan. They found a tumor. Two days later I had surgery but they couldn't take out the tumor. They told me I have neuroblastoma cancer. I had other tests and they said the cancer was only in the tumor. I have to have a lot of chemotherapy and surgery and radiation and other stuff too. Thanks for praying for me.

How Our Hearts Yearn Within Us


23 “Oh, that my words were recorded,  that they were written on a scroll,
24 that they were inscribed with an iron tool on lead, or engraved in rock forever!
25 I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.
26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another.
   How my heart yearns within me!

We look forward to the day that we join Obi in heaven and are forever with the Lord.

Christ Is Risen!

It was good to read your message. In our church this morning, we pronounced many times, "He is risen indeed."

Yes Christ has risen indeed, and so will we. We thought about Obi and all our loved ones celebrating with our Lord today as we were reminded of the assurance of eternal life through God's word.
