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.

Scholarship

The Obadiah Christenson "Servant of the Lord" Scholarship has been set up. We named it as such because Obadiah means "servant of the Lord" and Obi very much was that servant and because Obi wanted to grow up and serve the Lord as a Christian husband and father as well as to serve as a pastor. Knowing this, we thought it most appropriate to help others who want to be pastors and teachers in the name of Obi, to the spread of the Gospel and to the glory of the Lord. Thank you to everyone who gave memorials for this scholarship fund. With those generous gifts, the fund is now set up to pay a yearly scholarship from this year on and until the Lord returns. Thank you.

What a neat thing to do! Even though Obi was very young, he was indeed a servant of the Lord. Also a very cute picture of Obi! Prayers continue for your family.
