Hi Everyone! It has been a little while since my last update, but Paul continues to progress greatly in his recovery. 

Paul is still at Washington Hospital and has been incredibly successful on the trach collar. It is amazing the progression he has made with his breathing! We praise God for continuing to strengthen and heal Paul. In addition to doing great with his breathing, Paul works with an outstanding physical therapy team.

As we come into our 9th month since Paul's accident, it is easy to get worn down, and become impatient, but God wants us to know that He is always with us and to remind Him of His promises instead of the problem. "God Promises to give us back our health and heal our wounds." (Jeremiah 30:17) God's plan will be good and of hope. (Jeremiah 29:11). "God is not a man, he can not lie or change His mind"(Numbers 23:19). What we think is a long time, is just a second for God. This is for God's glory, and throughout this entire journey, we have met countless people and shared our story praising God for his goodness and healing for Paul. We know He will completely and totally heal him! When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He also gave us complete physical healing! Which means the deed is already done, and it IS God's Will for Paul to live a long life with complete healing and prosperity. We declare that we will see God's will and Promise for Paul manifest in his body. Nothing is too hard for God. "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible!"(Matthew 19:26). God's Word created the heavens and earth, therefore His Word is True, It's Alive, and He is forever faithful to it!

As you pray for Paul's complete and total healing, here are some specific prayers. 

1. That Paul avoids fevers and future infections in his body.

2. Continues to show alertness & clarity in his mind. Paul has shown tremendous increased movement in his body, so we pray that he continues to gain strength and endurance to move forward. 

3. That Paul gets the strength to cough on his own, and to get off trach collar.


Thank you Everybody and God Bless!
