For the past three years I have been a member of a Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group. I have met some incredible faith filled women, including my friend Amanda. She comes from a wonderful family who have been blessed with the gift of being able to express themselves beautifully when they speak and pray.
Amanda, her mother and her sister have all spoken to our group of moms and each of their stories about their lives, parenting and faith have been moving and inspiring. I have learned so much from Amanda and it breaks my heart to know how much she and her family are hurting right now.
Amanda’s dear husband Ray has serious heart problems and has been in the hospital for a while recovering from surgery. The most recent update I received shared that Ray is sedated and on a ventilator while his body tries to fight a bacterial infection. This has been an extremely difficult time for Ray, Amanda, their three children, their extended families and all those who love and care about them.
I am writing this to ask that you lift up your hearts and send healing thoughts and prayers to Ray, Amanda, their children, their extended families, friends and especially all of the medical professionals who are trying to save Ray’s life.
If you want to follow Ray’s journey you can join this Facebook group where his family and close friends post medical updates.
If you want a tangible way to support Ray’s family, besides holding them close in your thoughts and prayers, please consider making a donation here.
Thank you so much.
