Chicken Pox?!??!! And we leave for Africa in 2.5 weeks!!!

Okay y'all...we REALLY need y'all's prayers! My wise husband has reminded me that we believe God's will was for our two daughters to go on this missions trip so He will take care of the situation, but we still need prayers.

It appears that our 9 yos has chicken pox. None of my kids have ever had it before and they've not been immunized for chicken pox. Please pray that either the 2 oldest girls will either go ahead and get the pox and get them over with OR they just won't come down with them at all. They've been exposed big time in the past and never came down with them so our nurse practitioner friend thinks they may have dev'pd a natural immunity.

Who knows. Regardless, we need them to be well and ready to travel in 2.5 weeks.

PLEASE pray for this situation.And pray that the girls and I will learn to trust God more and more as we face this situation that has the potential to really stress me out. I know that God is bigger than chicken pox and this situation comes as no surprise to Him. I know that He is in control...I just need to keep resting in that. ALL things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). We do love Him and we do believe that we're called according to His purpose. So now I need to just pray and trust and sit back while God shines!

Thanks in advance for your prayers,
Elysa

Thanks for commenting on my site. I really admire that you are going to offer support & love to victims of HIV/AIDS. Living with a family member who is afflicted with HIV, I know how rough it can be on them, and that they need all of the support that they can get!

Wishing a speedy recovery on the chicken pox scene. I will keep you guys in my thoughts, with the hopes that you are all able to go on your trip!
