Sturge Weber Conference

On Thursday, July 21, Lawrence and I will be attending a Sturge Weber Conference in Hershey, PA. The conference will give us an opportunity to meet other SWS families, grow more acquainted with the SWS community, and hear from some of the leading professionals researching and treating SWS. Judah and Tucker will join us on Thursday to meet some other families, but will stay with my parents on Friday and Saturday, providing a little more flexibility for Lawrence and I to gain all we can from this conference.

I can't say that I'm thrilled about going to the conference, but I am grateful for this resource. And, I do feel that God has called us to be there this year both to learn and to open ourselves up to the ways He may want to use us in the SWS community.

Please pray that:
  • We will grow not only in knowledge but also in wisdom about our son's syndrome in order to effectively serve him now and in the future.
  • We will respond with gratefulness for the many mercies we have experienced with Judah, especially as we are confronted with others' experiences who may be much more trying than our own.
  • We will respond with faith rather than fear as we may be confronted with all the ways this syndrome may affect Judah's life in the future.
  • We will be ambassadors of Christ, faithfully representing our good and merciful God who hears and answers our prayers.

Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and encouragement! We are continually blessed and assured by others' petitions on our behalf.

I will definitely be praying. God is already at the conference and He is coming to guide you and Lawerence through it. Find strength in knowing that "the power that raised Christ from the dead, is the power that is in us."
