"I will answer them before they even call to me.
While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!"
~ Isaiah 65:24
Please keep Bethany in your prayers this weekend. She got injured while surfing in Indonesia on a boat trip with Rip Curl.
"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you..."
~ Isaiah 43:2
On a wipeout her surfboard fin sliced her bicep, she got 10 stitches, but now has some numbness in her arm which is a bit concerning. She is on her way to Singapore to get checked out by a physician on her way home. We have appointments with physicians in Hawaii as well, whom she will see immediately when she gets home. We talked to Dr Rovinsky (Bethany's surgeon after she lost her arm) here on Kauai and he said it's likely that she cut a nerve during the incident, she may have to have surgery to repair it.
"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done."
~ Philippians 4:6
We are thankful for Rip Curl and their travel insurance company which is helping take care of changes to the travel plans and finding her proper medical attention in Asia. She will be traveling home with our dear family friend Alana, and will also be accompanied to Singapore by one of her team managers from Rip Curl, Brooke Farris. We are grateful that she is with friends who care for her like a sister!
Most of all though, we are thankful for the love and care of our Father. We know He is watching over her, and we are relying on Him completely.
"And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him."
~ 1 John 5:14
Trusting the Great Physician!
