Good afternoon! This morning has gone well. Throughout the night, BJ's oxygen levels remained in the high 80s, even hitting 90% a few times. This morning they have turned down the ventilator to 65% (from 90%... the higher the percentage and the longer it goes, the more it damages his lungs) and his oxygen level remains around 85%. The doctors did begin giving him constant platelettes (the ecmo destroys them), but they have been able to stop that now. We are praising God for the encouragement, but remembering that He is still being faithful no matter the situation.

"Therefore, since Christ suffered in His body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God." 1 Peter 4:1-2

Hi!
My name is Sarah and I don't know BJ very well. I went to Thailand this summer with AweStar and I met BJ at training and debriefing in Dallas. The short time that we were in Dallas, I came to realize that BJ is an amazing man of God. I wanted to say that you have me here in Louisiana praying for BJ and I know that every prayer makes a difference. Know that God is bigger than all things and this is in His hands. He will receive the glory and of that I am confident! I'm also praying for the family. Know that the God of rest, peace, and comfort is with you always.
His,
Sarah Landry

i have been in constant prayer since i heard about bj. i know the Lord has all control and all authority, and that His will must be done for all of His glory. i know that bj would want nothing else than for us to be prasing our wonderful maker for all that He is and all He has done. i served in Peru with bj last summer and in Thailand this summer with Awe Star. he is my brother and dear friend. and i know that the Lord will be blessed through this. great is our God and so worthy of all our praise. bj you are in my prayers and i know you are a solider and you will fight for the Lord all the days you are given on this earth. be strong. with so much love in the purest of ways, through Christ.

Mi Nombre es Tito y estoy muy triste por lo que esta pasando BJ, he trabajado con el en Peru y fue muy bueno su trabajo para el Señor. Oro para que se recupere pronto y siga dando de su vida para el Señor. Tenemos un Dios maravilloso y su especialidad es hacer milagros.

I am continually praying for BJ. He is being so strong. He has touched my life in many ways, more than anyone will ever know. The God has used him for many things, Once again God is using BJ again to minister to others and bring people together to pray. I am praying for BJ!
