Lauren with a Hindu child in India.

Yesterday morning we received our updated manuscript for final approval (from our publisher...Revell). While it was not actually in a bound book yet, the pages are all type set, the pictures added (there are many), and each page is reflected just as it will be, once bound.

We are filled with such excitement and enthusiasm to see the project nearing release. We are so pleased with the work Revell has done, and see the Lord's hand in each step of the process. We truly believe that He has been giving the direction necessary to each step of this journey, and could not be more pleased with how things look.

We cannot wait for you to see it!

If you read yesterday's comments, you will see a prayer request for the community of Mooresville, Indiana. A student who by all accounts seemed well adjusted, took his own life.

It appears that he was active not only in school, but in church. We do need to lift up his family and the community as they grieve and deal with this shocking event.

Unfortunately, for many today, suicide is just one more option in life. While it is very hard for us to understand, we need simply know that Satan continues to prowl among us, seeking those he can devour. We need to be paying attention to each need we encounter, and doing what we can to intervene.

This will not be the last event of this kind. We will mourn others. I cannot imagine the pain of a family who lose a loved one this way.

Please join me in lifting them up.

Also, one of Lauren's teammates from her India trip has been in the hospital for a couple of weeks in Oklahoma City. Doctors believe she contracted Chikungunya and West Nile Virus from mosquitoes while out of the country. Her name is Megan. She had been in tremendous pain.

She was doing better, and then had an allergic reaction to something she was given. Please pray for her quick recovery and release. She has had to withdraw from her classes at Oklahoma University.

Thank you for assembling and bombarding the Throne of Grace!
