Pray for Robie

Since I left my family on September 15, a tornado of trials touched down in the Dodson household. I write this from Malaysia, eager to get on the plane which departs tomorrow night for Boston. Over the past three weeks Robie's severe cold turned into walking pneumonia, a biopsy came back as "melanoma suspicious," and, just yesterday, she was informed that there is a "lemon-sized cist" in her body. In addition, she has been caring for our one-year old son, Owen, and carrying our second trimester daughter. Owen has also made trips to the emergency room amidst sickness and difficulty in breathing. On Tuesday, the day after I return, Robie and I will be in Boston for tests regarding the cist. We desparately desire your prayers. This is, no doubt, a time of testing and faith-strengthening in the greatness and goodness of God and a reminder of this curse-ridden, Satan-oppressed world.

All of this comes at a tenuous time of life, a time of transition into churchplanting, a time of family relocation, a time of uncertainty. Nevertheless, we will sing of the lovingkindness of God forever, we will proclaim his faithfulness to generations, beginning with our son. Pray for strength and focused hope in the Lord who works all things together for our everlasting good. In advance, thank you.
