Some updates

Sorry, life has been chaos here (so what is new, right??), but I finally have a few minutes of free time to update you on our prayer requests. I spent the day yesterday at the kids' school for their fundraiser, the Victory Run. Each Prachar kid ran a 5 K yesterday! Even Alayna finished all of her laps in the allotted time! I was so sad that I was not able to run with any of them. My calf is feeling MUCH better and I am able to walk without a limp! YEAH! It will still hurt if I forget and try to pick up the pace any faster than a walk, but I am definitely on the mend. Just about 4 more weeks of rest and I will be back to running and all other activities!

Agape's plane remains in Northern Bahamas. We are looking for a replacement engine. When one is obtained, the mechanics will be flown down to put it in so Grace (Harvey named the airplane...he didn't know she would require so much grace so quickly!!) can be brought back home to Florida. Harvey is the mechanic for Grace and had to fly to Miami yesterday to get an expedited passport so he can make the trip! I understand that this has been accomplished. All of the cargo has been delivered to the appropriate places and the pilots and Birdie (Camden's bear) are all back. I was blessed to be able to spend the afternoon after MOPS on Thursday with Kate and Crystal (Crystal's husband was one of the pilots) and see for myself that she was at peace with what happened and was doing well waiting for Jeff to come home just a day late.

Officer Tim Davis is starting to squeeze loved one's hands. His condition is still guarded and the doctors are not painting optimistic pictures, so keep praying. His wife is at his bedside and their support is strong. All of the three suspects are in custody, so Paul's mood is much improved. We appreciated your thoughts and prayers for him when this took place.

It also looks like little Stellan is doing much better as well! Prayer really does change things! What a privilege to carry every thing to God in prayer (to quote an old hymn)!

Thank you for the wonderful news and updates on things. "Grace" is a perfect name for the new plane, thanks Harvey. God is so good and we know that he's never late, so we just keep praying and praying that all turns out according to His will. Hurray for all four kids and the 5k walks, wow. You take care Travis and don't rush things with your injured calf muscle. We love you all and continue to pray for all concerns that you share. Thank you for the frequent updates.
