Pray for Foard


Last week Foard developed some spots on his face that eventually spread. After a couple of trips to the doctor, we took him yesterday to the hospital. He’s been admitted and is being treated for a viral infection. They told us they plan to keep him 3 days. The doctors believe he’s doing well, and the skin problems don’t look any worse, which hopefully means it will look better soon.

Please pray for all of us. Of course pray first of all that God would heal Foard completely, that the medicine would work perfectly, and that the doctors will have wisdom to diagnose and treat him. Pray also for us: for Melissa as she stays with him in the hospital, for me as I try to coordinate everything, and for Sam as everything is different. We are scared and weary, but know that none of this takes our Father by surprise. He knew we would be here when Foard had this rare condition, and that we would have to navigate the hospital so early in our Prague life.

Foard’s first name, Malachi, comes from the Bible book of the same name, and the verse we sometimes pray for him is Malachi 4:2, “But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings.” Please pray that God will rise and fight for Foard, bringing healing in his wings.

  1. Praying for sweet Foard and the Hunt family in Dallas!Love, Graham and Alyson Averitt

  2. This is your friendly WHM blog-prowling pediatrician who wants more details than "viral infection" … and your sympathetic WHM fellow-mom who knows what it's like to have a child in a foreign hospital. Read Mark 9: Lord I believe, help my unbelief. It never stops: 7 months, 7 years, or 17 years. The good news is that Jesus goes out of his way to heal in spite of our modicums of belief. Jennifer

  3. Praying for you…wisdom, healing, peace, provision. So glad you guys belong to the Lord.

  4. We are praying, too. Foard is making the rounds on the Trinity prayer chain (my mom emailed me yesterday about him). Keep us updated!
