Please Pray!!!

We found out this morning that a fellow missionary has breast cancer. Her name is Holli High and she is married to the doctor. She flew back to the States last Wednesday to have things checked out since we don’t have the resources here in Malawi. Her husband, James, and two sons, Chad and Wesley, stayed behind and she was going to return soon with their daughter, Ashley. Well, with this news, James, Chad, and Wesley are heading back to America too. Please pray that they get everything packed, they have an uneventful flight, all their luggage makes it, peace, wisdom for the doctors, etc.

We (the family of ABC) met today just to pray for Holli and her family. I couldn’t believe how many people showed up to show their love and support for this family.

Chad is (was) in my class and he is a great boy. We will miss having him with his infectious smile and his wonderful heart. He is also a wonderful student. He is always so willing and eager to learn new things and to help other classmates if they need it. Here is a picture of him on Reading Day. He was Robin Hood.

Here is another picture of him on International Day. How do you like that USM flag in the background? It was part of my costume.

This morning when he got to school he asked if he could talk to me outside. When we got outside he told me about his mom and I told him I had heard and was very sorry. He asked me if he could give his class tickets and homework passes out to everyone in the class since he would not need them. WOW!!!! At a time like this, he is thinking about his classmates and what he can do for them.

If you want to read about their adventures here in Malawi, you can go to their blog. They are a wonderful family and we will miss them dearly.

We love you James, Holli, Chad, Wesley, and Ashley and we will miss you dearly. Here is a picture of the whole family.
