Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

Please remember and uphold in prayer all those affected by the terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Clare still knows a lot of people there from when she worked for Oasis in Mumbai a few years ago. So far, no-one we know has been hurt but many people are still being held hostage in the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels. Please pray for a peaceful and swift resolution to that situation and for all those who have lost loved ones or been injured by this attack.

Jen's Beautiful Little Girl

Jen emailed Clare a picture of Elisabeth. She is so very cute that we thought it would be a lovely idea to post it on the blog. Jen calls Elisabeth "her peanut" and I think you'll agree that she is beautiful!

They've put together a wonderful slide show of pictures set to music and you can find it here.

Please continue to remember Jen and her husband in your prayers as they work through this difficult time.

Elisabeth Ann Matteson

Please pray for Jen and her husband who lost their daughter, Elisabeth Ann over the last weekend.

Jen contacted Clare a few months ago after the doctors picked up a skeletal displaysia at her 21-week scan. Later scans showed that that the condition was most likely lethal (Campomelic Dysplasia) and she experienced increased fluid levels at 28 weeks. A week later, she went into labour and tragically Elisabeth was only with them for 6 minutes. She was small - 2lbs 9 oz - but very precious to them and in Jennifer's words was "adorable".

Jen seems very strong in her emails but both Clare and I know how hard such times can be. They need love, support and prayer so please uphold them in your thoughts during this difficult time.

I don't think she has a blog but I know that she reads ours so please feel free to post any messages here.

Please also remember Tonya and Knoah as he undergoes MRI and CT scans and pray that the doctors would be wise and reassuring.
