Mom Update

Finally, I have an update to give you on Mom... Saturday, Mom and Dad went to the AU game. Mom had put her purse in a closet during the game, and randomly decided to go get her purse. Mom isn't the type to reapply lipstick, so this desire to get her purse was not normal :) At the same time in Savannah, GA Gene Hall was praying for Mom on his back porch, when God told him to go and call Becky. So, just as Mom was opening the closet door, her phone began to ring. Isn't it sweet how God provides us with little signs that He is at work!

Gene said that God had placed the weekends of November 10th or December 1st on his heart. He asked that we pray for God's anointing and word to increase on him.

Another area we really need prayer for is spiritual warfare/attack. Ever since talking to Gene, it seems that Mom's pain has become worse and fear/doubt seem to be lurking around the corner. Satan is so cunning, and he knows just where our insecurities lie. Mom told Gene about the pain and her fears. He told her that it was just evidence that God was about to do a mighty work, and Satan was fighting against it.

So, pray for Mom to resist the temptation to succumb to fear and doubt. I'd also appreciate a prayer for our family. It hurts so bad to see her in pain. She is still such a positive light to us all, but I know it gets harder every day.

Sweet Abby,
We are praying so hard for your mom and your family.Your mom and I laughed the other day about rebuking Satan when our thoughts go crazy. I told her I need to get one of those ear phones so people will think I am on the phone and not talking to myself in the car whenthese bad thoughts take my mind captive. I know Jesus is going to be the victory in this healing. Keep believing. Mrs. Robin
