The Leedahls Update – Jan. 3, 2015

I am SO tired, but I had a wonderfully exciting day snorkeling out on the Great Barrier Reef thanks to my sister Rebekah Pizana!! What an adventure of a lifetime! The catamaran was wheelchair accessible & Jon got to sit comfortably in an A/C cabin after getting a good chance to eat at the buffet, look all around & check out the fish swimming right up to the boat & have good chats with everyone who took turns sitting with him.

How exciting to have Michelle Thompson & Steven Thompson at the hospital when we got the news of Jon’s discharge!! We are forever grateful to the Thompson’s for all that they have done for us!!!! ( they baby-sat today so we could enjoy the snorkel trip with Rebekah & Jonie Mellinger & Jason Mellinger)

So thankful for God’s provision all along the way. And even giving us memory-making moments to enjoy all along the way!!! Thank you, God; you’re such an intimate God who knows our thoughts and hearts’ desires!

“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:9-13, 34)

    Thank you for your faithful posts…whether you know it or not you are such a blessing and encouragement to my heart. Praying for God’s divine love to overshadow any doubts or fears that try to come. When I lost my oldest son (49 yrs.) in March of 2014 I knew God was trying me for something better. As I said at my son’s celebration of life, I was so thankful that God had given my son to me for those years and I was so sad that he would no longer be in my life here on earth but I know God’s ways are not my ways and my ways are not God’s…we have the blessed hope of knowing that someday we will all be together soon. May your hearts stay encouraged as you place all your trust in our wonderful Savior who knows every hair on our heads. Nothing is too big for HIM!!! Sending you lots of prayers and love, Bev

    So glad you are getting to enjoy each other and friends. So nice to see Jon out of the hospital and having some fun. I continue to pray for Jon’s recovery and that all goes well. May the Lord continue to bless you all. You’re a great inspiration.

  6. Hi Jon and Adie,

    That is an amazing trip out to the GB Reef. I am delighted that you were able to have such a getaway. The reef is an incredible example of God’s creation, isn’t it?

    And what a wonderful Christmas present, to have Jon home. So very exciting.

    May the LORD continue to richly bless you.

    Dear Jon and Adie,

    Thank you for sending your updates. Our names are Ross and Heather Campbell…email and we live here in Cairns.

    We attend the Cairns Community Church, the same as Ole and Wilsy Ottosen. We have been praying for you but have never met you in person.

    I’m not sure if you have access to hearing preaching on DVD, or Christian Television, but Heather and I do have Christian Satelite Television and can make available for you programs on dvd. If you like, I can let you have Ministry by Dr David Jeremiah, Dr Adrian Rogers, Dr Charles Stanley.

    Please let me know, and we are happy to run these off and to call to your place to let you be blessed with these Men of God. Also, are you Gaither Homecoming fans?

    Looking forward to meeting you.
