More Progress!


After the Oshkosh Airshow, we came back to Rochester so Jon could get his socket (the fiberglass sheath that Jon’s stump rests in) remade at the prosthetic lab. His stump has shrunk quite a bit & he needs a smaller size now. It’s not unusual for the stump to change size & shape with time. We’ll pick up the new socket in 10 days & Lord willing, the Genium X-3 will have arrived for pickup as well!!

Jon’s Doctor called & his flight physical paper work has been processed & a letter sent to the FAA office saying Jon is ready for his flight test. Each step has gone quicker then we anticipated, praise God & thank you all for praying for us!!!

We came back to our sweet little guys who had a blast with Grandma while we were gone. So very thankful that they have a place that’s familiar to them to be “home,”as we are in this weird phase called medical leave/furlough. It’s a strange & sometimes unsettling feeling. I’ve had to remind myself this is temporary. Levi cried last night saying he was missing his friends in Australia & PNG. The boys have done so well during all of this & we are so grateful! But do continue to pray for us guys! Thanks!

“If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Ps139:9-10, 17)

    Praising the Lord with you! Your boys are troopers, just like mom and dad! So wanted to get to the airshow to meet you, since we are only 50 miles from Oshkosh, but just couldn’t see our way clear. But if not in this life, in the better life to come! Continuing to pray!


    PTL for so many answers to prayer. Will continue praying for all of you-
