A little help from our friends...

Hi guys-

Just writing a quick post to ask for some prayers to be sent up, if ya don't mind!

I've been sick since we left...still battling this nasty cold and it's not done yet.

Rush and Jonah both started in with some coughing and congestion yesterday.

Tonight, about 2am, Jonah woke up unable to stop coughing and catch his breath. He was very upset. It was very barky/croupy so I ran him outside into the cool air which helped a little bit. We came back in and I gave him some medicine. Also, I just so happened to have an Albuterol inhaler, and was willing to try whatever I could find at that point, so I fashioned a spacer out of an empty water bottle and duct tape....I know my nurse friends will love that one. :) I think it helped some because now he is sleeping comfortably.

Anyway, we are kind of over these germs that have been plaguing this trip. This afternoon, we get Jude and I just want us to be able to give him all that he needs, minus a bunch of illness.

If you get a minute, could you please just pray for our health? We would really appreciate it, from the other side of the world!!

And for everyone who made fun of my "pharmacy" I brought along...well, I'm taking this opportunity to say, "Told ya!!" :)


  1. thoughts and prayers for you and the family Jenn! Hope everyone is feeling better quickly!

  2. Oh no! Praying for you all to kick it right now.

  3. Praying for health for you and your family! God bless you as you prepare for your Gotcha moment! Prayers ascending!

  4. Praying for you all! Gotta love the resourcefulness of a nurse! Homemade spacer works as well as the "fancy" kind! Can't wait to hear about Jude!

  5. Hope that you all feel much better. What a great mom you are--always prepared. ! Can't wait to see pics of your newest little guy!

  6. Father, please bless Jennifer, Rush & Jonah as they continue going about your business. We ask you as Jehovah Rapha to pour your healing blessings on them. Strengthen them in body and in spirit. Give them peace and rest. Let them feel a special annointing of your love that can only fall from your Holy Spirit. Cleanse them as they go into the world and gather up their new son and protect Jude from any illness. As they see their new son and brother tomorrow, grant a special peace on Jude and help him have a smooth transition into the loving arms of this wonderful family, his family and yours. Give them safe travels as they continue their journey through China and back home. We don't make these requests as demands of you, but come humbly before you as your children and ask these things in the precious name of Jesus. Thanks and praise to your Holy name.

  7. The Flints are lifting up prayers as we speak for you all! We are very excited for your family and enjoying your inspiring posts! Blessings to you for quick recoveries and especially for your first meeting with Jude in a few hours!

  8. Hey sweetie - prayers for you and see you in GZ xxxx
