Another good night, and prayer chain extended

Kanyon did great again last night - still breathing and digesting well, so praise God for that.

I just found out that the prayer chain website for the Phillips is going to have slots to sign up extended through next week, so follow this link and sign up for a time if you would like to. When you scroll down to the sign-up part, be sure to scroll to the right to see the new days. I know it gives Kory and Jaymie great comfort knowing that they are covered in prayer 24 hours a day.

The memorial service will be at 3:30 on Sunday in Paris, so remember to lift them up especially during that time.

Precious ones,
I have been lifting you all up continually. I am in awe of just how many other prayers God is hearing about you guys! What an amazing testament to what happens when God's people pray! Please know my love and support are with you! In my prayer time last night I even lifted up a chorus of "Savior breathe an evening blessing" - I know he is blessing you even when this is so hard!

Love to you all- Kerry Beth

For Rachel-Thank you for keeping us all updated!

I'm excited to see such good news about Kanyon. Praise God for the progress made so far. Kanyon is such a little fighter, and I know that one day God will use him as a testimony. I can't wait to see the plan God has for this precious boy. I will continue praying for Kanyons health and progress.

I saw on the Prayer Chain website it mentioned something about fasting, and that is something I have honestly never considered before, but I've decided to give it a try. For the next 3 days, I will not only be praying for the Phillips phamily, but will be fasting as well.

God bless you Jaymie and Kory. Stay strong and know that we all are here for you...

Your brother in Christ,
Drew Nelson

I couldn't see the map too well but I want you to know that you can color in Mexico City, Mexico and Oxford, England! Scotty is in Mexico and I have many ACU friends in Oxford and I know that they all have lifted many prayers on your behalf! I've been reading the updates and I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to comment but I felt like if I waited long enough I could somehow find the right words to say. I find myself thinking of you guys more and more everyday and I want you to know that each time you cross my mind a little prayer goes up! Precious Kanyon has so much in store for him and I can't wait to meet him! Thanks to the Spencers, there's been a lot more baby attire in the CDR Gift Shop lately! The prayers will continue for Kanyon and for all who surround him! Love y'all!

Im glad to hear my little cuz is doing better!! Its because he wants to meet me when I get back to the USA in May! I like the idea of a US map to color in the states...but I have a request. Get a South American map and color in Uruguay, because you not only have 20 Americans in Uruguay praying, but also several Uruguayans!

Love ya,

So glad to hear that Kanyon is still doing good! Great to get some good news in my hourly check of the website! Still praying for you guys from Bogata, Texas and passing on the prayers we have coming in from friends in Australia, Illinois, Germany and Maine! We are passing on the prayer requests to everyone to keep little Kanyon strong! We hope your entire family feels our loving arms around you tomorrow as you go through the services for sweet little Jayde! We love you!

We heard about your sweet family from some friends in TX and just wanted you all to know we will be praying for you. What a fragile time and yet...there is so much hope for Kanyon. I pray the Great Healer will strengthen him quickly.

Dear Jaymie and Kory,

This is Daniel and Melanie Jones in Gainesville, FL. We are both at a loss for words for you two right now. We are so sorry for the loss of sweet baby girl Jayde. We are praying for you and your family. Daniel says he feels like it's his family since he has known your family for so long and loves you all so much. Please know that God is hearing from us on your behalf.


Daniel, Melanie and Daisy Jones

May God and all the prayers lifted up comfort you all Sunday. There are no words to express how most of
us feel and most of us can not imagine how you all feel. We are so sorry and will continue to pray.

We will also continue to pray for precious Kanyon. I am sure there is a beautiful angel named Jayde by his side.

We love you!

Jennifer K said...

We are praying that you feel God's arms around you. May you feel the love that is being poured out.

Brandynn said...

We've been thinking about you and praying for you as well. My husband is a cousin of Matt Pinson, and Christine's mom linked to your site from her blog.

This may be a trivial question, but could you tell me how Jayde's name is pronounced? Is it said Jaydie, like Jamie, or is it simply like Jade? With my name being Brandynn (Bran-den), subject to numerous mispronunciations, I'm a bit sensitive about that and I truly want to be saying her name correctly when praying for your sweet family.

The outpouring of love and support surrounding you guys is astounding. May the Lord bless you in ways only He can do.

All our love,

Way to go Kanyon on the weight gain!! We continue to lift you all up in prayer!!

Jodi said...

Since I am the first to comment after Brandynn, I'll just answer that her name is pronounced "Jade", all one syllable. :) Like a gem. :)

I can't go more than an hour without checking your blog. And I can't go more than 5 minutes without praying for you guys! We'll especially be on our knees at 3:30 tomorrow for your whole sweet family. I keep picturing who all will be there, the setting you'll be in, and how angels will be with you as your honor precious Jayde... and it makes me smile through tears. Love you guys... and I'll be back in a few minutes I'm sure. :)

Put Friendswood, TX on the map for sure! :)

We have been checking the site almost hourly and are always interested in hearing what's going on. We had a child born at about the same time, 25 weeks. When she was born, she weighed almost the same, 1lb 10 oz. We have been praying for the little ones and now for Kanyon as well. To see that he is feeding on milk is absolutely amazing! Maya started drinking milk though the feeding tube only at 29 weeks so Kanyon is way ahead of our daughter.

We are friends of Jodi's and have been through what you are going through. I believe God had us go through what we did so that we can minister to people who are going through this in a way that ohters many not be able to understand. If you ever want to talk, day or night, 24 hours a day, please ask Jodi for our info and call us. We are praying for you and are ready to chat at any time day or night to help you guys get through this...

And keep us in the loop, people are living on this blog!!! :)
