He is Risen, He is Risen indeed! We had a good but tiring Easter, with a special Song & Scripture Service in Cokeville. Please continue to pray for those in Cokeville who have heard the Gospel, especially C&J and R&R. Also, pray as the LDS church has begun meeting again and some of our regular attenders have returned to their services at the ward.
Please continue to keep Elizabeth in your prayers as she is still trying to bounce back from the infusions. Her labs are showing good results, but she continues to battle chronic fatigue along with a few other physical struggles. James continues to maintain with no real improvement.
We give praise to God for working on our behalf as the first round of determinations by the Army has been completed, and James' packet has advanced to the next level. This next phase is expected to take about 45 days. After that, it is still a minimum of 90 to 180 days before the Army completely works out the final disposition. Please pray that James will receive medical retirement at the end of this process, which would provide us with health care for the rest of our lives and a certain level of income to aid us in the work of the ministry.
Life is uncertain at times, and our world is in chaos. Yet as we look at the turmoil around us and as we experience various types of trials, let us hold fast to our faith that is rooted and grounded upon our risen Savior. Let us not live as those who have no hope - for we know that as He has risen, so we shall rise and be transformed into His everlasting perfection, for we shall see Him as He is!
