THANK YOU for praying for Kevin. Please keep it up because I have not yet had the opportunity to talk to him. I stayed around all day yesterday, praying, reviewing verses and praying some more. But Kevin slept hard all day, and when he finally woke up in the late afternoon, he was very nauseous. No one saw him yesterday except hospice and his wife.  As in all things, God is in control. He knows perfect timing and He knows Kevin’s heart. He can set things up just the way He wants them to be. I will stay available. I am really praying that Kevin not die until he understands God’s love and Good News for him. From what his sister told me about their upbringing, there is a chance that Kevin has already heard and understands. Only God and Kevin know that for sure. So I’ll keep hanging around, which is easy to do since Kevin’s sister is staying at our house. I go over there every day with food and hugs. So THANK YOU, again. I’ll keep you informed.

Now, about my Kent. He is still doing fine. We have a big day today with good things. The best is the baptism of our grandson Nathan. That boy has the softest heart for God and people! It is no wonder that he has such a personal relationship with God at such a young age, and we are rejoicing to see this special event with him. It is going to be held at his other grandparents’ pool this afternoon, so it will be a real ‘family’ party. Then Kent & I are off to Norman to visit with a new start-up church.

Pray for continued strength for Kent, because we leave tomorrow for Baltimore. Our schedule as I know it is this: We travel on Monday, see Dr. Feller-Kopman (Pulmanologist) on Tuesday, have a Bronchoscopy Wednesday morning, during which the Dr. will see for himself what is going on in the airways. If necessary, there will be another procedure in the afternoon to remove or fix the stents. We really do not have enough information to even explain what may happen until the Dr. sees and talks to us. We are then supposed to see Dr. Hellmann (Rheumatologist) on Thursday morning. That may be a problem if Kent is still in the hospital from procedures the day before! So pray that we can keep that appt. Dr. Hellmann is a sweet Christian, and we have been anxious to see him again. He has seen 30 RP patients, maybe the most anyone has seen. He is the one dealing with the disease itself. (It is hard to keep appts scheduled reasonably at Johns Hopkins because there are four campuses, and our two drs are at different ones and use different people to do their scheduling.) It will work out, but pray that we won’t get stressed in the process. We love you,  and the fact that we can count on you and your prayers. You have kept us focused on the Lord and on living one day at a time, in the present with Him. It is the only way to live. Love, Davidene

    Davidene:

    I am praying that God would order your schedule while you are in Baltimore. He is the best secretary I know of and has a way of making everything run perfectly! So God, please be with Kent and Davidene and arrange their schedule in such a way that they will be able to keep the appointment with Dr. Hellman on Thursday. Thank you for putting everything in order for the Humphreys as they travel to Baltimore! In Jesus’ precious name, AMEN!

    Love you both! Debra & Scott

    Davidene…thanks you for keeping us up to date on Kent’s progress and the trip to Baltimore this week. We have a team of about 50 prayer warriors at our church and they have been and continue to lift Kent, you, and your family up to the Lord. This week your request for Kevin has also been included for our church’s prayer warrior team. Know that we love you and Kent, and you will be on our mind constantly during your marathon exams and meetings with the medical community in Baltimore this week.
