Still Waiting

Below is a small update from Amanda and Jacob about Noah

To all, First of all, we would just like to take a moment to thank you all so very much for all of your prayers and thoughts. We tell you the truth when we feel your prayers through the peace and hope that God is giving us on a daily basis. God remains good.

We are still expecting results from the blood work being done for Noah. They are testing him specifically for "Tay Sachs." Hopefully we will have the results by next Monday. This is just a small update. Otherwise Noah is doing great. He turned one last Friday, and we had a huge party for him on Saturday. Our little boy has touched the hearts of many. He is so sweet! Please continue to pray for his healing. Adah is doing great. She is still in school until July 3. Last Thursday she had her first school program. She had a blast, and as far as her family is concerned she outshined everyone else! And to think, we thought she was going to be too shy! We love you all, Amanda and Jacob Henderson

Prayer Request:

  • Continue to please pray for Noah and his family (the Hendersons and the Moores)
  • That God continues to give us all his strenght and courage to face whatever may come concerning Noah
  • For Billy's healing and recovery
  • For Andrew and to enter S.I.B.I. in the Fall, also their strength, courage and endurance
  • For Brian, Amberlee, and the kids as they also deal with all that is happening in our lives...strength, courage, and endurance
  • For the Vision in Mexico City and the Pacific Coast
  • For my continued steadfastness in my faith and courage, to seek God's will in all that I think and do
  • For friends and family to continue their monetary support...I am still useful in the kingdom and needed in Lazaro Cardeans

We thank each of you for your prayers and love. Who can understand why things happen the way they do? Someone told us today that there were only 16 cases of "Tay Sachs" reported last year in the United States. It is virtually unheard of in Mexico. Who can understand it?

Blessings to all, Belinda

Hey Belinda,
I'm so glad you were able to go up to the Pink House to spend that time with Jacob and Amanda and the kids for Noah's 1st birthday! How wonderful and special. He is such a cutie, so is his sister! It was neat for me to see the faces of such precious people that I have come to know and hold close to my heart. I miss Mexico, to be quite honest... and the church there. I remember all of you in prayer, and thank the Lord (in advance) that I will (hopefully) be down again next February to see everyone (with AIM, if it works out for us to come.

I love you lots, and thank the Lord for your influence and dedication to that place and to God's working in (and through) your life!

Love, Jessica

My heart aches with you over your concern for precious Noah.

What an honor to get to pray with you and for you, for Billy, and for your fantastic family! Know that many whose names you do not even know are calling your name out to our Father. Walk in the confidence of The One we pray to...may you feel His strength, His peace and hear Him speak His words of encouragement deep in your spirit.

You are a treasure!

Please forgive me for not responding sooner to your phone call. We were out of town a few days, and then we tried calling you on the number on caller ID, and that did not work, or no answer, and I did not have your email address either, anyway, you have been in our thoughts and prayers, including little Noah.
We will be continuing our support. We committed to a year, and that is what we will do.
We wish you all the best as you continue to serve the Lord. I Know you are still very useful in the Lord's kingdom.
Hang in there,
and we love you and your family.
Lynn & Celia

Dear Belinda,
You have been given a gift from God to communicate "real" feelings. Your words speak deeply to my heart. I feel your pain, uncertainty, faith, hope, dismay and many more feelings that come through your honest transparency. Thank you for allowing God to work in and through you. You are the epitome of II Cor.1:3-5. Please allow me to quote it for your encouragement and those you bless each day.
(What a wonderful God we have—he is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardships and trials. And why does he do this? So that when other are troubled, needing our sympathy and encouragement, we can pass on to them this same help and comfort God has given us. You can be sure that the more we undergo sufferings for Christ, the more he will shower us with His comfort and encouragement.)
This is my prayer for you; “that you will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love, and that you will have the rich experience of knowing Christ with real certainty and clear understanding. For God’s secret plan, now at last made known, is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all the mighty untapped treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col. 2:2-3”

I want to thank each of you who have written from the bottom of my heart. The only thing that I know today is that God is good and He is in control.
You have all encouraged us (Jacob, Amanda and myself to stay the course and let God work).
much love Belinda
