THANKFUL




Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

The Lauer family has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Over the past eight months or so, we have experienced so much love and support from friends and family. You ALL have been amazing and we thank God for you! We have also felt the hand of our Lord every step of the way...we have a God full of Magnanimity! (that's for those of you who read Kit's blog while he was in the hospital :)

My dad is still in Oregon and doing great! His energy level has even slightly improved. We would greatly appreciate your prayers for him as he travels back home to Maui on friday. the McManus family has been so generous and upgraded my dad and Uncle Buddy to first class...we love you guys!

I already mentioned previously that my dad got to see much of my mom's family on his visit which was a huge blessing. I wanted to add that my dad got to see my Aunt Becky's mom and dad (Doug and Edie) who could use prayers over their health as well.  He was reunited with the Johnson family (from Oregon), Jon Small, the Hickmans, and the Crabtrees...who are all very dear to us and we are very thankful for all of them :-) My dad has also been cared for and loved on by Shae's family (Mikey's in-laws). They are our family now, and we love them!!
Kit had the awesome privilege of speaking
at Edgewater Church in Southern Oregon!! I know it touched his heart to be able to do that, and it also touched the hearts of the people in that congregation!
God is good :)

The last thing I want to mention is that Kit's oncologists would like him to start a new med which has a 25% chance of working and has similar side effects as chemotherapy. Basically, my dad would be taking the chance of becoming more sick with infection for a fairly small chance that it could make him better. Kit would be really grateful for your prayers on this decision...as would we!


Much Love,
Maisha

Dr/Pastor Kit,
I was very encouraged as well as so many others by your sharing at Edgewater Christian Fellowship in Grants Pass last Sunday. Your testimony is so moving and passionate for God's absolute love & glory! Dr Kit I have sent a prayer out to ALL the nations in Africa and Pakistan, may God heal you as He see's fit through His love. Your life's testimony/sowing will bring others into intimate relationship to our Father from your physical illness to their spiritual newness AMEN! Your leaving a heritage of wisdom and God.

Lord's blessings daily to you Dr Kit...

Our prayers are with you during this time that the Lord has for you. It is so nice to see the Lord working in you and the lives that you are touching. You are an encouragement to others as we all go through trials but not all of us do so with the joy of the Lord! May he continue to heal you and give peace and strength! You are a blessing to others and an inspiration. May you continue to be strong enough to do God's work.
