Final update on Nathan and Melanie’s Unborn Child Prayer Request

We needed to let you know that God has chosen to take this child home. We are left with many questions, most of which begin with “Why…” or “What if…” In time we hope to have some answers, but there are still many unknowns that we need to trust Him for – unknowns that will always be unknowns. It is amazing the hopes and dreams you can have for a little life even after just a few weeks.

Abigail is all the more precious to us, a little energetic bundle of joy. Last night we took her shopping for a new doll. We had planned on getting her one the past few weeks. Last night’s outing was the fulfillment of that unspoken promise, based on a hope that she will be a big sister some day. She was bouncing up and down in my arms as we perused the aisle selecting just the right one.

Once again, our evening Bible time closing hymn challenged us, particularly the fourth verse:

Soldiers of Christ, Arise

Leave no unguarded place, no weakness of the soul,
Take every virtue, every grace, and fortify the whole;
From strength to strength to on, Wrestle and fight and prayer
Tread all the powers of darkness down and win the well fought day.

Thank you for your loving prayer support.


“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

  1. Psalm 116:15 says “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” For those of us who have little ones waiting on us in heaven, it is painful. However, it has certainly given us eternal perspective and changed how we live life here on earth. May God comfort you during this time, and may His blessing be poured out on your lives!
