Update and Prayer Request for Emmie Sederquist
Your prayers are effective!
Over the summer we have been watching our granddaughter Emmie's blood test numbers get better and better. As of last week, most are in the normal range, the few that are not, are only slightly elevated, certainly not "off the wall" as they have been in the last six years. Her physical examination joint inflammation is mostly not existent. Please pray that these miraculous trends continue.
We believe that God has healed Emmie and our prayers are that He would reveal the reality of that healing each month. He is answering that prayer.
Please continue to pray that God would fully reveal His healing by:
1. Successful reduction of her remaining steroids. So far, they have been reduced by 50%. Only being steroid free will indicate healing.
2. Elimination of the SJIA (Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) drug she is taking. We really need wisdom here because the medical community is going to suggest that it is the SJIA drug that is providing the results she is experiencing. Only the successful elimination would prove healing.
3. Physical growth. Emmie has not grown for 4 years because of the steroids. She is currently 8 years old. With the 50% reduction, she has recently shown miniscule growth; which is better than negative growth she had been experiencing due to spinal fractures from long term steroid use. Please pray that her physical growth will continue.
4. Pray that our entire family would walk faithfully into the miracle that God has provided.

My mother and I are in the process of planning to move back to my hometown of Richmond, IN due to family concerns. Prayers are appreciated in the transition and moving process and in finalizing arrangements for an apartment. Thank you so much!

Our oldest daughter, Ellie, continues to have frequent focal seizures. They have been rather short in duration, which is a praise. Her neurologist is having us start a new daily medication today, in addition to the medication she already takes. We pray that she does not have any side effects to the new medicine. And of course we pray that the number of seizures will decrease, but lately, I have been praying that I continue to see the Lord guiding us during the valleys that come with raising a kiddo who has a lifelong medical disorder.

Would so appreciate your prayers as we begin year 6 of our Grad Music Bible Study in the UIUC School of Music. This department can be quite isolating and lonely for grad students, and it's the hope of this group to plant and cultivate the love of Christ in our school, and the classical music profession at large. Having graduated in May, I've stepped down from leadership, but will still be actively involved. Would you join me in praying for our Bible study? Specifically for clarity as we transition leadership, for new relationships, and for the hope of the Gospel to be at the center of our fellowship.

Praise God! My brother Akira was discharged from the nursing home where he was for the last two months and is back in his condo. He still has long road of rehab and recovery to return to his normal lifestyle after his spinal fusion surgery, but at least he can do so in the familiarity and comfort of his home. Please continue to pray for him to see God's hand in all this and turn to Him. Thank you!
