Illyana: Little Brave Heart!

For those of you who prayed: Thank you!! Illyana survived her surgery and is resting well. She will need two more surgeries over the next few months, so whenever the Lord brings her to your mind, please continue to pray for her.

Here is something her mother shared just before the surgery: “By way of encouragement let me share the story of Evelyn’s dream. (Evelyn is Casey and Luisa’s four-year-old daughter.)  Last summer when Luisa was already pregnant for Illyana, Evelyn told her mom one morning that she had a dream that night. Jesus came down and cut open her chest and fixed her heart she said. We all remember this story, and at the time were a bit concerned about Evelyn, but then decided it had to do with having Jesus come into her heart perhaps. Then we didn’t worry. Now I find it comforting, because Jesus will be right there with the doctors and nurses and staff, fixing her heart. Her heart is literally in His hands. He is also our great physician. … Then this morning the Lord gave us these verses: Psalm 28:6 “Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. 7. The Lord is my strength and my shield and my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. 8. The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. 9. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.”

“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3)

Praise God, and bless his name forever!

  1. What a blessing that the Lord prepared the way in advance to comfort Illyana’s family in the midst of the surgery He knew would soon happen. We were so happy to hear that Illyana’s surgery went well, and we will continue to pray for her.

  2. We are so pleased that the baby is recovering from the surgery. May God continue to bless and protect her!
