please pray for emi

i got a call a couple of hours ago, emily has hurt her leg.
at this point without an xray they don't know if she has a fracture or a just a sprain.

they are currently up in the mountains in yungay.
the chaperone , who i trust completely, feels it isn't safe to travel with her during the night to get her to a hospital. he has assured me if he felt it were an emergency or she was in extreme pain they'd do it. but for tonight, he feels it's best to watch her.
they want to treat her with some heavy duty pain meds tonight and wait to get her to huarez in the morning. they do have a nurse on the trip that is with her now.
( gosh, i think i have the towns correct. forgive me if i misspell)

i was able to talk to her for a moment before i was too emotional and had to pass the phone off to dan.
i know she's frightened , maybe that more than anything. i don't know...

but please pray for her

1. that she be comforted tonight and be able to sleep and not full of anxiety or pain.
2. that she does not have a broken leg.
3. that the team will continue to have wisdom
4. that the hospital tomorrow will be able to give us a good diagnosis.
5. that she'll be able to finish her trip, healthy

the thought of my child being hurt, in another country
has me so afraid and worried for her....


thank you....i am blessed to have this venue to send out a mass prayer request.
i thank you in advance for covering her in prayers.
i will update as soon as i know more.

hopefully we can skype her later tonight...

Paige, I have sent my prayers up and will continue to do so. Several years ago Maddie was attacked by a pit bull on her face while visiting her father and I recall vividly the feeling of helplessness I felt being in Miami while she was in Atlanta. Your situation is much different but I the helplessness is very similar I think. I hope your girl will be just fine and that you also find comfort while you wait.

Lifting Miss Emi & your family up. Father...you're not surprised by this...you knew before Emi left what she would face...I ask that you'll be her comfort this evening and her strength. I pray you'll bring super natural healing to her leg. You are our Great Physician & I pray you'll work a miracle in her body....she is there to be Your hands & feet...I pray You'll continue to use her. I pray you'll use this as a witness to reach many who may not know you.

I lift up Paige & Dan...Father...bring them comfort and peace during this time...I pray they'll look to You to get through the moments of the unknown.

I pray rest for Emi, Paige, Dan & the girls...We love You and trust You...Emi is Your child and we know You'll take care of her.

Thank You Lord for an opportunity for growth, seeing You and learning more about You in the hard times.

In Jesus name I pray...Amen

Paige,

Dear one,
I so understand your worry of not being able to be with your daughter now. This happened twice to my son while away on church trips and I was just beside myself. First time he broke his ankle and second time he sprained it. His youth minister was with him both times and took such good care of him. Thankfully she is in good hands now with those who will take good care of her too.

I will be praying for dear Emi and for your peace of mind.

Hugs,
Debbie L.

Bethanie said...

Praying for Emi Paige...the Lord is watching over her...remember her name is written on the palm of HIS hand. She is there doing service for Him. We dont know why this happened, but she is in HIS hands. Praying for you friend, as well as Emi. I know until you hear from them again that you will be a mess...just remember He loves her even more than you do. Hard to fathom, huh? Will be anxiously waiting for an update. Blessings and prayers.
