Prayer Request and Update: Mickey G. and Jessica S.

First, I'm asking for prayer for Mickey G., my friend Naomi's beautiful three year old (and big sister to sweetie Abigail) who was hospitalized overnight after being sick for the past week with a mean bug. She's doing better this morning, but we want her well and home as soon as possible!


Second, an update on Jessica S., my buddy living in Bangledesh who has been in the intensive care unit and on life support due to a massive infection in her respiratory system. Great news is, she's off the beathing machine, and intubation is over! As you can see in the picture above, she's doing so much better, and is even smiling! Next to her is Wafi, her husband, who's been a trooper through all of this. She's not out of the woods yet, so keep up the prayers, and if possible donate to their Go Fund Me. The total raised so far is $4,405.00 out of the $10,000.00 needed, so please consider giving.

"... the awesomely gifted Alisha DeFreitas... tells her story of  her brush with the Culture of Death and her refusal to play the world’s game. I love that she gives two well-aimed upraised middle fingers: one to the abortion culture of the Left, and one to the Randian Makers vs. Takers class warriors of the Right. She’s one of my heros."

"While reading your blog I often sense a certain amount of conviction on your behalf, which makes me wonder why isn’t everyone reading the blogs of a woman who actually “gets it.”
