An Update on Kevin

Dear Friends - Kevin is still in critical condition and he needs all the prayers he can get. He has pneumonia and is running a fever. His body is trying hard to breath over the ventilator, which does not let him rest as much as he should in order to heal from the pneumonia. The ICU staff working with him are so wonderful - they do such a good job in loving him, even though they do not even know him and it is their 'job'.

Life is messy - it is not always pretty and it is not always easy. It is difficult when we are faced with a crisis. The difficulty is in knowing how to respond. How do we best help Kevin? The Church teaches us that Kevin is an intrinsically valuable person. He deserves to be treated, to be comforted, to be fed, even though he cannot respond to us. Kevin is made, like the rest of us, in the image and likeness of God.

We do not abandon Kevin. We love him, we care for him and we love his family members as they are going through an extremely difficult time.

Please pray for Joan, Keith, David, Nina and Kevin. Please pray for the wisdom of Solomon for Joan. Please pray for a miracle for Kevin.
