The Chip Update
For those of you who have been praying for our Stateside teammate, Chrissy Chipriano, thank you. After her second surgery, the pathology report showed that the cancer had spread to one of the three lymph nodes. So, she is now in three weeks of intense preparation for radioactive iodine treatment. The reality of the word "cancer" has been very difficult for our spunky, cheerful, energetic, 22 year old to absorb. Please pray for grace and courage for both Chrissy and her family in the challenging weeks ahead of them. She recently reminded me of the words in Romans 8 that says that "all of creation groans" in desire for redemption of brokenness. Yes, even our broken bodies long for a day when all will be made whole and perfect.
