God's sense of humor

Well, our lives just got more interesting! Yesterday the ultrasound technician broke the news to us..."do you know that you are expecting twins?"!!! I must admit that it took us a few minutes to overcome the shock but I was thinking how much trust God has on us. He's giving us double portion of blessings. He truly has a sense of humor :) We are still in shock but very excited for what God has in store -- four boys! This was established at the foundation of the earth and God doesn't give more than we can handle. It's just that He has more faith in us than we have in ourselves! :)

We prayed for help during Jen's pregnancy --with intensive home care, dr's visits, hospital stays, etc, and we are so appreciative of the answered prayer. My aunt (dad's sis), Mercy, is flying in from Sri Lanka and will stay with us until after the twins' grand entrance in June. It was a long process for her to get the visa but thanks to Senator Webb's office for sending a letter of recomendation to US Consulate in Sri Lanka. Also, I want to thank our neighbors Bob and Madeline (The Sullivans) for contacting all the local senators on behalf of us. Thank you to Mathiasz's for guiding us throug the process. Most importantly, I want to thank Aunt Mercy's church (Moratuwa, Sri Lanka) for lifting up Lukey and praying for this trip. God answers prayers and He's faithful.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Today Lukey starts 6th and last round of chemo per the protocol. Please pray that this is the LAST chemo cycle period. We need God's intervention to get all clear after this. He's AFP is in 60's and please pray that today's reading will trend downwards. AFP rules HBP cancer, and we need this reading to be as lowest as possible and stay low (less than 10 or so) for the next 5 years to get the official "HEALED." We know and believe God has already healed Lukey and no matter how bumpy the road is, our trust is in God. We will be steadfast and thank God for the chance to fight for Lukey's life, no matter how hard the journey has been or will be.

Please pray strength for Lukey's body to endure the chemo and NO side effects. Also, please pray that this chemo will have no effect on his new liver/functions.

Thank you for stopping by to read about our journey. We are praying for you and your family. During this economic uncertain times, we pray for your storm and know that God will see you through. Your prayers saved Lukey's life and I know God will reward your love and faithfulness.

Blessings to you and your family.
