May it be said of Team Mitlo One that they live like the wise men and follow the Way to God - the only Way - Jesus!
"When they saw the star, they were overjoyed."
Matthew 2:10

Thank you for joining us as we seek the Almighty Healing Hand of Jesus on Trey as Jay and Rachel wait for test results this week!

Please remember to pray for that Christmas miracle to be unwrapped!
For God's peace that passes understanding!
For comfort and joy - the REAL kind - to embrace the Mitlos!

And as we all face a New Year, for grace to accept all that God has in store for each one of us!

"When He has brought out all His own, He goes on ahead of them, and His sheep follow Him because they know His voice."
John 10:4

Trey Tuesday - December 20, 2011

"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house."

Matthew 5:14,15

As a candle has profound impact where it is burning, its consuming fire, its sweet aroma, affecting those within reach,
so it is with Jesus!  Jesus entered this dark, dark world as a seemingly helpless baby, only to grow in wisdom and in stature, in favor with God and with man, walking and talking and shining brightly as our Lord and Savior, pointing others to God, the Source of all Light!

As we pray for Trey this Christmas week, I think of Trey as a special candle of God's that He shares with us!  :)
Trey shines so brightly everywhere he goes!
Trey's contagious zeal engages all in his path!
Trey's courage and stamina and innocent, yet undeniable faith, affect many within his reach!
Trey, through the constant attention and affection of Team Mitlo One, shines brightly, pointing us and repointing us to God, the Source of all Light!

We rejoice ecstatically with Jay and Rachel at the great news we received yesterday concerning Trey's kidney function test numbers!
We kneel before the Light of our life, the Great Physician, and cry out for more good news from Trey's CT and Bone Scan on Wednesday as the doctors assess Trey's progress!

Please, as always, join with us in fervent prayer for Jay and Rachel as well.  They are such inspirational examples of being a lit candle, not concealed, but placed where they may be of use...God's use.

You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;

my God turns my darkness into light"
Psalm 18:28

Trey Tuesday - December 13, 2011

"But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son"
Galatians 4:4 ASV

This is a busy time of year, right?
Always running, shopping, multi-tasking....never time to do everything!

The word time is used over 600 times in the Bible!  Must be a pretty important message from God and an important emphasis in our lives!

For this Trey Tuesday let's take a peek back at a very precious time...

...the time came for the Baby to be born"
Luke 2:6 NIV

There were a lot of people in those days who had different ideas about how and when and where the Savior and King would come.  But God waited until the exact right time and place.  Nothing with God is hurried or rushed or early or late!

As for God, His way is perfect
2 Samuel 22:31  NIV

So as we wait with Jay and Rachel for Trey's testing next week, we know the outcome we all pray for - complete healing for Trey!
We want a miracle that undeniably points to the saving work of Jesus in Trey's body!
Please continue to pray for Trey's strong numbers, great health, his gift of life, and for his little body to fighting its fight!

Let's also pray about all the other dynamic work God is performing during this time:
- Jay and Rachel being held together by the Strength of the Lord and the love and support of family and friends!
- the Penn Hills community - and around the whole world! - bonding together for Trey's sake, and the sake of the gospel!
- the many, many lessons we all have, and will continue to learn by watching this vivacious boy laugh and sing and play and dance (and outsmart his dad!)  :)
- the testimony of Team Mitlo One lived outloud in the hospital, schools, community, stadiums, offices, on Facebook, Caring Bridge and beyond!

"As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him.
2 Samuel 22:31 NIV

Trey Tuesday - December 6, 2011

"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
Proverbs 17:22

If you have the privilege of spending 2 minutes with Trey you can testify to this verse!
Trey's cheerful heart is good medicine - for us - and for him!
Trey's contagious laugh etches a permanent warm fuzzy in your heart!

As we gather for this Trey Tuesday, praise God with me for Trey's laughter!
For the healing salve Trey's voice is wherever he goes!
Praise God for Trey's innocence, his trusting acceptance, enjoying one day, one moment at a time!
For his zeal, his dancing and his laughter!

Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
John 10:10

Please pray for Trey's continued excellent days! 
For much joy and laughter in his life, his family and his health!
For the Lord to bless Trey with a miracle of complete healing from cancer!
For this Christmas season to be a time not to worry and fear, but of joy for Jay and Rachel and Joe and Bella and Trey!

And for you, Trey's prayer warriors, may you make a good choice like Trey, to laugh!

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.  The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:2,3
