Trey Tuesday - May 27, 2014

Happy Thanksgiving!  :)

Let's begin this Trey Tuesday in THANKS AND PRAISE to God for His goodness being showered over Trey and his family during Trey's treatment in Philadelphia!

And yet more PRAISE as Trey is feeling good since the radiation!  He slept through the night last night without pain medication!  :)  And he is eating again!  :)

And THANKS to God for Rachel's safety driving back and forth across the state!  And THANKS for her sanity while cooped up and on call literally 24 hours every day!

And then for the warriors at home!  :)  Many THANKS to God for Joe handling the separation from Rachel without throwing up!  This may be the first time Joe didn't get the stomach bug while Rachel was at the hospital with Trey!  :)

And many THANKS and much PRAISE for our sensitive Bella managing herself through the many loving (and exhausting) activities provided to keep her busy this long weekend!  :)

And for the leader of the pack - All GLORY and PRAISE to God for His provision of wisdom and strength for Jay to hold down the home front, both physically and emotionally, support Rachel from 300 miles away, juggle the kids' schedules and prepare for preaching a sermon on Sunday!

And once again, Team Mitlo One, your thoughts and prayers and words and gifts and and deeds are so powerful and appreciated - we THANK God for each one of you!  :)

"I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High."  Psalm 7:17

"Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name"  Psalm 100:4

"Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever."  Psalm 106:1

Pray for Trey Tuesday - May 20, 2014

Mighty Words for our Mighty Warrior!  :)

Jay and Rachel are pressing on, making plans to get Trey to Philadelphia tomorrow for Trey to be admitted to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on Thursday for his intense radiation therapy.  They could be discharged on Sunday or Monday, or as soon as Trey's numbers are clear for release.

We have numerous prayer requests for the Mitlos.  Many cannot be expressed in human words...So we turn to God and His Holy Spirit, the Great Interpreter of our hearts! :)

Listed below are different translations of the same verse, Psalm 17:7, yet all the same message for Trey.  It is amazing that God could speak His powerful Truth into our hearts and lives to fill our every need in such specific ways!  :)

For wisdom for Jay and Rachel as they make decisions:
"Show me the wonders of Your great love"

For travel mercies for Rachel and Trey, and stay-at-home mercies for Jay and Joe and Bella:
"Reveal Your miraculous deeds of mercy"

For the staff and facility and treatment at CHOP to be successful at shrinking Trey's tumors:
"Wondrously show Your steadfast love"

All over Trey and his health:
"Show Thy marvelous lovingkindness"

For Trey's journey, lived out in Team Mitlo One in a million different ways everyday:
"Accomplish awesome, faithful deeds"

And for God's perfect plan to be lived out in Trey:
"Show me Your unfailing love in wonderful ways"

Trey Tuesday - May 13, 2014

How old are you?

Wait!  Don't answer that!  It doesn't matter anyway...
Our Young/Mighty Warrior celebrated his 6th birthday yesterday - true Warrior style!
Oh, how we praise God for each precious moment we have with Trey!  :)
The life, of each person, of any age (or level of cuteness!) is precious!
And God has a plan for each and every second/minute/day/year/life of each one of us!

God's plan for Trey for today is a CT scan to see what is going on inside him....
Couple this with blood work and an MIBG scan tomorrow....
Top all that off with sleepless nights for the past 2 weeks due to Trey's whining/discomfort/fear/cold:not cold bed.

Yes!  Trey and his family NEED your prayers!
Please be praying for the very peace and comfort and strength from God!
And of course, for a miraculous report of no new growth for Trey!
And for answers and help for his poor body!

THANK YOU, Team Mitlo One, for loving Trey and his family so much!
When God planned this Team, He knew BIG blessings would flow!  THANK YOU! 

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart"
Jeremiah 1:5

"Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in Your Book before one of them came to be."  Psalm 139:16

"To God be the glory and the power for ever and ever! Amen."  Revelation 1:6

Trey Tuesday - May 6, 2014

Good night, PLEASE!?!?

Jay and Rachel ask for special prayers as Trey has not been sleeping well (*or much!) for the past week or so.  Trey wakes up many, many times a night whiny and fussy, yet nothing is seemingly wrong.  Please hold Trey and his sleeping and his health and strength close in prayer.  Please also pray for Jay and Rachel and the doctors to figure out the answers as to why this happening. THANK YOU!

Dear Trey,
Your Team Mitlo one is surrounding you with God's Holy Word tonight.  God's Word is powerful!  His Word is Truth!  His Word is alive and acting for you right now!
So sleep well, our Young Warrior!  God's mighty arm will surround you and help you rest.
God's protection will help you and your dad and mom to not be afraid.
Your bed and sheets and blankets will hold you tight and keep you warm like the many hugs we send to you!

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
“All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.
Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid
"  Isaiah 41:10-14
