Elisabeth Elliot {update from Valerie Elliot Shepard}

Isent an email to Valerie Shepard {Jim & Elisabeth Elliot's daughter} today to get an update on her mother.  So many of you have written me inquiring about our dear Elisabeth. 

Here's what Valerie has said that I can share with you all—my dear friends:

Our family has 3 sisters (our daughters) getting married this summer! One in June, one in July, and one in Sept!! We are very thankful for each new fiance and see how God has given them to our girls. We are continuing to plant Christ Coastal Church here in Southport, and we're thankful for the Lord blessing us with a faithful few. Would appreciate prayers for God to increase our number and for us to find another facility to rent (we meet in our living rm. now) and for God to send at least 2 other couples who are committed to our vision- that of reaching un-churched people here in Brunswick County. Theo is planning on going to a Christian college in the fall, not sure which yet. Sarah has one more year of high school in a very godless high school, but her faith is growing and one of her friends just became a Christian, with whom I do some discipling. Praise God for that!

Pray for Lars and my mother, that God will give each of them strength and joy, and that Lars will find someone who can replace ... { sorry dear friends, I omitted the name for privacy purposes} and really know how to help my mother. Blessings to every one who is praying for them. We ALL appreciate any prayers you ask God for them! Val

Let's continue to keep our dear Elisabeth, Lars, and Valerie in our prayers.  So many of us have been blessed by the kindness of them sharing Elisabeth with us.

Also let's keep Valerie, Walt, the churchc and the kids in our prayers.  They have a lot on their plate.

Thank you so kindly for caring about Elisabeth & inquiring.  I will do my best to keep you updated.

Never forget— "You are loved with an everlasting love and underneath are the Everlasting Arms."
