Please be in emergency prayer with us

As many of you may remember, our second daughter Kathryn was born at 24 weeks, 1 day weighing just 14 ounces in 2007. Our family is praying for another miracle now and we ask that you pray with us. My brother Beau and sister-in-law Brittany are expecting their second little boy, Thomas Gaines Daniel. Gaines is due on July 7th, but God may have other plans. Brittany was on a business trip in Washington DC and started having complications yesterday. She was admitted to George Washington University Hospital last night and they determined that her water has broken at 24 weeks. The great news is that she is at a wonderful hospital. The bad news is that she is now in DC possibly indefinitely until Gaines is born. The doctors have said that she could go as long as a month (or more we pray) or as little as a week. Their firstborn son Reed is with family.

As you can imagine we are praying for God's hands in every step of this. I have created a blog for them, with their permission of course, that they can use to update us all. Please feel free to comment on the blog as that is the best way that you can support them right now. You can also pray for them. I for one know EXACTLY how Brittany feels right now and Greg can TOTALLY understand where Beau is. Prayer is one of the most amazing things that you can do to lift up this family. The blog address is

And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up . . . pray for each other so that you might be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:14-16

Faithfully, Kelly Ellis
