Many of you have asked how you can help out. Many of you are wondering if there is more that you can do.
Over the weekend I had a chance to think, pray, and ask other parents of micro-preemies about the things that would be most helpful to the Shellenberger Family over this time. Overwhelmingly the revelation and responses I received was "prayer" and "encouragement." There will surely be opportunity in the days and months ahead to pour into the Shellenberger family tangibly and I have been given some great ideas and suggestions from other NICU mommies on just how we can do that. But, for now what seems most needed is prayer and encouragement.
So, with that in mind, we will begin a new "project" today. You are all more than welcomed to continue signing up for the 24-hour prayer slots. This "project" is in addition.
This week I would like to set aside one day (Monday through Friday) to pray for a specific member of the Shellenberger Family.
Monday - Heather
Tuesday - Mitch
Wednesday - Kaylan
Thursday - Jaron
Friday - Teagan
Of course, the blog will be updated as we receive word about the twins, and I know we will all continue to cry out for every member of the family. But, on the day designated for each person I am asking you to spend time with the Lord, pray, listen, read, receive and then ENCOURAGE by posting your thoughts, prayers, words, and scripture on the blog via the comment section. I will set up a post each day that simply states the family member's name. Then all of you can start adding comments to encourage that specific person. Mitch and Heather are reading the blog and they have been very blessed by the words and messages that many of you have already written throughout the blog. They will surely find strength and peace in reading your heart-felt, God-breathed revelations and prayers for them as individuals.
