Just wanted to let you all know that Al is safely back home with us. Hurray! All the kids came over tonight and helped make cheesesteaks and french fries to celebrate–it was a great time.

It’s good to have him back home!!

    I continue to stand in amazement at how Al’s testimony, Libbie’s transparency, and Eowyn’s postings show a family glorifying God in the midst of a long and difficult trial. Praise God. May the words of Romans 8:28-30 continue to demonstrated in the faithful testimony of your family to His glory and your growth in the faith toward Christlikeness.

    God is faithful – and so good!

    Still praying for you and praising God for the way you all are honouring His Name through it all.

    Much love and best wishes

    You are the most amazing person I know. It’s refreshing to hear of your love for all the people around you even though you are the one in pain. You are quite an inspiration to all of us. My prayer for you is that you will recover soon and that Jesus presence will be near and close to you in very real ways.

    Much love,
    Twila, Jerry, Kristin, Catherine, Jason & Jon & Jessi (now Hovde)

    Dear Al and Libbie,

    I had heard nothing of your situation until Tim Geisse sent an email to the DACF list today with a link to your blog. Wow, it’s been very emotional for me to read some of the entries and get a glimpse of what you’ve gone through lately. One thing is for sure, I’ve never seen a man so sold out for Jesus as Al, and I’m not a bit surprised that you are going strong for Jesus during these trying days. From the day we met in 1974 at the Libby’s plant in Rochester, Al you have always been my example of somebody longing to serve Jesus with all his heart. Thanks for still being that example, brother. You have the reward of a wonderful family serving God and displaying His truth and goodness – wow, what a treasure. You have much to be thankful for. God is so good, and you reflect that goodness brightly. I’ll be sure to pray for you daily. Take care, Al and Libbie. I’m blessed by you.

    So much has happened over the past several years. God has been good to us, and nothing brings me more joy than seeing my two kids (Krista – 17 and Brian – 16) growing up and becoming young adults and learning about God. This last week has been rather tough as Krista was hospitalized for depression with periods of being suicidal. She came home today, and I’m trusting that she will continue to get better. She loves God but needs to know His love for her more, plain and simple. Please pray for her. Thanks!

    I’ll keep in touch. Bless you!
    Mike Connolly

    Dear Al and Libbie,

    So glad to hear of this recent development. Home is so much more relaxing than the buzzing and clanging of the hospital. Plus there is no one waking you for vitals or blood draws.

    I am praying that God will give a restful sleep to Al and that he will know the peace that surpasses all understanding. Know that he who has saved you is constantly interceding for you.

    Much Love,

    Glad for the progress report! Every day for every one of us, over 1000 cancer cells develop in our bodies. Everybody has cancer. However, our immune system destroys them, unless it can’t recognize them. Recognition depends on the ‘alphabet’ of cellular communication – glycoconjugates. Once the cancer is recognized, the immune system can destroy it (unless to weakened by chemo, radiation, or surgery). For twelve years we’ve watched friends recover from all sorts of cancers. Glycoconjugates are God’s substitute for toxic drugs with bad side effects – His answer to prayer for thousands of believers. No harm done in doing a search for ‘cancer’ at glycoscience.org after reviewing the research at glycoinformation.com. The technology won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1999, 2000 and 2001. MIT’s Technology Review Journal listed glycomics as one of the “ten emerging technologies which will change the world.” We’d be glad to help. – Nat
