And the Blessings Keep Coming...

Three days after the benefit and we're still overwhelmed with the support and gratitude everyone showed and today another tremendous blessing came our way...Roger and his wife (my dad works with Roger at Cargill) rented a motorhome and today at 5:00 they picked Wendi and Kingston up from Seattle and are driving them down to Houston!

Wendi and Kingston were not going to be cleared to fly until nearly the time Cash was finishing treatments so Roger volunteered to drive her and Kingston here to get them here much quicker.  At first we weren't certain how long it would take to clear her to fly but last night Wendi decided she'd had enough waiting and was feeling good so she called Roger and by this morning he had made all of the arrangements!  It takes at least 40 hours to drive from Seattle to Houston but they are already on their way - Kingston still sleeps quite a bit so I think the drive will be good for both of them.

Needless to say, Jack, Cash, and I are very excited - Cash hasn't seen his mom in over 4 weeks and neither boy has met their little brother.  If I could ask you to pray, I would ask that you pray they have a safe trip and that God puts a hedge of protection around them and the motorhome.  Kingston won't remember the trip of course, but he'll definitely have stories to tell someday of his travels...:-)

I'll keep you updated on their progress and cannot thank Roger and his wife enough - what a blessing - we are blessed and this is just another example of God's provisions and how incredible everyone has been.  Thank you for your support and prayers as always and have a great evening!!!


  1. That is so awesome, Cargill and all of the people that work for or with them are wonderful people. We will pray for a safe journey and take plenty of pictures when Cash sees his mommy for the first time in quite the while. They will be priceless I am sure. Hugs and prayers, The Rocha Clan.
