A Family who needs prayer

I know you guys reading my blog do not know this family, but they are friends with my brother Caleb. I've been reading these updates on my sister-in-law's blog and it is just heartbreaking.
Please join my family in praying for the Burrells,

If you are able...
Darin and Christina Burrell are an awesome couple who found out around 4 months ago that they were expecting their second child. These 4 months have been very trying for Christina as this has been a very difficult pregnancy. They were referred to see a specialist a couple of weeks ago and learned that their baby girl who Christina is carrying has a chromosome abnormality call Triploidy. They have named their unborn daughter Savannah Grace, which means Abundant Grace. Christina is wearing a “prayer pager” (1-956-213-3039) that is being sponsored by Calvary Baptist Church in McAllen, Texas.

Please take a minute out of your day to say a prayer for the Burrell family (Savannah Grace, Christina, Darin, and big brother Jaythan). Please pray that little Savannah Grace will develop properly, for mommy’s health, and that mommy and daddy will experience a peace that surpasses all understanding, and then call the number (1-956-213-3039). It will vibrate letting them know that someone has prayed on their behalf. Also remember their doctors, asking for God’s guiding hand and wisdom as they care for Savannah Grace and Christina.

The pager has a factory set greeting message that says, “Please leave a message after the tone.” However, instead of inputting your telephone number, input the numbers 733 followed by the # symbol, which is a special code meaning “Praying for you.” (The digits “733” represent the number of letters in each word.)

Please call…..it just takes a second or two! What an awesome blessing and encouragement it will be for the Burrell’s every time they get a “buzz”. They covet and truly appreciate your prayers. Please pass this message along to all of your family and friends so that it will have a greater circulation and this family will be covered in prayer at all times.

The Burrell’s created a CaringBridge site to keep everyone up to date on Savannah Grace. CaringBridge is a nonprofit organization that helps friends and families stay connected. You can visit Savannah Grace's CaringBridge site HERE. They just got back from the doctor's and there is a new update.

Thanks for your prayers and God Bless.

I know you don't know me, but I hooked up on this blog from Kelly Hellmuth's blog. It's a small world as I found out about this request via an email prayer request from someone I know in Topeka Kansas. I know there are lots of people praying all over I will continue to lift this family up.
