    Admittedly, we're not the medical types, but that looked like more than one moving toe to us. Hooray!
    Just as beautiful as the toes, though, was the glimpse of Steve's smile.
    We'll keep praying…

  • Lisa Olason


  • Tom Diederich

    Great news, Steve! Keep it up!!!

  • Helen Ackerman

    To think you were near death just a month ago and now you can smile the way you always smile in church – only your allowing Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit to fill you up enables you to do that! You are such an encouragement! You are in a ministry that few of us are called to, you are in the fellowship of His suffering and we in the church community are uplifted by what Jesus is doing in your life as well as the lives of your family and friends…. Indeed, our own troubles pale in comparison …. Encouraged by your response, we too will fly like eagles as we allow ourselves to be lifted by the Spirit. Today, the big toe, tomorrow …. as always, to God be the glory for what He has done and what He will do ! 1 Co 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him!”

  • Herlan Siregar (ucm)

  • Mac and Rhoda Bradshaw

  • Jodi Durr

    Maybe I'm just hopeful too, but that looks like more than a toe to me!
