Wondering how you can help?

Many people have been asking how they can help out Jed and January... here are a few ways:

1. Faithful prayer: Prayer for Jackson's recovery and rest for Jed and january. Prayer that God's love may be proclaimed to those who don't know Him through this situation.
2. Friendly words of encouragement: A way to show support can be a simple note, card, or email. Jed and January feel so loved by little simple words of encouragement. It helps just to know that people are thinking about them. Even posting a comment on this blog has meant so much. Here is their address/email:

Jed, January and Jackson Paschall
2746 Flower Fields Way
Carlsbad, CA. 92010

3. Financially: Thankfully Jed and January have good health insurance that will cover most of the medical bills. But there are always hidden costs, co-pays, and medicines. Jed will have to take a few days off of work 'unpaid' and January is using all of her sick days in order to stay home with Jackson while he heals. Little gifts are also encouraging: gift cards to restaurants, target, or the grocery store. If you feel led to help with out, you can send your gift to the address listed above.

4. Food: For all of you who love to cook we need your help! Once the surgery is completed and the Paschalls are back at home we want to organize weekly (3 times a wk) meals. click here to sign up.

They're so grateful for your love & support! Your kindness helps them get thru these hard days.

Brian and I will be praying for Jackson. I'm pretty sure that we will not be able to make it to the prayer meeting tomorrow. Know that we will be praying with you, if we don't make it to the meeting.

Wichit and I will be praying 6:00-8:00AM. We have been praying each morning and several times throughout the day as we bring this need before our loving Father. So glad we are all in his care and that He is with us always. May you experience the peace of his presence during these times of uncertainty and fear. Isaiah 41:10 is a promise we are praying for you. We love you and precious Jackson. Love, Grandma and Grandpa in-law Maneevone

Norman and I will be in Kauai but will be praying for you from the time we get up until the evening. We will be praying for God's peace and also for his wisdom as the surgeons do their work. We also pray for strength for little Jackson to endure the surgery and to recover quickly. We love you guys and will be checking the site from Hawaii.

I don't know you, but my family and I will be praying for you on the 24th. I know it is not the same condition, but I had an atrial septal defect when I was born. I had surgery when I was 2 1/2 years old. I am 30 now. Please try to take comfort in the Lord. He will give you strength and grace. I will continue to pray.
