I am so grateful for this family and how their FAITH in God is so evident. They are light to many in a dark world and salt of the earth people. Shawn and Kristy know that their Redeemer lives! Thank you both for your FAITHFUL examples!
Sixteen months ago, Kristy came about as close as anyone could come to losing her life. After giving birth, she bled so much that she had to have more blood replaced in her body than she usually had in her body. It was that week that her husband, Shawn, who had a really good job - lost it!
It's been a long 16 months at the Bates house and God has been so very FAITHFUL ! As Kristy recovered, they reached out in FAITH and began their own business! Then, one of their little guys was diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Again, they reached out in FAITH and trusted God for the possible - from what seemed to be an impossible situation.
Over the last 16 months, money and energy have been little and FAITH has been stretched...
Yesterday, after many months of working through a very challenging system, their little guy had his first day at a preschool for children with special needs. God provided many miracles along the way to make this happen.
And, yesterday, while on their way to their little guys new adventure, Daddy Shawn got the call he's been waiting for - for 16 months: "Your hired!"
Thank You, Jesus! Thank You, Jesus! I have seen greatness in the FAITH journey of my friends Shawn and Kristy... because I see them transforming more and more into Your likeness.
