Update on My Brother

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
2 Peter 1:2

You can read my original post about my brother here.

Just an up date on my brother, Camie. Not too long after my original post, Camie began to improve markedly. Currently, he is completely off the GI tube and feeling well. He has gained back almost all the weight he lost and started back to work just this week. Going back to work is a monumental step and we would appreciate your prayers for strength for him.

I am so grateful to have my little brother “back” again. We text and speak on the phone often. The twinkle in his eye has returned and he is back to making us all laugh. He is involved in day-to-day life with his wife and kids and even eating and enjoying REAL FOOD! We are looking forward to football season together and especially excited to follow and cheer on our favorite college team–the Oklahoma Sooners. All of these things and more, the little things we take for granted each day, are graces given to my brother and our family from the loving hands and heart of our Heavenly Father.

I want to thank everyone who prayed for Camie and for our family during this difficult trial. I won’t lie, there were some bleak moments. Cancer sucks. Although the cancer is gone, it took months of fighting and recovery to win the battle. Thank God for His faithfulness, mercy, and grace as demonstrated by the faithful prayers of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

By His Grace and for the Gospel,
Terrie van Baarsel
