Blake and Katy's journey to reach the students of Dublin. 

Christmas and Steroids

First, we thank you for your prayers. This past Sunday was our church's Christmas outreach event. It went so well! There was a giant group of people helping to pull it off, and they worked so hard. Well over 800 people came in to hear and experience the story of Christ, many for the first time.

Second, we appreciate your continued prayers. You may have seen on Facebook this past week that Katy had a possible relapse of MS symptoms. She developed a mild case of optic neuritis, causing her vision to deteriorate in her left eye. After a six hour visit to the A&E (emergency room for our American readers), she was diagnosed and prescribed intense IV steroid treatments.

The first of three treatments was today, and it went smoothly. The pain in her eye has subsided. We are praying that her vision will return as normal soon. Her remaining treatments are tomorrow and Wednesday around two o'clock. Please pray for complete restoration and no side effects.

Meanwhile, we are happy to be slowing down into a great week of Christmas festivities! Katy's mom is here, and we are looking forward to a relaxing week.

Thank you so much for all your prayers and support. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas with friends and family.
