Someone Special...

I would like you to meet someone very special.

Katelyn Sandbulte

 Here is a little information. Mark's Uncle Milton was an amazing God fearing man.  He married Thelma, and Thelma was adopted. Back than adoption was a huge step of faith also, not knowing the plans God has for the Family. There was not much medical history, no tests done and not much information about the birth parents or  awareness of diseases that affect mothers.  Some years later, Thelma has signs of ms or something that affects the daily tasks of raising a large family. Huntington's Disease is what Thelma and her biological mother had.   This took Aunt Thelma life at an early age. Thelma and Milton where blessed with 8 beautiful children. 3 of the children do not have the disease, and will not pass the disease down.  If you have the disease, you have a 50/50 chance. The other 5 out of have already are in heaven, cousins Mike, Connie, Vic, Keith and Cheryl! Mike's oldest son Jeff and Vic's oldest son both have enter the gates of heaven also because of Huntington's.  (both had the juvenile form)   Today Chris,(Connie's son)  is struggling in the local nursing home home is in his early 30's, and Niki who is married, also struggling and  Katelyn is Jeff's daughter of one the children who has this awful debilitating disease. Katelyn is the 4rd generation going through this, seeing and knowing what is happening and what her future holds! So scary for a 20 year old, when all your friends are planning their future and out having fun! The pain of the hurt for this entire Family has been huge, and to see and let go is unfathomable! 

 Please take time to pray for Katelyn, her Family, Chris, Niki and their families!
 The auction coming up, if you live in the NW Iowa come and join us for waffles on Oct. 22!
She is a sweet girl, who is struggling along with her Family!  Who is in need of God's love to fill her and others heart, as well as financial help, so she can continue to live at home with her Family!

Isaiah 40:28-31  Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God,   the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint,   and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary,and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;   they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary;   they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 41:10  fear not, for I am with you;  be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
