Celebrating Isaiah

Thank you for celebrating Isaiah's baptism with us!

We have more to celebrate!

Jedi Master Isaiah Oates can read Set 1 of the Bob Books.

He had a great close of the season game, catching an out at first base and ripped the ball out to right field to end the game! He also dodged the catcher to score safely at home.

Very close to being water safe, Isaiah has almost mastered his next Jedi challenge: swimming lessons. Check in later this week to check out pictures of his backstroke and knee dive into the deep end.

He lovingly and excitedly received communion for the first time yesterday. His sweet heart is a gift to all of us.

Thank you for celebrating our joys. As we enter week 4 of our Third course of Maintenance we pray for strength for Isaiah's bones. His steroids have been cut in half for the remainder of treatment but the doses we have left can still produce continued bone loss. Pray for us as we seek God's wisdom. We will be at Sutter Memorial this Wednesday, June 18. Isaiah will receive chemotherapy through this port (Vincristine) and will begin a shortened course of steroids.

What beatiful photos of such a beautiful family! Isaiah, congratulations on your Baptism and First Communion. We were sorry to have missed it, but we were there in spirit! We'll be thinking of you this week...

You're in our prayers,
Cara, Patrick and Jae

You lift us up and give us reason to believe in Him. We will continue to lift you up in prayer.

We continue to hold you up in prayer.

Isaiah, you've had some busy weeks. Sounds like swimming will be a fun summer activity.

Love and Light,
