Please pray for us in the following ways:
- Pray for health: We are doing whatever we can to bring this new gift into the world healthy. We are praying for no complications and no major health barriers standing in the way of our child having a full life.
- Pray for peace: There is a lot to do in preparation for our new child, including several house projects and Brian is feeling a lot of pressure right now. Please pray for us to lean on Christ and not our own understanding, and that God would remove all worry and fear.
- Pray for provision: One of our major personal hurdles is financial. We have significant financial needs during this season and honestly aren't quite sure how God will provide. Sarah will need to quit her job and ECHO recently took a cut in funding that we weren't financially ready for. So please pray that God will meet every financial need.
- Pray for community: We have an amazingly supportive network of friendships, especially within ECHO. We need these people in our lives right now and are asking for deeper and deeper support as we near the due date. Please pray that God will provide emotional, material, and spiritual support from the people we have in our lives.
On a side note: We are aware that the busyness of our lives has stood in the way of keeping you (our supporters) informed of the ins and outs of ECHO life. We are sorry for this, especially if any of you have been feeling in the dark about what's been happening. I (Brian) am planning to produce more regular communication, though I know it has always been a struggle to remain consistent. I would simply ask that you pray for me to stay on top of this, and to never stop praying for us even if you haven't heard much in a while. We covet your prayers and do not take them for granted.
We love you all!
Brian and Sarah Drinkwine
