A Miracle at Church Sunday

We had a real good day Sunday.  The Lord blessed us in more ways than one.  I know when a person is saved that is a miracle but we saw another miracle.  I have been wanting to write but something was messed up on my internet.  The youth choir was singing, which they usually do on Sunday nights.  But while they were singing I saw them all looking toward the back and smiling.  In just a moment I looked up the side aisle and saw Logan being pushed up to their regular seat in church, which happens to be on our pew.  His Mom and Dad  were able to get a pass to bring him to church.  He was alert, able to shake a couple hands and nodded his head that he knew some of us.  He has a good memory and some of his motor skills are returning slowly.  
You that have read about Logan on my blog know the story of this little six year old boy.  The doctors said at first that he would never come out of the coma.  Then they said he would be a vegetable.  He would never get his motor skills back.etc.  With much prayer and supplication from all over the different churches and people that heard about him, the Lord has seen fit to touch Logan and restore him to us. He has defied all odds.  You can imagine ~ there was not a dry eye in the church.
We know Logan will have a story to tell and God is going to use him mightily.  He can say some words already and move his legs and arms and some of his upper body. God is not through with him yet. 
He is coming along faster than they ever anticipated.  When I say they, I mean the medical profession.

We don't know why this had to happen to Logan just a few months after his Dad answered the call to preach.  Just last Wednesday night his Dad preached for us.  He is a fireball.  All of this has done something for him and his family.  They have been a blessing through it all. 

We don't know why Logan and his parents had to suffer through all this.  But this I know ~  the Lord knows why and has a purpose.  I  know it has helped our church family, it has touched many doctors and nurses and many people around the world.  Many missionaries on many fields  have responded to Logan.  Many have called the church office to ask about him.  I was so glad to be able to tell one preacher that called that Logan is a miracle.  The Lord is doing wonders. 
Around here I cannot tell you the fund raisers for Logan.  A track was made called "Logan's Story."  It has been past out by the hundreds.  There will be a big fund raiser for him Friday just a few miles from us Friday night.  Singing groups and local youth church choirs have all gotten together to put this on. Our youth have been practicing for weeks for this.  Other groups, also.

Logan's parents are trying to find a place closer home for them.  He is in New Orleans now.  There are several options so help us pray that one of them will be the right one for him. 

Three eleven year old boys from church wrote a song and it talks about Logan's journey and God's promises.
As the youth choir sang it Sunday night it was so touching.  They really have had a burden for Logan.  This has taught our youth that we can stand on God's promises  even in the hard times.  Our prayer is that they may remember all this as they grow older. 

Need to go this time. Blessings to all of you this week.
