Ben and his family is DEFINITELY in our prayers! We see a wonderful pulmonologist at
Children's. His name is Chris Makris but they are all great. Ben is first in Jesus'
wonderful hands but also wonderful hands at Children's. Please keep us posted. We
will pray unceasingly until we hear something.

Of course we will lift up him and them. My cousin by marriage, Ed Colvin, is the chief of
pediactric cardiology at Children's and I imagine they will have some contact with him or

snacks and drinks to the hospital? I would like to contribute to doing so. I am sure the
parents want to stay as close to Ben as possible. Margaret Barton and I did this for a
family in a similar situation last year, so she may also be interested. Please let me know.

help please let us know. We could baby-sit the brother (Gus would love having someone
to play with) or prepare a meal, what ever needs doing. Ben is a strong little guy to have

Can other first grade parents do something like make cards or buy stuff animals or

something as a Girl Scout troop? What do you think? I would really like to do
something to show them that they are part of family at Bear. I will keep him and his

We have a Girl Scout meeting coming up Monday. What if we got a huge Get Well card

Thank you for the e-mails concerning little Ben's condition. I am so glad that he is doing
better; we have prayed for him as a family. I called our pastor's secretary this morning,
and told her all about Ben, and Tristan shared a prayer request with his class this
morning; he asked his classmates and teacher to pray for Ben, and his parents. He had
to reassure everyone that it was not his brother Ben. Ben Greene, and Ben Grier sound
alot alike to 1st and 2nd graders!

I have also passed on a prayer for him to a few prayer friends within our church. If you
don't mind I would like to pass the e-mails on to friends and family members.

Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do for your family; or
even if Lana, Sonny, or Ben are in need of anything.
We will continue to pray for Ben, his parents, and the doctor's that are taking care of
him.

they are on a long flight, or confined to a remote base. So, he is doing the same thing
