News from our friends in Hong Kong

I couldn't wait to share the news I heard from my new friends, Stephen & Jacqueline Chu from Hong Kong. They received much better news from the doctor yesterday than they expected. The doctor actually believes Jacqueline may be able to "beat the odds" as Stephen put it.
They will return to Hong Kong mid week and Jacqueline will begin chemo very soon.
I told them how thankful I was for answered prayer but that the prayers would not stop since they are only at the beginning of their journey. I also told them I would be communicating this with all of you as well. Thank you for your continued prayers for this precious couple.
Let me say also that in the midst of their despair this week, they continue to ask about Matthew and pray for good news for him on Monday. Isn't it amazing that we will be praying for each other from one continent to another?
I shared Romans 15:13 with Stephen and Jacqueline on Thursday and Stephen felt it came alive for them on Friday. It says: "May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
