Pray for my nephew Camden

My new nephew Camden was born on April 14th, but has had some serious complications. Initially, he had under developed lungs, and needed a respirator to breath for him.

After about 24 hours and noticing some troubling signs, they took a sonogram of his kidneys, only to find that one was not there and the other was severely malformed.

There are other complications as well, but these are the primary drivers of his illness. They are currently trying to decide the best course of action, but he will definitely need dialysis and a kidney transplant moving forward.

Please spend some time begging God to heal this precious little boy!

Although I was raised in the church and had a knowledge of God, I didn’t embrace Jesus until I heard gospel preached and lived out by some Young Life leaders. God has proven faithful and good to me since that day, even in great suffering and loss. I have learned to treasure Romans 8:28 as a wellspring of hope and truth.

God has blessed me with an amazing wife (Olivia), three sons (Micah, Hudson and Owen) and a daughter (Emmaline). Growing up in the northwest, the thought never crossed my mind that I would have four children who are native Texans. Despite landing in the south, I still watch Notre Dame games with my children every Saturday in hopes they will land at my alma mater.
