Stength and Help

Today brought exhaustion for all as we have been at this for two and a half weeks now. We are grieving the life we had that ended the afternoon at Princess Margaret Hospital when the doctors took me and Jay into a side room and gave us the news. We have been running on shock and survival and adrenaline, and we are running down some. The support from all our friends and family has been a lifeline for us. I am daily overwhelmed at the love shown to us and my understanding of receiving such love keeps growing as more people pour blessings on us. God continues to strengthen us and help us.
The hospital were Sarah is being treated is a teaching hospital, so routinely the head doctors bring the students in for a practical. Sarah finds herself on center stage answering their questions and being the guinea pig as they poke and prod. She does enjoy the interaction but then it all gets to be too much and she asks to be left alone. She has been a good patient though.
Tonight, when we changed shifts on who stays with Sarah, Hannah and Rebekah came up to see her through the door because they have all missed each other so much. We hope that Monday, Sarah will get to come home so we can all be under one roof again.
Thank you for your continued prayers,

Hello to the Clark Crew,
I am so glad that you are able to keep us update on this blog. It means so much to us back in the states that not able to be there with you except in spirit and prayers. The added touch of the pictures are also welcomed with an appreciative heart. I know that God iws with all of you and that He does not give us any more than we canhandle with His help. Sarah is a very brave and special child of God and is showing others through this experience how to rely on the faith she has and the love she knows God has for her. Hugs to all of you.

Finding a new "normal"....that's how a couple friends of mine described it. It's painful and exhausting and tests your faith.

So glad the sisters got to see eachother today!!!! Praying Sarah will get to go home next week!!!

Pictures are precious!!

Sarah you're a trooper! Peter and Stephen pray for you every night. (We remember all of you, but of course they say, "I want to pray for Sarah.")

Hang in there...

"Behold the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope for His lovingkindness, to deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, because we trust in His holy name. Let your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, according as we have hoped in You."
Psalm 33:18-22

Sarah, I so feel for you as I have experienced that poking and prodding in a Hong Kong hospital - it is not fun especially when you can't understand what they are saying. You are doing so well. We're thinking of you all often and praying for you. Wish we could do more. Love Claire xo

Hi sorry I deleted my last comment by accident. But here it is!

Hi Sarah and the rest of the Clark family,

I'm happy to hear you are doing well! Continue to press on!

I'll continue to pray for healing so you can go home on Monday as well as peace to be on you and your family.

Remember that he is a good God and has great plans for us!

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11

With love,
