I have such an urgent need for your prayers right now, today! A family that I love has had a tragedy this past year. It is something that we all fear. Their fear became a reality nearly a year ago. Let me tell you their story…
Suzanne and Chris are homesteaders—just like us! They like to grow and raise a lot of their food off the land they are blessed to call home. They determined to feed and nurture these children with the only the best and healthiest foods they could. It became their life purpose to heal these little ones and give them a full and happy life all around.
I had known of this family for years as they were members of our Homestead Community Post online community. One day I traveled to visit their beautiful family. I knew they adopted some children, but had no idea what they had gone through. I came there and was greeted by 7 smiling children who looked so full of life and health. We took walks together and the children played, skipped in the fields like they were free. They giggled and showed me all the animals. When they made healthy smoothies they all gathered round and sang fun songs together. I would sit in the chair and the children would come around to show me their pictures they drew for me or they would want to help me brush my hair, which I loved. I felt so loved in their home. When it was time for bed, Chris and Suzanne offered me their master bedroom. I did not want to take their room. Chris would not have it. He said it was his rules that any guest in their home would have the royalty treatment. I could not make him change his mind even though it meant that Suzanne was sleeping on the couch in the living room and he was on the floor in the basement. I never felt so much heart and so much love within one set of walls.
Here is a typical meal that they feed their family. Lots of veggies, home grown meats, and organic corn chips. It is more expensive to feed the family organic and natural, but we all make it work because like this family we want the very best for our children not knowing it could be a crime.
PLEASE I am begging all of you to WAR for this family in your prayers today! We need to storm the gates of heaven for this family. They represent us, the homeschool and homestead families who love the Lord, who desire to eat healthy from the land. If they win, we win; if they lose, we all lose. That means we all could join them. We are all in danger. We must fight the good fight of faith. We must believe that the Lord can confound the enemies' strategies today, that this case would have no foundation against the family. I am begging you all to get into their shoes and know if this would be any of us, how devastating to be demonized and to be accused unnecessarily. And worst of all, having our precious children ripped from our homes. We must help with all the power we have to go before the throne of Grace and ask of our Father who will not leave us nor forsake us. Tomorrow, and Wednesday are the court dates that the state will try to terminate their parental rights permanently. Lets join our prayers for this family so that we can all stand in AWE as our FATHER takes control and puts their plans to destroy this precious family and separate them. I know that Chris and Suzanne are the very very best parents for these kids. They offer so much to them and I know that they are raising them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Thank you for praying with us.
