The Olive Baptist staff family is close-knit. When one hurts, we all hurt.
Since August 29 we have walked a tough road with our financial assistant, Kara Rebitch. Her grandson, five month-old Silas Huffman, has been hospitalized in Atlanta, waiting for a heart transplant. Today, his condition took a serious turn for the worst. He was rushed back to the cardiac ICU unit, where tests revealed his heart is now dangerously enlarged.
You may have heard Silas’ story on KLove or from social media. His father, Chris Huffman, is the bass player for Casting Crowns. I can’t imagine what this is like for Chris and his wife, Amanda. But we are trusting and praying to the One who does.
I visited Silas when he was first hospitalized. It was obvious what a strong fighter he is. Right now this boy and his family need our prayers. I am trusting the Great Physician.
