Through various gifts from Steve's listeners, we have received $765 so far. This is a huge blessing that we are so grateful for. God is making a way where there seemed to be no way. In addition to this, we have been experiencing family reconciliation after years of separation.
Alison's recovery is also improving each day, little by little. In the beginning, she was having a very difficult time speaking, eating, drinking, sleeping, and just being able to function all around. She was in great pain and suffered from reactions from the medications she was taking for the pain and Bell's Palsy. She has much less pain now and her medication reactions have cleared up. She is almost able to smile again and she is able to blink. She still has to tape her eye shut at night but that too is getting less and less necessary as her eye begins to function as it once did. She has been able to eat and drink almost like normal. Our court date has been moved forward to Wednesday, March 16th but may be moved to Friday, March 18th. We appreciate all of you who have kept us in prayer and who have donated as they were able. Please continue to keep us covered in prayer. We were given some hope of leniency by the judge from one of the officers, so please keep this in prayer. This has been a long and difficult road but the Lord has sustained us.
The courts told us that while we are on probation we can't start or run any business, including as an independent contractor since that is part of the reason for this case. It has really hindered us as many have approached Bradley for different things but we got "corrected" by the courts on them. The courts like to demand money while making it next to impossible to make it.
