  1. I grew up with Sten at Grace Bible Church and he was in my class at Petra for a couple of years as well! I have been following your story for several months now and I just wanted to say thank you for your transparency and faith as you walk this journey. It has made me more aware of how precious every second of every day is with my own children, even when they are throwing themselves on the floor in a screaming fit of rage!! We are praying for Allistaire and for your family! I hope that you continue to get good news and doors opened as you prepare for this transplant. Love all the pictures of the kids. They are beautiful.

  2. What, what?? And YAY, YAY!!! Rejoicing with you this morning! So good to see these pictures. Prayers and hugs to you all!
    The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

  3. Our God is the source of ALL good! We thank Him for His richness to us in Jesus, for the unclouded vision in His Word,where we can see His person, character, grace, glory,humiliation, suffering, death, resurrection. Oh, to see His hand in little Allistaire’s. body, and the answer to many prayers, praising Him! Blessing Him today. he IS our refuge and strength a very present help in our time of trouble. Love the pictures, looks like fun day.

  4. Whooohoooo!!!!!! So happy to see your beautiful face riding the carousel with Allistaire! Praying daily along with many from our church and family! GOD IS GREAT!

  5. Awake, my soul, and with the sun
    Thy daily stage of duty run;
    Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise,
    To pay thy morning sacrifice.

    Thy precious time misspent, redeem,
    Each present day thy last esteem,
    Improve thy talent with due care;
    For the great day thyself prepare.

    By influence of the Light divine
    Let thy own light to others shine.
    Reflect all Heaven’s propitious ways
    In ardent love, and cheerful praise.

    In conversation be sincere;
    Keep conscience as the noontide clear;
    Think how all seeing God thy ways
    And all thy secret thoughts surveys.

    Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
    And with the angels bear thy part,
    Who all night long unwearied sing
    High praise to the eternal King.

    All praise to Thee, who safe has kept
    And hast refreshed me while I slept
    Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake
    I may of endless light partake.

    Heav’n is, dear Lord, where’er Thou art,
    O never then from me depart;
    For to my soul ’tis hell to be
    But for one moment void of Thee.

    Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
    Disperse my sins as morning dew.
    Guard my first springs of thought and will,
    And with Thyself my spirit fill.

    Direct, control, suggest, this day,
    All I design, or do, or say,
    That all my powers, with all their might,
    In Thy sole glory may unite.

    I would not wake nor rise again
    And Heaven itself I would disdain,
    Wert Thou not there to be enjoyed,
    And I in hymns to be employed.

    Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
    Praise Him, all creatures here below;
    Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
    Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

  6. Well, who knew that Praise God from whom all blessing flow (the Doxology) was the last verse of an 11 verse hymn. And, I thought BSF sang a lot of verses. But what they all said, Andersons, we your friends, rejoice with you this happy day!!! Hugs all around. Robin Owen

  7. Rejoicing with you and your family, Jai. We first learned about your beautiful daughter through our friends, Jo and Jens. We also moved to Bozeman one year ago with our twin 3 year-old daughters. There are many people praying for you daily back here in Bozeman, people who you’ve never met, but who have been touched by Allistaire and your Testimony, your writing of this deeply personal journey. We pray for your family, for you, Sten, Solveig, and Allistaire daily. Today is a beautiful day. Praise God.

  8. My prayers as Allistaire begins the process of conditioning prior to her transplant. I pray that all is on schedule and goes well. Praying that God continues to hold all of you in the palm of His hand.

  9. We praise the Lord for this powerful answer to prayer. thank you for the pictures…JoMarie looks beautiful and happy…prayers pouring in from the Hall family. Love you. Tammy and Kelly
