Thank you so much for your prayers for Courtney and Faustino. In January it looked like her new baby was going to be born three months early. Grady rushed her and Faustino to Sierra Vista and where she was immediately flown to Tucson Medical Center. When she arrived there they were certain that she was going to deliver and the doctors prepared her for a pre mature birth. After several hours the doctors were able to stop the contractions and one doctor told Courtney and Faustino that if at all possible they should stay in Tucson or they would be looking at several expensive rides in the helicopter in the next few weeks. At that point John and Judy Hintz entered the picture. John is pastor of Tucson Bible Church which one of the most special group of brothers and sisters in Christ that Pat and I have ever known. John and Judy took Courtney and Faustino into their home and accepted them as their own which included transportation to the Doctor’s appointments and about 8 trips to the hospital when contractions would not stop, but their most important provision was a glimpse of the true love of Christ. We have mentioned to you many times over the years that everyone in our family understands that the people we see come to Christ and grow in His grace are the result of brothers and sisters in Christ who pray for us on the field. We all count you as gifts from the Lord. There is no doubt John and Judy Hintz and the church are great gifts of the Lord. All of us are very privileged to count them as friends. Because of that love Courtney was able to go full term and Joshua came into this world April 7 2011 and 1:30 am. He weighed eight pounds and was almost twenty inches long. Thank you so much for your prayers and Pat and I are so proud to announce Risley Family Ministries’ newest addition. Praise the Lord for His wonderful blessings.
