The Transplant is Done

Leviticus 17:11a
"For the life of a creature is in the blood."

Tammy's transplant is complete. The nurse just disconnected the bag of Mike's cells and flushed the line. That simply, the process is done and the next stage of recovery begins.

Our good friend, Jan Kniesly, is here with us. Together, we prayed for the cells as the nurse got them ready, and we watched the cells travel through the tube. It was fascinating to watch the life-giving blood cells literally move from the bag, through the tube, into her vein. It caused us to think about how it was the blood of Jesus that brings us new life.

It's very simple, yet very profound. Tonight we're praising God for Mike's donation of his blood to save Tammy's life. Every day, we praise God for Jesus' donation of His blood to save all of our lives.

Tonight, we pray that you have received that salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ.
