Do you believe that God can speak through dreams? I believe so because there are examples of such in the Bible. I also believe in this because I believe God wants to be intimate with us and speak to us in many different ways. It makes since, why should I put God's ability to speak to me in a nice little clean box? I can't.

I recently became aware of a dream that involved my family, specifically, Anna. This women recently emailed me to inform me of this dream. She was actually in Haiti when I was down there, she arrived several days before I did. This dream occurred prior to my arrival and my knowing her. I have since talked with her about Anna's diagnosis of Pseudotumor Cerebri. After she researched that condition and recalled the details of her dream it was unmistakable that she dreamed about Anna having this condition. In the dream (and we believe in reality) the origin of this condition was from satan. She shared details with me that were spot on when thinking about Anna and her symptoms and experiences. Her purpose in sharing this with us was to remind us of the origin and encourage us to press on towards the goal that God has set before us.

I have but only one word to describe this experience and I know that it is grossly inadequate, awe!

Why do I share this with you? You are family and friends who have come a long side of us to pray for us. This is but a portion of the fruit of your prayers. Thank you, and pray on.
