praying for Tricia

Five years ago I began reading a blog by Nathan Lawrenson, a worship pastor from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Nathan's young wife Tricia, who has Cystic Fibrosis, was in need of a double lung transplant. She was also pregnant. Although they were advised to terminate the pregnancy, Nate and Tricia chose to give their unborn baby a chance at life.

Nothing short of miraculous, the Lawrenson's daughter Gwyneth was born 15 weeks early and survived. Today she is nearly 5 years old. And Tricia received the new lungs she needed to survive. Tricia and Gwyneth were cared for at Duke Medical Center, an incredible facility. Our family has had experience with Duke.

Now, Tricia is in dire need of another lung transplant and is very, very sick. You can read their story here. It is one of incredible faith, love, and perseverance. Please join me in praying for Tricia, Nathan, and their family ... for strength, healing, peace, and that God's will be done.
