Zac is still battling to maintain stability. Worldwide prayer requests
send out and received.

own little body. Prayer changes everything ! Our heartfelt THANKS to
everyone that has been praying for our "little Angel".
Your prayers have surely helped to move the Hand of God ! We are

Zac's respiration levels has improved so much that the Doctor's are
considering taking him off the Ventilators and 'upgrading' him to the CPAP

Overall Zac is still quite sick but stable...
Thanks again for the countless prayers and well wishes. We ask that
you keep praying for his Complete Healing...

Overall Zac's progress has been amazing... We really serve an Awesome God
... He made all this possible. Thank you very much for all the
continuous praying ... it has really moved the Hand of God !
