Wendell here going to post for a change......

Since Debbie has felt like posting, I have just left the communication up to her, however it appears she hasn't posted since she started back on radiation so I thought I would drop a line or two.

As of tonight, she is still able to eat some and her mouth doesn't appear to be getting sore inside but her jaw is sore. She is fairly tired and rest quite of bit but that is probably the best thing for her. Please continue to pray as we only have 5 radiations left. Might I add, tonight after we got back from radiation, she rested until around 7:30 now she is up baking cupcakes for Stephanie's class at school to celebrate Steph's 26th birthday tomorrow. Happy Birthday Steph! (bet I'm the first to say it)

I was thinking today about how good God has truly been to us through all of this and it amazes me at His mercy and grace. There are so many sicknesses going around in all of the schools, three of us in our house work in a store where we see anywhere from 300 to 550 people everyday, handle the most contaminated thing in the world (money), Kiah goes to school everyday and there has been some sickness there, swine flu is raging, and I could go on and on but thus far our God has been merciful to us and none of us have been sick. Debbie with her blood count going so low, was very vulnerable to catch any and all sickness going but God has proven very faithful to us. We can set and complain (as I have caught myself doing) but we have much to praise God for.

I, like my wife want to thank all of you for your prayers, calls, cards, notes and gifts during this time. I do believe we have the best friends in the world. We are amazed at how deeply concerned people are and how willing you are to carry our burdens. We love you all and thank you for praying for us.

Wendell and Debbie,
Thinking of you both today. I stand amazed at how you both have kept the faith through all this. Debbie, your life is an inspiration to everyone. God is always lifted up. I was reading in Colossians 2:9-10 "For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power." Christ is all we need. Christ is sufficient. Our family is in continual prayer and thanks God daily for bringing you into our lives.

We love you all,
Ray, Pamela, Madison and Caleb Dunkley
