HI everyone first of all let me say I'm sorry for leaving you all in the dark about Joey. Last night I was able to spend some quality time with my brother for a couple of hours. He is looking really good and as handsome as ever and very youthful. He wasn't awake too much while I was there but several times while he was asleep he lifted up his leg, this was the first time I have witnessed such a strong movement from him. Even though it was a reflex kind of move during his sleep, I feel this is a good sign. Later in the night while he was awake he lifted his shoulders and head about an inch and 1/2 off of the pillow, I jumped up by his side feeling in my heart he was trying to get up. I know it is a matter of time and believe with all my heart for a complete healing and restoration for Joey! He also moved his head side to side looking around. I thank you all so much for the continued prayers and support! I'm excited to have each and everyone of you by his side following his progress so that you can be a witness to God's glory and his everlasting mercy that endures forever and ever! Continue to hold our family up in your prayers and walk with us on this journey of faith for a complete healing for Joey Nava, whom we all love so much!
I also wanted to mention to those of you that recall an earlier post asking for prayer for a dear friend of the family Hirum Catrett, (He had got into a motor cycle accident and went into cardiac arrest, and experienced many of the same things my brother has) last Saturday he was released from the hospital and he walked out, against everything the doctors had said.
He is a walking miracle, and through his life many people in that hospital became believers of Christ! Praise God for the healing in his life and for using Hirum and his family to touch many peoples lives!
I know that God is doing something in and through my brother and it is just a matter of time before he comes out of this.
It is not the doctor's who will make my brother well but the almighty Physician above! With all that said I know we are headed in the right direction in Jesus mighty name! AMEN! I know in my heart God has a purpose through all of this and remember to praise him in and through the storm, I leave you with this scripture:
So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men,but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2: 5
