September 20, Thursday Morning : Israel’s Pain

This picture was taken last night and the note from Cori was, ” Pain , Pain ,Pain.” Yes , Israel was and is in much pain after his surgery. They woke him up this time and so he must battle the pain awake and conscious. We can pray for his day as well as Cori’s as she sits by her husband’s bed hour after hour and tries to bring comfort. ” From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the Rock that is higher than I .” This rock is only Jesus Christ and He will give the strength in this time of need.

Thank you once again for lifting up Israel and Cori before the throne of God . They so appreciate your care.


Needs: We will be posting some needs that Israel and Cori have . We are looking for someone who would be willing to board their 3 horses this winter. Israel has all the hay and so that will be provided. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping them out in this way please send an email on the email link here on the sidebar. This would be such a help for them. Thank you in advance.

  1. You both are being held up and supported by so many more people than you can imagine, please know that many are supporting, praying and thinking of you and wanting to help in any way we can. We are with you in spirit today, friends.

  2. We are praying for you and following your progress while we are out in town here in Ghana. May Jesus give you the strength you need. I remember meeting Israel at the SENT booth of Charity Bible school 2008. God bless you brother. You are remembered in love and prayer. We’re praying for mercy for the pain to decrease.

  5. Dear Mr. Hale,
    My name is Samuel James Long and I am 10 years old. I remember the time you and the Buckinghams stayed with us in Fairbanks. My Dad said you helped him take out the stubborn nut from his old trailer. You did not give up.Thank you for helping. When I grow up, I would like to be an engineer. Right now I’ll try to design something that could help you move around better than a wheelchair. We pray for you every night. The Lord be with you and watch over you.

    In Christ’s love,
    Samuel Long
