Do any of you ever go to Nester's files?
She posted about them today, and so I went to check them out.
This picture caught my eye, and before I knew it, I was reading this family's story.
Well, as this family puts it...God's story for their family.
The people in the picture up above are Shannon & Ryan Arnold and Chad & Christine Arnold.
Chad had end-stage liver disease and needed a live donor.
His brother, Ryan, was a match.
The picture up above was taken on the morning of the surgery.
In interviews before the surgery, both brothers were overwhelmed with love for one another.
The hospital removed 2/3 of Ryan's liver first and then transplanted it into Chad's very sick body.
Everyone was relieved that they both made it through surgery successfully.
Tragically, a few short days later, Ryan had complications and died.
This is Ryan, Shannon & their three boys for a family Christmas picture.
You can follow Chad's continued story here.
I'm encouraged and challenged by this family's faith, and I know you will be, too.
