Helping the Barbers!

I am trying to get together some things/items to do a raffle and raise some money for the Barber family. If any of you know of anyone I could contact that would be interested in helping out please let me know. Nice prizes, gift cards, etc.. would be great! Or if you would be interested in donating please let me know. Just starting to get this in the works so any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! -Jenny

My heart is broken this morning! Many of you know about Emily Barber... she was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago. She has been in remission for about 6 months now and yesterday found out that she now has a tumor on her spine. I'm not going to go into all the details because I don't want to get any of them incorrect. Please visit her webpage at for all the information and details.
Her mother posts updates fairly regular about her situation.
Emily is a special little girl to me. She has been one of Gavin's buddies at Easthaven for a while now. He talks about her regularly and has been very concerned about her being sick.
It just breaks my heart for her to have to deal with this pain! Please take some time out of your schedule today and lift this family and Emily up to the Lord. Only HE can heal her and ease her pain! They need your prayers today and in the days to come!

**after posting this I went over to check on baby Stellan today and how perfect for Angie to post these verses: (I just thought they were fitting for this too!)
"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will answer him;
I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation...
Psalm 91:14-16
