New Doves

Interesting fact about some birds including doves: The parent flew away from the nest and did the "broken wing dance" feigning injury to try to lure away what was thought to be a predator near the nest. 
It was a photographer...not a predator.

Praying for Aaron...

From Aaron's sister:  During they day in the hospital room in the cardiac ward where Aaron is staying. My mom sent me these pictures and it’s CRAZY seeing how many people are cramped into one space. Luckily, these are some of the sweetest humans you’ll ever meet (my dad purchased 40 apple pies from McDonald’s to give to them and my mom has made cookies to share with them all).
The bottom picture is the same room, but the view at night from underneath Aaron’s hospital bed, where my mom is sleeping on a mat. You can see how family members of all of the other patients also sleep under the beds, as to be beside their loved ones who have fallen ill.
Keep in mind, there is no air conditioning.
Strength and love to ALL of these patients and their families. ❤️
I hope one day, I can help others the way others have opened their hearts to my family.
From Arron's father, Steven Lawrence - a long time follower of The Field Lab:  This is the difference between $35,000 in Vietnam and between $400,00-$500,000 in the US. Both have top notch surgical staff and state-of-the-art surgical equipment and facilities, but the facilities and customs for care while patients await surgery (and post-op non-intensive care once stabilized) are very, very different. Families, not nurses, care for the patients' non-medical needs. The nursing staff only supplies the medical procedures (IVs, bandages, dispensing medication, etc.,). Family members take care of everything else and are with the patients 24/7.  
Please pray for him with me and contribute what you can...

Psalm 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. 2 The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. 3 The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
