We took one of our kids to an allergist this week after two anaphylactic episodes in two weeks.

We tested for environmental allergies a few years ago and found some with simple avoidance reducing allergic reactions at that time.

This time our pediatrician referred us to Dr Susan Raschal’s practice, Covenant Allergy and Asthma Care.  We are thankful and joyfully praising God.

Not only did the professionals at this practice efficiently find two allergens, they treated us to the most God-honoring experience throughout our time in their care.

It never occurred to me to view my faith as anything other than vibrant and alive as a child and young man. Our Wednesday night meetings were several congregational songs followed by the whole church coming forward to the dais, sitting in the first few pews for those who were older, sitting or kneeling at the altar to share prayer requests aloud with one another and then spend time as first one person and then another prayed for the requests aloud with one designated member closing the prayer meeting. Singing and praying; it was a series of events enjoined in devotion and sincerity that I can only now begin to appreciate.
