Update 29: October 30

Melody Raines

Most of you know that my small group from my church is amazing. They provided me an instant support system here in Austin and showed me the extravagant love of Christ. Jocelin, one of my group leaders, has been especially supportive. She's famous for bringing me rotisserie chicken after my surgeries and sirloin during my blood transfusions. And she's famous for bringing me to chemo on Mondays. 
Some of you know that Jocelin was diagnosed with breast cancer this summer. The day before her surgery, Paul, a member of our group, made a video of us for our church. He did an incredible job of helping us tell our story. People are constantly telling me how powerful this video is—people I know and people I meet at the radiology center and the bank. You can watch it here:
Thanks for being my extended network of support. Everyone needs friends like you.
"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. . . . Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. . . . Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn" (Romans 12:10, 12-13, 15).
