Baby Isaac Leino Feb 25, 2007 - Aug 25, 2007

I have blogged in the past about our worship pastor and his wife, Jordan and Patience Leino. They had a baby almost 6 months ago and they knew even before he was born that he would required at least 3 heart surgeries in his first year of life. When he was born they found out he had many more problems than they had realized. Only a few short weeks later he was fighting for his life. At least 3 times they weren't sure if he would make it through the night. But each time he proved to be the miracle baby. Patience and Jordan exhibited so much strength and faith throughout all this. They kept up a blog for baby Isaac that became an amazing testimony around the world.

In about his 4th month he was able to go home but a few weeks later they found some problems that left him little chance to survive. This past Sunday evening Isaac Jordan Leino left this life and all his tubes and medical problems behind to be with Jesus. We attended his funeral today and continue to be amazed at the testimony that Jordan, Patience and little Isaac created by living a life of strength and faith in the midst of the most difficult circumstances.

Patience and Jordan, we love you, and baby Isaac we will miss you.
