Even superheros have a weakness. This is Clark's!
Clark cannot eat grapefruit or drink the juice because it cancels out his anti-rejection meds. Who knew? Unfortunately, this was one of his favorite fruits and he would drink grapefruit juice almost daily. It is also one of the last things he bought before going into the hospital. It truly is his Kryptonite.

Join in Fast for Clark

We would like to invite everyone to participate in a fast for Clark this Sunday, Dec. 6. Our specific plea is that his bone marrow will start to function and a Bone Marrow Transplant will not be needed. Also, Clark's liver functions are elevated again. They adjusted his meds and did an ultrasound to try to figure out why and get on top of it quickly. I think that we were all humbled and prayerful a couple months ago when things were really scary for Clark and we saw miracles worked by Heavenly Father. We need another! I have a testimony of fasting. I am grateful that we are able to submit ourselves and demonstrate our willingness to put off the natural man. There are very few ways that we have to outwardly show the faith we inwardly carry.

If you are unfamiliar with fasting, here are a couple references.
