Ole' Ole' Ole' Ole'

Our cookie monster!
Playing with Stuffy through the glass door

Go Bokke!

Wow ! What a weekend! We are the Rubgy World Champions again hooray!
Deqlan and I joined Grandpa and Nanna, Meggy and Great Grandpa for a DELICOUS roast with all the trimmings,on Saturday night and then watched the game together
Deqlan 'stole' Great Grandpa's walking stick and went walking around the house for about 20 minutes, holding it very proudly in his hand. We were all on the floor with laughter, he looked so very very cute and the more we laughed the more Deqlan laughed! It was very special and im sure Great Grandpa will enjoy sharing his stick with his beautiful boy
We then watched the game together and where very proud to be South Africans!

Sunday was spent playing and cleaning and catching up on a bit of sleep! Deqan only went to sleep at 1130 on Saturday night! Mustve been all the excitement but was up by 630am ! We had a lovely day laughing and playing together and Deqlan was definitely Dada's boy yesterday. Deqlan also took a liking, make that a loving, to Oreo biscuits ( i know naughty Mama and Dada) Deqlan became the cookie monster and couldnt get enough!

Please pray for our dear friend Kate as she gets the results of the further testing done on her tumor last week. Please pray that they are fantastic and that Our Lord continues to heal Kate and guide and protect the whole Jacobs family

Please also pray for all our friends in the NB battle and all the others fighting Paediatric cancer - that they recieve their healing and that Our Lord gives them and their families strength and courage and renewed Faith each day!

Only 3 more sleeps and it will be Deqlans last chemo, ever please Dear Lord. The nerves are definitely kicking in as results are around the corner - i cant wait to type the words NED - NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE. Please Dear Lord continue to heal our beautiful soldier. BY JESUS STRIPES DEQLAN IS HEALED.

Have a lovely week, look after yourselves

God Bless & lots of love
Mark, Samm & Deqlan

My, how you are growing little man! Its great to see such wonderful pictures of you being busy!

Good Luck for the next and LAST round of chemo! You are all in my prayers & thoughts daily!

We look forward to great test results and excellent news form the doctors!

"Father God, we continue to pray and ask for permanent healing for baby Deqlan. Keep him strong and hold his mommy & daddy tight as they go through the last round of chemo and as they begin testing Deqlan! Lord, we thank you for Deqlan, a precious miracle, that has taught us all so much. Thank you for healing him and keeping him safe, Amen"

Keep safe and God Bless you all!

Love Claire, Stephan & Hannah

Deqlan is growing by the day! Thanks so much for all the pics, its wonderful to see him in "action".
We all know that the 25th is going to be last session of chemo Deqlan will ever have to have, and that he will be NED for ever and ever!
You will all be in our thoughts and prayers on thurs.

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.

Hope you all have a fab week!

With lots of love, hugs and kisses
Bron, Kobus & Matthew
