The awful winter weather has finally left us so we are now able to safely provide free, lifesaving flights again! Our next mission is to fly 2-year old Matthew home to Las Vegas after Matthew receives treatment from his neurologist and nutritionist for an extremely rare form of mitochondrial disease.

Matthew travels with two portable ventilators and a suction machine, he is supported by his mother Sylvia and 10-year old brother Erick.Matthew Hernandez

Our flight is a blessing to the family relieving them of the travel financial burden and the need to make a long arduous drive across the desert and mountains.

Sylvia was relieved to hear from me when I told her we were donating the flight… but she was overjoyed to learn about our Christian prayer ministry! I wish you could have heard the joy and encouragement in her voice! She sent me a photo of Matthew as well as a prayer request… here they are:

“Thanks so much for your help! It’s so hard for our family with this situation but I believe God put amazing angels in our way to help my little boy. Please pray for my baby. He is stable but has a rare type of disease that affects very few babies making it more difficult to find any treatment for him. He stopped breathing three times while I was holding him in my hands and last June me didn’t breathe for 20 minutes so he has cerebral palsy. The doctors tell me that it’s a miracle he is still with life. Please send prayers for our baby Matthew and our family. We believe that nothing is impossible for God… thanks so much and God bless you!

The R4M ministry prayer for Matthew and his family

“Father, we come boldly before You and lift up Matthew, his mother Sylvia and their family. Holy Lord we trust Your word where You instruct us that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28) While we often wonder “why?” we confess that there is no flaw in Your plans for us.  So, we commit now to be obedient to Your word where we are admonished to “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16). We pray for Matthew’s healing. We ask for Your comforting presence in his family. Cover them in Your love and strengthen them as they walk this path they are traveling. We ask in Christ’s powerful name, Amen!”
