On Tuesday October 11, 2011 Leanne (Chin) was diagnosed with breast cancer. This blog will follow her journey. It will share the peaks and valleys along the way. But it will also serve as a way to communicate prayer requests and praises. Join us as we partner with Chin and fight along side her for she "...can do all things through Christ who strengthens her." Phil. 4:13

The meaning behind Chin ... There is a Chinese restaurant in the Twin Cities named Leann Chin. While Leanne was attending a basketball camp in middle school, a fellow camper had a bag from the restaurant. This camper made the connection between the name of the restaurant and Leanne's name. And the nickname Chin stuck!

Now what ...

Well, its been two months since we started on this journey of grief and loss. We have spent the past two months figuring out what our new normal looks like. We have enjoyed every story we continue to hear about Leanne. We have spent many quiet moments crying as we listen to the music that brought her so much hope and peace. We have spent most of our days thinking of her, wishing we could tell her something, wanting to call her or text her, wishing we could hear her voice, and yearning for heaven.

But enough about us.

What about you? We know you haven't stopped watching. Searching. Trying to find the meaning in all of this. Trying to figure out why we have hope amidst the despair that threatens to overtake us at any given moment.

Leanne's Celebration of Life service has been viewed 832 times. The TEAM CHIN blog has been viewed over 100,000 times in the past two months. That means that each one of those views has seen and heard the gospel clearly preached. Jesus died for your sins. So you can spend eternity in heaven with Him. And Leanne :)

What are you doing about it? Have you made the choice to let Jesus be your Savior? Have you shared the gospel with someone you love because you have seen first hand that tomorrow isn't guaranteed and you can't bear to spend eternity without them? Has your outlook on life been changed by the legacy of faith that Leanne had?

Know that as much as you have been praying for us, we are praying for you as well. Praying that your lives have been radically altered because of the influence of Leanne's life on yours. Praying for each of you to come to know Jesus in a more personal way. Praying that you would continue to share Leanne's story and the hope it holds.

We will not stop praying for you! And we are asking that you will not stop praying for us. Here are some specific requests:

  • Praise! Leo has been sleeping better at night. But please keep asking God to continue giving Leo the rest he needs
  • Strength for Ryan 
  • Continued comfort for Ryan, Leo, and the White & Miller families
  • Peace for the White family
  • God to continue to be glorified in how Leanne's life is shared

 Lastly, I'll leave you with a pic of this sweet redhead :)
