Our friends, Jan and Mark Lacher, received a new diagnosis for their youngest son recently: Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.  It is a catastrophic epilepsy with no cure. Here is a portion of their email, which I am using with Jan’s permission.  Please read it – especially linger over the last paragraph – and marvel at God’s sustaining […]

I received this encouraging text from Jan Lacher yesterday: Last week, Michael’s team leader approached me and said that all the leadership in Connection (Connection is the Wednesday evening service) want Michael in his class no matter how noisy he is.   I took him out at one point because he was extremely loud.  She […]

Thank you to Jan Lacher for pointing me to this story. Wouldn’t it be great if a national politician said something like this? I do not understand why the unborn are unprotected, permitting them to be aborted, because of the fact that they have some kind of handicap or deformity. A politician did say it!  Spanish […]

From Pastor John MacArthur’s sermon, Taking the Mystery Out of Knowing God’s Will, delivered July 16, 2006: God wills our suffering. That’s right. God wills our suffering because he knows what it does for us. Back in (1 Peter 2:20) he says, “If you do what is right and suffer for it and endure that […]

I found a booklet written by Jan Lacher when she was still pretty new to parenting a child with a disability as Michael was quite young.  Knowing what Michael and the entire family have gone through since this was first written, and seeing the evident faith in Jan and Mark that has continued to grow, […]

Jan Lacher forwarded me the Journal of Medical Ethics editorial response to the negative comments they are receiving on the article they published, After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? (Yes, I know, I just wrote yesterday not to give this more attention than it deserves.) I’m not even sure where to begin! Even considering […]

I kind of doubt anyone will really notice the changes, however! Several months ago a friend pointed out that the tagline, ‘the volunteer disability ministry blog of Bethlehem Baptist Church,’ wasn’t really true. I could see her point. More than three years ago we decided to start a blog for the disability ministry at Bethlehem. […]

Another encouraging word from Jan Lacher. Please note how much Jan invests in both the church and in Michael.  It isn’t always possible, I know.  I’m not even suggesting it is always wise.  That’s why every engagement in the church that needs to be different because of disability should be prayed for ‘without ceasing,’ asking […]

Every year during the Advent season, Bethlehem Baptist Church invites the children entering fourth grade to participate in carrying an advent candle to the front of the sanctuary.  It is taken very seriously by Bethlehem. And Bethlehem welcomes the children with disabilities to participate! This year, Michael Lacher, son to Mark and Jan Lacher, entered […]

Thank you to Jan Lacher for pointing me to this article by Elizabeth Elliot. I deeply appreciate Elizabeth Elliot, and this article written in 1989, There Are No Accidents, Says Judy, just adds to my regard for her.  She is writing and quoting her friend, Judy Squier, a woman born without legs. Some of the […]
