Unknowns

“Have no fear of moving into the unknown.  Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I (God) am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well.  Do this in complete faith and confidence.” -Pope John Paul II


Friends,

Our life is full of unknowns right now.  Yet, at our core, we are very, very well.  Life feels a bit prickly right now, but that is to be expected in the wilderness.

We have spent the last several days traveling from Phoenix to Green Valley to Sonoita (pronounced sew-NOY-tuh), to Sedona.  Whew!  We are regrouping in Sedona for the next few days, as the last few days have felt quite chaotic, with no room to cook or do laundry or really rest much at all (hence our lack of blog posts over the last few days).

Below are some questions and answers to some basic questions you might ask if you could sit and chat with us.

HOW DID YOU (MARIAH) FEEL IN THESE PLACES?

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to this link to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)! 

I did not feel good in Green Valley at all.

I did not feel well in Sonoita either.

The Phoenix and Tucson areas are highly problematic for people with CIRS, as we now know first hand.

We are learning SO much about my body and what it is saying. Travis is learning to listen to what his body is telling him too, and he has often felt less well in the places that I feel terrible in.  This is confirmation ot both of us that we are on the right track.

Sedona feels good.  The air feels good here and there are resources for groceries, etc.  The people in Sedona are very intentional about limiting light pollution and pollution in general, which is a gift to the earth and a gift to those who are in need of healing.

HOW CAN WE PRAY FOR YOU?

HOUSING: We beseech you for your prayers as we stay in Sedona over the next several days.  If the Lord has a place for us here, may he make it known. We would very much like to settle, take our things out of the car, unpack our clothing boxes, and begin my medical protocols.  It needs to be a home with no water damage, that is removed enough from traffic where exhaust is not an issue.

STRENGTH: Please pray for strength to be ours as we continue on this journey.  You can throw in a prayer request for laughter to be ours too. 🙂  Thank you.

HAS YOUR INSURANCE DECIDED TO COVER YOUR CIRS MEDS YET?

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to this link to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)! 

No.  My doctor at Cleveland Clinic is trying to get a different medication covered through my insurance.  We are hoping that our insurance approves this medication request from my doctor.  If not, we will look to Canada or Mexico as sources for this medication.

CAN WE SEE SOME PICTURES OF YOUR TRAVELS OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS?

Sure!

This is the area between Phoenix and Tucson (below).  Very smoggy.  I had to wear my respirator during the drive between these two cities because the air was so polluted, and I still felt awful.

Green Valley, AZ:



Sonoita, AZ (below).  We did not stay at this inn, because we heard from other CIRS patients that it is moldy, but we stayed down the road at a guest house.  The nearest stop light was 30 miles away from us in Sonoita.  It felt quite dusty in Sonoita.

  I LOVE the purple cactus plants here in Arizona!  (Note: When you sit this close to a cactus plant, you WILL get thorns in your behind, and you WILL be picking the thorns out for hours!)

We press on in hope!  Keep hoping with us.

With great love,

Mariah and Travis

Thank you so much for walking with us, praying for us, laughing with us, crying with us, and standing with us in hope that healing is possible and we are in the process of finding the path that will lead us to it!

  1. Spent a little time in Green Valley during the intercultural immersion trip…lovely! So glad you are finding a place that is finally feeling good to you! Praying for housing that is ideal and for a chance to unpack and begin the regiment of healing. Go God…amaze us again…

  2. Hey Mariah and Travis,
    My husband and I found out about you through talking with Andrea Fabry who we recently got to know through Samaritan Ministries. We are also going through health issues after being in a home with mold, my husband Garison especially. I want you to know that you all are not alone in this as we too are newlyweds. We were married last November. We are also Christians. We will pray for you both to have wisdom and that the Lord will provide your needs. Thank you for letting others know how to pray for you both.

    Love,
    Amy and Garison

  3. I have been reading your posts and praying for you both. Sedona is beautiful. Matt and I got engaged there so it will always be a special place for us.

    • Debbie!! Great to hear from you! We still haven’t been out in Sedona during daylight hours yet, so we haven’t experienced the true Sedona experience. Tomorrow. So fun to know you got engaged here! It’s an enchanted place, to be sure.

  4. My aunt had to move with her husband and five children to Tucson years ago for her rheumatoid arthritis. It helped some as it was so dry. However, visiting family there now, I agree that the air is not as clean as it used to be.
    I had thought of Sedona for you, with its beautiful creek running through it. Do check out if the mountains would trap any smog at different times of the year, especially the busy tourist season. However, there are huge open spaces out of the city area too. The native people did well there, wouldn’t it be fun and a blessing if you could find your spot too.
    Gary and I visited a nice museum home there in Sedona. If you have not been there and can tolerate being in that area, I think you’d love the story of the history of the place.
    As always, thanks for the update. It is appreciated. The pictures are delightful too. God is with you on your journey. May you continue to follow His leading in this wilderness journey. Smiles and hugs along with prayers.
