If dad goes MIA from the hospital - this is where you can find him!

Dad's favorite location - in a boat at Smith Mt. Lake!!!


  1. That is great news! We will continue to keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

    Bill Nardi and the WRC Family

  2. I am so happy to know that the surgery went well.

    David and I wish you and your wonderful family lots of good times ahead.

  3. We have been praying daily since we heard, Bobby. We praise the Lord for what is seen already. I tried to comment the other day and got stuck so will try again.

    We claim 2 Chronicles 20:17 for you!

    Love, Frank & Niki

  4. Hi Bobby & Elaine,
    We are following your progress from Montana. It is encouraging to see that God truly does give Grace as we need it.
    He is Lord!
    Gary & Kathy Hickle

  5. OK, you didn't take me up on my offer for outpatient surgery, and I'll admit now that maybe it was a little beyond my ability...;)

    BUT "Is anything too hard for the Lord?" Genesis 18:14 I am praying for His power to be felt by you and your entire wonderful family!

    Practical Steps to Making Heart Connections by Jason Craig

    So last week I wrote an article on different types of connections and what they mean, at least to me. This week, as I have been thinking about these connections, I have come to the conclusion that I don’t have a “5 Steps To Building Relationships” piece of wisdom to share with you. I don’t have a twelve step plan which if you follow step-by-step will mean that at the end of the steps you will have a life-long friend.

    I don’t know those steps, and I don’t own a book that has those steps in it. So what can I share with you today.

    I’d like to share some observations from events of this week. On Monday I, like many of you, received the earth shaking news that a dear friend and brother, Bobby Snow, was in hospital undergoing tests for a brain tumor. Like many of you, as soon as I heard the news I turned to God and said, “this is not the end, give Bobby life.” I have a flexible schedule and so I was able to head over to the hospital for a little while on Monday to sit with the family and to let them know that I cared for them and for Bobby. I never saw Bobby or Elaine for that matter, but I wanted to be there. As I was getting ready to leave, two dear friends of Elaine’s arrived, my mum and Susan Bailey. As I was on the road driving home I got a phone call that Brad and Kristy had been to visit, that Pastor Ray had been to visit, that Bobby and Elaine’s pastor, Pastor Mark had been there, and as the day went on more and more people went to the hospital to be with Bobby and Elaine, to pray, and to let them know that they are loved.

    I don’t know what the “5 Steps” are, but Bobby and Elaine obviously do. The report this morning on the Snow’s blog site said that as they were taking Bobby to surgery there were some 30 friends and family in the waiting area that the nurses had to maneuver Bobby’s bed through. What is it that drives that many people to immediately rearrange their lives? What is it that causes people to drop everything they had planned to do, in order that they could be at a hospital waiting room – to do nothing more than let the Snow family know that they were loved.

    That is true HEART CONNECTION!

    The Snow family are exceptional people, in so much that they seem to have made heart connections with half of Bowie. But, on the other hand, they are the most ordinary family around. What you see is what you get – and what you see are people who love people. Do you know folks like that? Are you like that? I wish I was more like that. I wish I was more interested in loving people when I meet them as opposed to wondering what area of ministry I can plug them into. This year I want to look at people and love who they are. I want to make heart connections with the people I meet. Maybe that is step one – the desire to do so. As I look at Bobby and Elaine, the rest of the steps seem pretty simple – Step Two – Love People, Step Three – Love People; Step Four – Love People; Step Five – Love People.

    Maybe this is really what Jesus was talking about when He said, ‘My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.’ John 15:12

    Or maybe it was Peter intent when he wrote, ‘Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.’ 1 Peter 4:8

    I think loving one another is a good place to start. But remember, love is an action, not a phrase

  13. Yay!!! Very good news! Nice to know you'll still be with us!
