Update – Monday plans

Posted Sunday 7.30p PT / 5.30A Kiev time

It’s about 5a in Kiev, and I just got some updates – this time from Randy.

He’s been really thankful and impressed with all the generous help we’ve been getting.

He says words like “tremendous” and “spectacular” and I know he’s right. He contacted the hospitals, in person this time, and it seems they feel a bit overwhelmed, kind of like the Embassy.  “The hospital and morgues have been contacted so many times, that they know the story by heart.

He says they have been following up on every lead possible, every sighting.
Someone had claimed to see Dad in one of the Cathedrals. Randy went there and spoke with the head rector, and everyone on the staff. They even assisted by calling the staff that were not there yesterday and talking to them too.

I’m told that as many as 50,000 flyers are being prepared to be posted around Kiev, along with the 5000+ already out there. Fifty thousand! [His name might just be on every lip, at least in Kiev, before this is over! When they say “Jay Sloop” it sounds really funny to our ears though. 🙂 ]

Jay’s disappearance has been in the news numerous times there and we’re told that there will be another story tomorrow – a human interest story, I’m told.

While we don’t have any new leads, tomorrow we will continue to investigate all the places Jay was known to visit while out walking etc. One friend of his recalled another place they had walked and we plan to check that location thoroughly – it’s fairly close to the park we have already searched.

So, Monday will be another incredibly busy day. It looks like it will be a warm [but not too hot] day, with little to no rain, at least until tonight. That should be a help for people who are outside.

I’m sure I’m missing some things – but I can always come back and post later.

Keep everyone, the lost and the searchers, in your prayers. We all need it.

    We prayed at each session this weekend at our Women’s Retreat. And we will continue as long as Dr. Jay is missing. Many of the attendees know Doctor and are all lifting him up in prayer.

    Our family continues to keep Jay and all of your family in our daily thoughts and prayers. Over the years Jay has been a wonderful Christian friend and mentor to us. We have shared many serious talks as well as laughs together. God has used him and his family to touch so many lives in a positive way. We trust that God will make something good come out of this horrible situation, and hopefully Dr. Jay will return to his Yakima family home very soon. We miss his smiling face.

    I fasted and prayed again today. If God saved Daniel in the Lion’s Den and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace, He can save Jay. I am praying for a miracle!
