James Bayless kidney transplant

In October of 2014, James was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that sent his body into renal failure. James lost both kidneys and has been doing dialysis 3 times a week for the past 4 years. James was put on the transplant list in 2015. Many prospective donors have tested but not met the requirements needed to proceed. After many hours of prayer and an army of prayer warriors on their knees a qualified donor has been found. My wife, Shelly has been cleared to donate a kidney to James(what a miracle) The surgery for both James and Shelly will take place on Sept. 19th in Ft. Worth. All donations raised will be used only for expenses; hotels, food, transportation during and following the transplant, for both will have to stay in Ft Worth area for several weeks(James 6-8weeks)following the procedure. Anything not used for the previous reasons will be used on medications (anti-rejection meds) that James will need for a long period of time following surgery. 
THANK YOU in advance for your unselfish blessing and prayers before and after this new journey begins. This is not about us, this is all about the mercy, grace and power of our Lord and savior to whom we give all the glory.
THANK YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU  AND YOURS!
