The past year has been one of the most exciting and difficult in the lives of Nate and Crystal Oats. One of the family dreams was for Nate to one day be a head coach at the college level. This last year that dream was achieved. Yet, in recent months a challenge far greater than that has been placed in their lives. In the past month Crystal was diagnosed with double hit lymphoma. The road ahead for Nate, Crystal and their young girls will be difficult.  Treaments that will require days in the hospital and a demanding schedule for Nate will come with great challenges. We are asking you to do 2 important things. First, pray for Nate, Crystal, and the girls. Second, please consider giving. Crystal will be unable to handle many of the day to day tasks and we want to be able to fly family and friends out to be by her side and take care of the house and the girls. We want to be able to have meals ready and family ready to come alongside the girls. Nate and Crystal have poured themselves into many young lives and this is a chance to give back in their time of need.

Just wanted to give a quick update. I talked with Crystal today and they are so thankful for the support that has come in. They have been able to have some cleaning and filters placed in house that will help keep their house more friendly to the immune system. The big update is that a young lady has offered to come and stay with them for some time, which will be a huge blessing. It would be a blessing to pay her traveling expenses and give her something for her time. She has the ability to come for an extended time and is giving up her own pursuits to serve with Nate and Crystal! We are thanking God for His blessings on this journey.

Hello friends and family. I wanted to post so I can update you all on how things have been going. First I just want to say thank you! Thank you for all your prayers, for all your kind words and encouragement, for the food and gifts, and for the money people have given to my gofundme account ! I do not have adequate words to express how much I appreciate it!

So far I have had three chemo treatments and everything has gone perfectly. No nausea so far which I am so thankful for. My doctors and nurses have been wonderful. My biggest problem is that I feel like I should be working and caring for patients when during my hospital stay! My mom and Nate and many friends are taking care of the girls and the house so I have no worries. If anything I feel lazy and spoiled with all this pampering. Lol

I have been reading Romans chapter 8 which has been so meaningful and chock full of wonderful words from God. The verse I am concentrating on today is Romans 8:28
"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

And as Pastor Logan's used to say before chapel everyday. "This is the day the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glaaaaad in it.
