From Wes - Something is going on with Nate. He did not have a bowel movement for a week. It took a lot of laxatives and prayers for it to finally happen. He sometimes screams about his stomach having sharp pains. He goes back in to see the doctor tomorrow. He also gets very down sometimes and just wants to sleep. These could all be effects of post-radiation or depression or just plain not feeling good, but it could be something much more serious such as the cancer spreading to other parts of his body. We are scared, because we are told it could be so many things. Please share with others to pray for his little body to be healed and for him to be happy. He does play and enjoys part of the day, and then he seems to crash and wants to just lay there. We know that God is good and can do anything, please pray that he will heal Nate. Please keep praying and do not give up, HE keeps healing Nate and Nate keeps fighting every time everyone gets together and prays, it has always worked so far. Thanks.


  1. Thanks for the update. I am praying....I am praying.

  2. My son was in a wedding this weekend and he wore his iPray t-shirt to the rehearsal dinner. I was able to share Nate's story with an unbeliever who inquired about the little boy mentioned on my son's shirt. I could tell that Nate's testimony and the support that the Oxford's are receiving from the Lord's family was moving to him.

    I know you don't know us. We are the Buckner family and we attend the FLC service at the Farmers Branch campus. We do pray for Nate's health and we share his story when the opportunity arises. I thought you would want to know that his life is not only touching so many others but is a witness to the lost.

    Be Blessed,
    Leena, Kris, Sam and Jack
