Two weeks and counting. Does it get any easier? No.
I’m not crying as often as I was…but that’s because I have hope. Hope that, yes, she is still alive, being held somewhere against her will.
The media coverage has increased and we’re even busier than we were before, but this is a very good thing because it means Susan’s face and story are reaching even more people.
In fact, I have been so touched, uplifted, and strengthened over the past few days as messages of support and love have poured in from all over the United States and across the world.
I’d like to share some of these messages here…these all come from the Facebook group, Friends and Family of Susan Powell.
Susan and the Boys are in my prayers!! The whole state of Iowa is hoping Susan is home in time for Christmas!!! Stay strong in faith and may God bless you and your family!!!
Our prayers are with you, family and friends of Susan Powell…we may not know you but our faith is the same and we are thinking of you as we follow the story from TX
Susan….tonight is surely not a "silent night", voices all over the world are singing and praying for you. We miss you.

Image of friends and loved ones supporting Susan Powell’s safe return. Even in the coldest and darkest nights we will hold on to hope and pray for her return. We love you Susan.
Dearest Friend and Family of Susan Powell, the cold and the ice here in Renville Galway Ireland was to dangerous for people to gather as I had planned, the ice started at 6pm and I could not even get over to my love of my life Celine’s house at 2am, so we all did our candle vigil for Susan on our own listening to Dean …Martin singing Silent Night, Josef Mohr would have been so proud of all this outpouring from across the globe for Susan. I know that Susan has heard us. With great respect and love to you and Susan’s family.
Our prayers to find Susan and bring her home. Heartfelt hugs to Susan’s family and friends from Branson, Missouri. May they find comfort during this difficult time.
From the mountains of Western North Carolina, I add my prayers to yours. The trials of this family break my heart. May God bless all and return Susan to her loved ones.

We are gathered tonight to join in a united prayer heard around the world. At this same moment across the globe, people are praying for Susan and her family in:
The United Kingdom
Various parts of Utah
We join Susan’s family and friends in Puyallup, Washington to light a candle of hope for Susan. We have not given up and we will not give up until we bring Susan home.
