Today we had angelic help from nurses, doctors, gifted massage & energy workers, and very knowledgable dear friends. I have felt a little anxious that there was more we could do all along, but couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was. Then we explored long enough with some incredibly willing & capable physicians to discover a way to literally irrigate Max’s skin with natural solutions 3 times a day and only change dressings once a day. Miracle #?!! i’ve lost track:) Max has been told that he will serve many “missions. Maybe he was “called on his mission 2 days ago and now he gives his all reminding you & I to believe in the miracles that are coming to be today, tomorrow, 1 month, 1 year, & 3 years from now.

  7. Thank you, Natalie, for another inspiring update. It is so great to hear of progress.

    Thank you, Max, for an opportunity to fast in a more others-focused way this Sunday. My day today is better because of you.

    Thank you, Goddard family, for your willingness to be transparent as you openly and humbly share your burden in the midst of this tremendously challenge. Your love and trust is not taken lightly. (Far too many I have known and worked with unknowingly inhibit mental, spiritual, and even physical healing through their refusal to open up in the midst of pain.)

    And ultimately, thank you, Father, for your peace and miracles. We might not always understand, but there is forever victory, wholeness, and joy through your Son, whose words forever resonate in my soul: “Thy will be done.”

  8. Dear Max,

    When they look at you, your parents see a teen-aged boy, but God sees an ancient, eternal, indestructible spirit!

    Job once said: “…when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10) May these words comfort you:

    “When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply.
    The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design …
    Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine…..

    “The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
    I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
    That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, …
    I’ll never, no never, no never forsake!”


    May God be with you and bless you with strength and healing, Max!
    With love and prayers,
    Kim (You don’t know me but I am Karyn G.’s sis.)

  9. Nothing happens in our lives without God using it for His good when we allow Him to lead us through it. Praying for Max and you as Max walks this journey. I agree with you that he will see many things in the coming days, months, and years that show that God was with him all the way through it. Bless your child.

  10. Max- you and your beautiful family are on mission to help us all bring beautiful healing to our broken world. Thank you- be at peace and be well.

  11. What a miracle it is to have in your life so many people. It is a testament to me of the need to open my life and heart to many who i can bless and who can bless me as well. It is the purpose of life, right? I am sorry that Max has to go through this. I have a 15 year old son who is full of life and creative genius so this hits a nerve with me. But tell your sweet boy that although he has to endure this, it will not be in vain. I am sure that i am not the only person who will forever be changed by seeing these miracles. This was just what I needed to read today as an answer to one of my prayers. Who knew that Fasting for Max could be the answer to my own personal struggles. Blessings to you all.

  12. My 4 year old prayed today…”thank you that Max can get better.” I’m adding my faith to hers and yours. So grateful for the power of prayer. For the comfort of the Spirit & of angels. For the blessings we have in the oils. And thankful to you for all you’ve given to us and for sharing this journey with your sweet son with us.

  13. Psalm 30:2 – Oh Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. I ask that the healing hand of the Lord hear the call for help and heal Max. That He be with you and your family as you go through this. That with the prayers and the oils and the support you are brought through this. Praying.

  14. All of your Auburn friends continue to pray for Max and for your family. The events of the last four days have been amazing and you have witnessed many miracles first hand. I pray that Max will continue to heal and that the pain will be diminished. (I caught on fire when I was eleven–nearly 60 years ago–and was severely burned on my side but, fortunately, my burns did not cover nearly as much of my body as Max’s. I do recall the pain and was not treated with essential oils.)

  15. Praying for Max today and until he recovers. God is good now and always. I will use this terrible accident to share with my grandchildren. In Gods love jan in Boise Id.

  16. God will continue to heal Max. He has begun the progress and he will not leave him. Keep praying and expecting Max to recover. He will be in my prayers until he is well.

  17. You are in our prayers. Angel is writing a note to Matt, as we just found out. Matt, you are an incredible optimist and only the spirit gives you this gift. Thank you for being who you are.

  18. You don’t know me but I just saw this and thought to let you know your in my prayers. My son was badly burned on his face 10 years ago and through miracles and awesome drs who were no doubt guided in his care he has no visible scarring!! Strength to you and your son and family. May God be with you all!!

  19. I am so grateful for your faith and knowledge to help your son on one of his many missions. I feel heavens love for him and your family as I pray for him . Prayers are so powerful. God is good.

  20. I too believe in miracles! Keep praying and using your oils! I’m a nurse and I believe we can’t just treat the body we must treat the whole person! Good luck!

  21. We are fasting today in Max’s behalf. Our love and prayers go our for Max, the family, and his caretakers. His name is on the prayer roll at the Portland, OR temple.

  22. May the Lord keep a host of angels around Max and his family during this time of need. Let him use Max to teach others about the healing power of prayer AND essential oils. I pray that the miraculous pure essential oils do their amazing work on Max’s burns and on his soul. Goddard Family – You have been in my thoughts and in my prayers since I heard of Max’s accident and I have spread the word through my legion of prayer warriors to pray that the Lord’s will be honored in this time, whatever it may be. Love to all of you.

  23. We hold you Gods Hands. We Place You Buddha’s Lap. We Surround In Love, and in Gods Guidance. Max is Blessed. He is A Profound Lesson for Us All, As Are You as His Loving, Smart Parents, Guides in Life.
    We All Pray For The Best Possible Outcome.
    Fight On, Max

  24. I want you all to know that God does answers prayer. when my niece Helen Mc Donald mentioned about Max knowing today was Fast and Testimony meeting I knew God does hear our prayers. I also asked my brothers and sister to fast with us in behalf of your son, God bless you as you deal with the challenges that are before you as Max heals and life moves forward for you all.

  25. Natalie & Andy, I don’t know if you remember me but you made a lasting impression on me many years ago. 13 yrs ago I live across the street from you with my two boys. You had us over for dinner and introduced me to whole wheat tortillas and cumin supplements. I now use whole wheat tortillas regularly and use black seed oil daily but most important was your patience, unconditional love and demeanor that impressed me the most. Max was a toddler then. We are fasting and praying for him from Virginia.

  26. Hi my cousin was in a fire a year ago my family also saw many miracles while she was at the burn center I hope you all know that you are in our prayers
