Daniel, a young man who was saved last year, and his cousin
Marcos, recently were riding their bicycles on a Sunday
afternoon. A drunk driver passed a car and hit Marcos.
Daniel saw the car coming and just had time to jump.
Marcos was taken to the hospital in critical condition and died
2 days later. Please pray for Daniel and the families.
It has been hard for him, especially knowing that Marcos had
never been saved.
May was what I've called our
"Morton Salt" or "When it Rains, It Pours" month. Starting
on Mother's Day, I was in the ER 6 times in two weeks.
What started as a minor discomfort escalated into a very
painfrul infection in a sabaceous cyst. After having it
lanced and stitched, the infection got worse. 4 surgeons and a
month later, the "soft spot": on the top of my head has finally
Just two weeks later after church, we had just
finished lunch at a favorite restaurant, Dean started saying he
was dizzy and it quickly went from just dizzy to
unconsciousness. We called an ambulance and he spent 8
hours in the same ER where I had gone 6 times! He started
responding after 30-40 minutes. All the tess they did at the
hospital came back negative. The cardiologist did an
echocardiogram and it showed a blockage of the right coronary
artery. The next day he had a heart cathorization and
there was no blockage! Answered prayer!! His cardiologist
is still doing more testing to try and find out the cause of the
initial problem, since he was unconscious so long. In all
of this, it never ceases to amaze me how the Lord "just
happened" to have so many people who were in the right place at
the right time. Isn't it just like Him to prepare the way
even before we call!!! We know that none of this "just
happened" and we are thankful for the Lord's protection and
answer to prayer.
Are we discouraged . . . NO! We
are both doing okay now. Are we quitting . . . NO!
Just praying that we don't have any more surprises right away!
Still joyfully serving,
