I know many of you have already asked us how you can pray for us, and I realized today I haven’t done a very good job of giving you specific things to pray for. I was reminded this morning how quickly health can turn, even though the scare was thankfully just a learning experience – don’t take my malaria meds in the morning! I was fine one minute and then laying on the bathroom floor (which here for sure is not a good place to be laying) throwing up and feeling like I was going to die. Christian found me and it scared him until I remembered that I had taken the meds an hour before because I forgot to last night. I thought it would be okay since I ate breakfast. Feeling better now, but it did make me think about our health, and how quickly things can turn, and how little medical help we have here.
So, forgive me for not being specific, and thank you that there are prayer warriors out there, asking for God’s protection on our behalf.
Today, when you have a minute, please pause and pray for us and our community. Here are some things for today:
Our driver, who we appreciate so much right now since Christian hasn’t begun to drive, has a sixteen year old daughter who has been very very ill and in the “hospital” here. At first they thought it was strep throat, and she seemed better, but yesterday took a turn for the worse. It sounds to us like it might be pneumonia, but with so many sicknesses here it is hard to tell. Please pray the doctors have the wisdom to find out the cause and for her total healing.
The sun came out and the workers are hard at it. Please pray for their safety as they climb ladders and are on the roofs of the buildings.
Pray that our generators will work and stay working so that tools can be used. (P.S. as I was typing this post, I heard the generator come to life! God is so good to answer our prayers!)
Pray for our health, so far until today, we have been healthy and happy! Pray that it remains that way. We have a 5 year old who cannot keep her hands off of everything and her fingers out of her mouth!
And above all, pray that as we do our daily work, and Christian is helping the guys, we can be examples of Christ to them and be able to share the light and the joy that we have in Christ.
