Since our last prayer letter, it has been a different season than usual to report to you. Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 3 that there was a time to break down and a time to build up. After receiving some counseling from our doctor in Haiti in late January, I placed myself under the care of a urologist in the Fayetteville, North Carolina, area. On February 28, a needed procedure was performed to correct an issue, which the doctor believes was successful. I am to have another procedure on March 15, and then we will be looking at a date to return to the field.
Our lodging has not been a problem these past weeks while Stateside. Before arriving in North Carolina, we were courteously treated by our daughter Kara in the West Palm Beach, Florida, area. Our son Kirby (stationed at Fort Bragg) and his wife Crystal have opened their home in the Fayetteville area. Our other children have graciously offered their help as well. “Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.” (Psalm 127:5)
As far as expenses are involved, I do believe that Medicare and Samaritan Ministries will absorb most, if not all, of the medical costs.
Theresa and I have seen God’s hand in many matters. We praise the Lord for His timing and provision during this season!
Thank you once again for partnering with us. We appreciate your investment in our ministry.
