Dear friends,

Well, life sure took a sharp curve all of a sudden and I thought I’d write a quick update while I can!

For the past few days I have been experiencing some very strange medical symptoms—the worst being tremendous vertigo and also numbness in my face and scalp. I’ve also had terrible nausea probably due to the vertigo. I’ve been in bed the past 2 days and just today was able to walk a few steps, with help, over to Laureti’s house to get online. Laureti’s have been taking very good care of me and I don’t know what I would have done without their help, to say the least.

We have been communicating with our mission doctor and he has been talking with a doctor at the Mayo Clinic, so they put a medevac in motion to take me out of Lele and to Australia as soon as possible. Pray that I will be able to make it to the airstrip on my own 2 feet and not traumatize the whole village (and myself) by having to be carried!!

I’m not too sure what to expect in the days ahead, but I know for sure that the Lord will be with me every step of the way. I have dear friends in Australia who will also be there to help me with Dr. appointments etc, so I will certainly be well taken care of.

This song has been playing in my head this afternoon…..The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen could ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell…..Could we with ink the ocean fill or were the skies of parchment made. Were every stalk on earth a quill or every man a scribe by trade…To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry. Nor could the scroll contain the whole though spread from sky to sky.

Resting in the love of God tonight.

Much love to you all.
