Here is a quick update so you can be praising and praying with us…
Bones: Bill’s Knee
It took a couple months, but Bill was able to see a rheumatologist. A mere 4 hours (yes, FOUR HOURS) after the first dose of prednisone, the PAIN WAS GONE! The doctor has already almost completely weaned Bill off the prednisone and we’re hoping the pain will not return. Please pray about that.
Kids: Tomorrow’s Missionaries?
This morning we were able to share with several youth groups who were doing a work project in Tijuana Mexico with a ministry called Caravans. Bill talked about how God worked in his life to become a missionary. Please pray that God will continue to speak to those kids’ hearts and that they will respond to let him use their lives however he desires.
Skin: Bill’s Face
It’s not as dangerous as Donna’s recent melanoma, but Bill’s dermatologist found a basal cell carcinoma on his face. He’s had several of these in the past. Tomorrow he will be getting a MOHS procedure to remove this one. The last time Bill had a MOHS (on his forehead in 2019), his face swelled up for a few days like he’d been in the ring with a heavyweight boxer. Please pray that this time they will get all the cancer, but that Lord willing, the recovery won’t be so long or painful.
Our next update will move away from health issues and feature some good news… we’ll share how the Palawan church is thriving, young men are helping to lead the church, and how they are using the Palawano translation!

Tina Bork says
Love to hear about your lives. Still working and will most likely never retire.
Bill and Donna Davis says
Okay, just a quick note to say THANK YOU for praying! Bill’s procedure went well, and compared to last time (2019) the procedure’s post-op was much less traumatic… NO pain, and only minimal swelling under his left eye, with a bit of a black eye (other colors, too!)
Stay tuned for the “real” update coming soon on the Palawano church.
