Greetings from the Philippines. In our last update we asked for prayer for our trip here. Thank you for praying for us. We had a safe, uneventful trip… up to the other day.
Laura came down with a bad cold and I thought I had a thorn or something embedded in my foot. So, off to see the doctor… Laura’s cold is just that, a virus, that hopefully will be gone within another week. What I thought was embedded in my foot turned out to be shingles! I guess if there is a “good place” to have shingles it’s in the foot. The doctor prescribed some antiviral medication and after scrapping ourselves up off the floor when the pharmacist told us the price, we made our purchase and so far, praise the Lord, the symptoms have not gotten any worse. I’m thankful that it isn’t painful, just a bit of discomfort.
We postponed our flight into the village twice due to our illnesses and needing rest, but we are preparing to fly tomorrow, Friday! Please continue to pray for us as we settle into “village life” again and as Lance gets to work on the initial checking of 1 & 2 Kings. Ron and Michelle will be going to town to attend to some medical things as well as take a break. Once they are back, we will be working on Joshua.
No, we cannot do this but certainly God can! Matthew 19:26 “…with God all things are possible.” And one of our favorite verses Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Thank you for partnering with us!
Secure in Christ alone,
Lance & Laura
