No, I haven’t gone to be with the Lord.
Yes, I am still on Teen Missions staff.
The house next door came up for rent, so Rock, Deb and Ted live next door to me!
Craig gave all us a scare when he went into the hospital in Canada with Congestive Heart Failure. He is back at work and recovering. I wasn’t able to go to Canada as my passport had expired. I am so grateful that the miles that separate us from the people we love do not limit prayer. Please continue to pray for his total recovery!
I am so thankful the Lord brought me through a 10-day stay in the hospital with a
bout of e-coli. I missed all of the 2009 Super Boot Camp. They had me in an area for patients with MRSA; that tells me I should be oh-so-grateful that it was e-coli and NOT MRSA! I lost a lot of blood so I was anemic for some time.
I cannot praise the Lord enough that all of my children were here when I went into the hospital! Actually, they were here BEFORE I went to the hospital; so you can see they didn’t come because it was an emergency!
I thought I might have to sell my house to pay for my hospital stay as I only have Medicare A & B. I am making payments on each of my doctors’ and hospital accounts that accrued while there. Please pray I can get those taken care of soon.
I am so happy my granddaughter, Amber Rambo, has moved from Tennessee to
Florida to help me in so many ways, including “Driving Miss Daisy” when necessary. I do pretty well on my own otherwise. What a joy that Amber and I got to visit Steph at Christmas in Colorado where she is now working.
FaceBook — I thank the Lord for FaceBook — what most call a social network. For me it is a means whereby I can keep in touch with the alumni of Teen Missions and AIDS Orphans and Street Children. I am overjoyed with the kids and leaders the Lord brings to Teen Missions.
I had to put a new roof on my house this spring and redo one bathroom damaged because of the roof damage. It wasn’t done by storms, etc. – just an aging roof so it wasn’t covered by insurance.
Two of my grandsons, Julian and Tristan Will, are on the Malawi Preteen team this upcoming summer. Jules is the head male leader and Tristan is a team member. I will be so excited to see them at Boot Camp! Would you please pray for them? Thank you!
I am so very grateful for ALL OF MY PRAYER PARTNERS AND FINANCIAL SUPPORTERS. Your prayers often provide just what I need at the time of need, without your even knowing about it.
In His love and mine,
