When Anita's parents heard of the trial she is going through, Anita's dad helped her mom "fire up the magic carpet" (he bought her a plane ticket from Johannesburg to L.A.). She arrived on Friday night and came directly to the U.C.L.A. Medical Center.
We are glad to have "mommy" here now. Anita has been discharged from the hospital and on Saturday we were reunited with our children in the mission house. Anita is beginning to recover. Over the past two days, she has experienced three mild seizures - they are much less intense than the ones she was experiencing in the hospital.
Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray that her diagnosis is correct and that God uses the steps we are taking towards recovery to heal her body. We know that there are many who are following these updates and praying for us - and we believe that prayer is the means that God uses to bring about His will.
This morning I took the kids to church while Anita's mom (a former nurse) stayed home to look after her. While at church, a lady (whom I did not recognize) walked up to me, wagged her finger at me and said, "You said you would update the blog YESTERDAY!" Please forgive me for leaving you all hanging. We value your prayer and feel all of your arms hugging us from afar. We are thankful that Anita's mom is here and thankful for our church family all over the world.
