Get away

The kids have all been farmed out to friends for the weekend, except Ami who is staying with her Nanny. Brian and I are very excited about a couples' retreat that starts today and ends on Sunday. Rick Holland is the speaker and we look forward to hearing from God's Word and spending time with each other.

Please pray that my headaches and dizziness won't be bad so that we can enjoy the weekend. This will be the first major activity since coming out of hospital and so it will be a good test to see how we'll handle our trip home to Malawi in less than four weeks. Yay!

I have had one day this week with no headaches! I have also only experienced the body drain every other day. Lord willing, they will go away completely. Please continue to pray that if there is something wrong that we would find it out and even if we don't that we would trust God completely. PLEASE pray that I would be able to endure this trial patiently. I am finding it difficult to be joyful, especially when my head is pounding :( and my body is weak.

"Give thanks in ALL circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thess 5:18

"Do any of the worthless idols of the nation bring rain? Do the skies themselves send down showers? No, it is You, O Lord our God. Therefore our hope is in You, for You are the One Who does all this." Jer 14:22

"God... is the blessed controller of all things, the King over all kings and the Master of all masters." 1 Tim 6:15
