Snake Bites Can Be Good

...AKA Words you never thought you'd hear me say.

Earlier this month I asked you to pray for missionaries. One of my friends in Uganda had been bitten by a snake and needed prayer for complete healing. Later she wrote on her Facebook page that the bite was actually a blessing because she had been taking a lot of bus rides (her motorcycle was waiting for a new battery) and had developed DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Without the extra medical attention she was getting because of her toe, she may never have found out and it could have killed her. What a miracle!!

When I wrote my last post about taking things one at a time, I was actually in bed with yet another case of malaria. Being down at this time of year is tough. Browsing posts from this month in years past shows a clear pattern of me being behind in my work and/or being down with malaria.

I'm recovered now and back at work. I'm ready to press forward and get everything done.

What exactly must be done? Well, I leave for the U.S in two weeks so there's that....

  • We have to get all our promotional materials ready--video, brochures, posters, etc.

  • I need to leave the office in perfect order so Tom can find anything he needs while I'm away.

  • All of our paperwork has to be in order for taxes and filing and all the stuff that comes with running a charity. 

  • Jasmine has to pack up her life and get ready for a big move to start college in the fall.

It's a lot to do in 2 weeks, but by God's grace it will all get done!

    The Lord works in such mysterious ways. My sister ended up having to have a c-section with her last baby, which she was so upset about, but they ended up finding a mass while they were doing the c-section and they removed it at the same time and she has had no other problems because they were able to get it all.
    Imagine if she hadn't had the c-section!
