Joe was bitten by our cat on his right hand Feb. 7 and ended up with a very nasty infection that became septic and spread up his entire arm, landing him in the hospital for 11 days.
Talk about unexpected.
We’re still reeling a bit from the after glow of his recent injury and the fact that it is taking so long to heal.
But we experienced God’s Presence in the hospital in many ways and continue to look for Him in the every day.
You know Joe and his humor, so picture all the nurses and staff coming in to visit him, probably a little more often than most, because even through his pain, he was still his crazy funny self.
I love that about him.
He had some deep conversations with some of the nurses about the Holy Spirit; he gave some marital advice to a male nurse. He even sang a little to one of the nurses. Not surprised are you?
We both fell in love with many of the staff there. A smile, extra hug, a thank you, a whispered prayer, are little things in and of themselves, but when done as unto the Lord, can become big in the Kingdom.
Joe continues to heal at home. it’s been over 3 weeks and he’s still on antibiotics. The swelling continues to go down a little each day. He had a follow up visit with the Doctor yesterday and she agreed it looked better and cleared him to travel.
Which we will do tomorrow!
Thank you Lord!
We leave in the morning for a revival in Independence, Mississippi, which starts Sunday morning and goes through Wednesday evening, March 3-6th.
Please join us in prayer for a move of the Holy Spirit in these meetings. We can plan and schedule a “revival” on the calendar but there is no way man can manufacture it, it has to be a work of the Spirit. But we can pray and ask for Him to move; to lead people to trust Christ as Savior; to revive the hearts of those weary with religion, to lead others to repentance through his wonderful kindness, and to bring us all to a greater revelation of his holiness.
As you pray, give thanks to God for what He will do. We will praise Him for His goodness.
Thank you for taking time to read this and for praying with us and for us. Thank you for your generosity in giving. We are more aware than ever that your giving to this ministry, financially and in prayer, are the fuel to our going. It is indeed a partnership we have together in the Gospel; all for the glory of Christ.
We love you and thank our God upon every remembrance of you.
