A Sick One in Thailand

If you would please pray for Chelsea I would really appreciate it.
She caught a stomach bug that others on the team have had.
It seems to have kept her down longer than we would have 
expected.  Thankfully today she is beginning to feel some better, 
but she has a very long trip coming up this weekend.  
They drive, by bus, approximately fourteen hours from Chiang Mai
to Bangkok.  Please pray with us that she will be fully recovered
and that other team members aren't sick for this journey. 
I can imagine little worse than having a stomach illness while
traveling by bus.  

And while I'm asking for prayer....
Jonathan will get an injection in his spine today
to see if they can get him relief for a herniated disc.
He lives with such severe pain at all times and if 
this helps it would be such a blessing.
It would mean so much to him to have normal 
movement and pain relief.

Tomorrow is the day set aside for thankfulness.
We will rejoice in the goodness of our Lord and 
all He has done.  He provides everything we need.
There is no question on this.

Sometimes His ways are not our own.
Such as Michael's broken collar bone.
But I can tell you that good things, 
very good things, have come as a result of 
this trial in his life.  Maybe one day I'll be able 
to share more.  In fact, I'm pretty sure that 
I'll be sharing more with you in the near future.

Have a wonderful day.
Happy Thanksgiving....
in case I don't post tomorrow.
But I just might.

Praying for your family, dear friend, and thanking the Lord with you for his goodness to us. It's so good to know we can always trust him with those we love, isn't it?

Clarence is having skin cancer removed again today (the first time didn't get it all) so I'll be thinking of and praying for you and yours while I'm waiting as you'll probably be waiting at the same time.

Happy Thanksgiving to your family, in case I don't get back here to say it tomorrow!

Vee said... sorry that Chelsea has been ill and very good to know that she is on the mend. Will pray for strength and restoration. Praying for Jonathan, too. Back pain, I understand. And I am glad that God uses everything for His purposes.

A blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving to you and yours.

How is Chelsea feeling? Praying she's all better and that the injection gives Jonathan some releif.
