Dear praying friends,
I thank the Lord for your fellowship in the gospel and the joy of your friendship. Is it beginning to look like fall around you?
We’re enjoying the beauties of God’s creation here in central Ohio at this season.
God brought me safely to Ohio August 29, to help my dear senior parents pack and move to a new home. So much STUFF, and difficult decisions. We all are well. Emotions are up and down, and we pray for God’s peace and wisdom as we thank Him for His bountiful care. We received the keys last Friday (4823 Hazelton Etna Rd SW Pataskala OH 43062) and will set a moving day after a contractor makes some adjustments in the house, necessary for seniors. We appreciate your prayers that God will keep us moving forward with faith, wisdom, protection and thankful hearts.
Years ago I had the joy to meet and become friends with a lady physician in Lexington, SC. Dr Jo has continued working as a psychiatrist in the Lexington area, but God has also called her to share her professional care with needy people in Haiti. For a good number of years she’s been able to come to our hospital/clinic every 6 months, bringing gifts of medication and prayers of scripture to share with her patients. We’ve seen many patients with faces of fear and disoriented thoughts return with big smiles and clear stories of changed lives.
Dr Jo has planned to come work in the clinic again for 2 weeks. She bought tickets to come October 23, but last week developed severe lower back pain.
This past Monday, she told me she planned to go to work there in Lexington, but would stand as she consulted her patients that day. Oh my.
Our clinic in Haiti needs to know by October 9, if they should make a radio announcement of Dr. Jo’s coming. The patient families can then call the clinic and make an appointment to see her.
Please pray with us for:
· GOD’S DIRECTION – Is it God’s will for her to come at this time?
· GOD’S HEALING FOR DR JO
In His care,
