Recuperated, Refreshed,& Revived

500691342-sick-cartoon-imagesIt has now been around three weeks since a sickness pummeled me and left me flat on my back. Many of our Haitian friends were sick too. Virus. Epidemic. Malady. Satanic attack. These were many of the words that came to my mind during this trial. The only way I can describe how I felt is that I had been hit by a steam roller, a freight train, and a Mack truck all rolled into one. Congestion, coughing (hacking’s a better word), neck and head pain, and an earache were but a few of the symptoms. Yet, the heavy weight of fatigue was the worst. It enveloped me like a thick blanket and sapped me of all my energy.  At times, I wondered if I would ever feel even semi-normal again.

 Well, the good news is that I was wide awake at 5:30 this morning and feeling energetic. (I am not normally an early riser!) I began to pray, then Prit came to join me. We prayed for many of you who are suffering as well, among other things. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful I feel! When accomplishing the most mundane tasks wore me out, today I feel alive again! I’m so thankful for His touch! My heart is even more in tune now with those who are suffering – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and relationally.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have been praying for me. I am truly indebted to you! Please don’t hesitate to let us know that you need prayer. One of our goals in the near future is to have a room set aside in Petite Anse just for prayer – prayer for the sick, prayer for deliverance of all kinds, prayer for the nation of Haiti and all nations, prayers for Rehoboth Ministries, and especially prayer for our supporters who are the backbone behind this great work.

1Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. 2Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. 3He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. 4He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. 5He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! Psalm 103:1-5
