This morning, Tel-Mex came and fixed our phone/internet line! While I was thankful we were able to go into town to download/send email and update the blog, it is much easier to do from home. I have always thought back on a biography I read of Adoniram and Ann Judson, one of the first missionaries to Burma in the early 1800's.
How much they suffered as they strove to give the gospel to a very hard, closed people! When they first arrived, they were alone, not knowing anything of the Burmese language, battling sickness and living in a very impoverished area. It was a year and a half before they got their very first letter from home. And here I can send or get a message in seconds. Yet do I sacrifice my life fully to Christ as those early missionaries did? How thankful I am for their example!
I went back to the doctor on Thursday as they had the results from some of my tests. Everything pointed to me having a very bad bladder or possibly kidney infection. The doctors were a bit baffled though as I have had no pain or bother at all in that area. My only real complaint has been the fever, body aches, and fatigue.
They prescribed me another antibiotic and after being on it for 2 days now, I'm feeling so much better. I think this is the first day in 2 weeks I haven't had a fever, and last night was the first time since being sick that I felt hungry, so I think I'm on the mend :) Thank you for your prayers!
Today is Susannah's 4th Birthday. Tacos tonight! :) This next weekend, Daniel's brother and sister in law with their 6 children are due to arrive for a visit. How good the Lord is to bless us so much!
