After so much pain, she just got an intramuscular pain medicine shot, and was asleep within minutes. Pray that she will get lots of much needed sleep. She is doing so much better now, thanks be to the Lord for His healing, and His amazing design of our body. We are very thankful to have access to good doctors, who are really tools in the Lord's hand. even if it is 3 hours away. It is interesting that we are sitting in the same hospital were I lay 2 years ago, on May 23rd 2008... although this time she was "trying to die", :-).
Life is so fragile, sometimes we have the arrogance to think that we are in control, only God can give and take life. As Job said (and many of you have mentioned).. the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord.
You know a lot of things happen on the mission field that affect the missionary, that we never write about or share. Recently a man choked to death in the street, it was the first time I ever saw a man die. No one would help him, two police men standing by watching told everybody to stay back, even they didn't know how to help... they did nothing. I was picking people people up for church. When I arrived I was shaking... I wept. I composed myself and asked the congregation how many people have to die without being told. For 2 months in our town people started dying all over (about 10 different people), almost all of them I knew, about 6-7 I had witnessed to personally, but several I had not, and that bothered me. We are all going to die someday, where will you go after you die. That is the most important question that can be asked this side of eternity. Do you know Christ, do you believe in Him? He is the way and truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father except through him. Are you prepared? He paid the price that we owed. Jaynee is ready, her eternity is secure through Jesus Christ our Saviour. How about you? Do you believe God's promises? He will save you if you will only believe and call upon Him.
We are so thankful for your prayers and concern, please continue as the Lord leads.
