Fill of Good News

Our room was nicely prepared just like we had never left. They have graciously given us their beds once again.

Adios Amebas!

I visited my new doctor, Dr. Eleazar Siebenhor, today.  He said, “Brother, you are really sick with ameba.” I said, “Doc, what do you recommend?” He sent Rosa to the pharmacy for some Secnidazol, the ultimate ameba killer. Rosa returns with a pack of four pills. The doctor told me to take all of them and then go lie down. “By tonight you will know if you are going to be better, Lewis”. Praise the Lord—I live and the ameba dies! I feel better now than I have in the past ten days. Amazing what a little poison can do!

I can’t wait to show you pics of the church building that we started only 3 weeks ago, they’re amazing! I will take pics first thing tomorrow. God bless you and thank you for praying!


In Flight

Normally, I don’t have a window seat. The night lights in Houston were a beautiful sight… but I couldn’t help but to think of the thousands of people living there who need Jesus in their lives. He rescued my soul and had set me free from sin and death nearly 30 years ago. For that, I can’t help but praise Him.

Funny thing about this “bug” that I have. I have a pretty good appetite, but after eating I have some pain and felt a bit nauseous. Perhaps I’m pregnant (Oh my… what will people say!) After 10—15 minutes it gets better with only a slight reminder that “it” is still there.

Where One Trail Ends…

The mission team flew into Nashville around midnight last Saturday. We limped home, crawling into our own beds by 2am.

Then, my gut felt like someone was standing on it. What we thought to be a “24hr bug”, kept raising it’s ugly head: 36hrs, 48hrs, 72hrs, more hours keep going by. Like bad company, it was here to stay.

On Wednesday, I started taking some antibiotics and though, aways from par,
I’m on the mends.

As I dressed this morning, I noticed that I could take my belt up another notch. That’s always a good thing but being fatigued and weak in the legs is not. This, too, shall pass…

Up, up and away!

The 2nd team this year, Oakland Baptist from Rutledge, TN, should be landing soon in Guatemala. I’ll be joining them tonight. Tomorrow, we will drive to Masagua and continue the work we started three weeks ago.

Ely and Rosa will fly into Nashville on Tuesday to see Dr Horn at Vanderbilt on Wednesday. We hope to find out if the chemotherapy is working or not.

Thanks for your prayers and support.
