My friend

I woke up this morning and my legs were aching a little but I thought maybe that was from planting peanuts and exercising last night.  After our first service this morning, I realized what I had: yes my friend came to visit, malaria again.  I am not to bad because I caught it early and took medicine but I hope this will inspire all of us to pray for missionaries all across the world.  Its not easy suffering but I have come to realize that many times it is necessary.

I went to our main work (Cissin) and preached even though I didn’t feel good and feel like preaching.  God blessed and we had one profession of faith.  Amen!  I am often reminded about what the Apostle Paul said, “For when I am weak, then I am strong.”  I have often experienced how true this can be.  God moved in a wonderful way this morning.  Just goes to show you who is actually doing the work.  Not ME!  Amen!

    Thanks for the prayers. They are much needed. I thought that I would be able to go tonight but I have decided to stay because I have a really high fever. I feel that it might be breaking.
