—“The Ankle Bone’s Connected to the Leg Bone”
—We Have a Need Because They Have a Need
“THE ANKLE BONE’S CONNECTED TO THE LEG BONE”
There is an old spiritual, a fun song, telling that the bones are connected to each other. I’m trying to think of something to get my mind off of my pain. So, this old song came to my mind. Truth is, I’m tired of the pain. Oh me, it’s been a battle for over five weeks. Stephanie has been a wonderful caregiver, yet, this is not easy for her either. She does not like to see me suffer so much pain. Thank you for your prayers.
After visiting a Christian Orthopedic doctor in Jacksonville, Florida, we are encouraged that God directed us to a brilliant man who “really knows his stuff.” Stay tuned as I go through this new treatment to correct what he labeled a “mess” after viewing the MRI. There are four different problems with my ankle right now. It seems like when I do it, I really, really do it, as they say.
He listened to what I did in Romania [jumping up and down during an illustration during a dynamic, active message]. “No ankle turned? Sprained?” “No, I just jumped up and down.” “Wonderful, let’s get you well so you can get back to your young people to minister to them again.” All right! Let’s do it! It seems that I traumatized some old injuries to my ankle, then gout started in my ankle [too many mixed grill plates]. Stephanie checked online to see what I should eat and which food I should not eat because of gout. So far I’ve dropped 12 pounds and the gout is out after treatment. I’ll update you later as to how things are progressing.
WE HAVE A NEED BECAUSE THEY HAVE A NEED
Underprivileged kids in Costa Rica need us. This year Stephanie and I were on hand for the inaugural LIFE Costa Rica youth camp in January. The results were incredible … decisions for Christ. We are making plans for next January which means that we have to put down a deposit to hold a facility for next year’s camp. Thinking that you would like to know about this we need $5000 right away to reserve a week for needy young Costa Ricans. We will need more than this eventually, but, this is the need right now.
Can we count on you to help? Would you partner with us to put smiles on young faces in Costa Rica? These teens simply cannot pay what camp costs. Here is a great opportunity to make an impact and change lives.
Send your contribution to Life Impact For Eternity, 3984 Manatee Avenue East, Bradenton FL 34208 earmarking it for LIFE Costa Rica.
In advance I thank you in behalf of these wonderful young people.
—Pray for my ankle that it will respond to this treatment protocol.
—Pray that I will be well enough so that we will be able to make our next trip to Romania departing June 21
—Pray for Stephanie’s grandson, Gage, to continue to make progress in his battle with Autism. He is high functioning, but he struggles to put together sentences. Sweet, precious 8 year old.
—Pray for a minimum of $5000 to be donated to secure a youth camp facility in Costa Rica. We have to make this payment soon to reserve a week for our camp.
