God's help with health.

Today is Bible devotion day for the ladies in the gym. We will be talking about putting on the full armor of God taken from Ephesians 6. I love how Paul tells us to "be strong in the Lord and the strength of His might" and then tells us exactly how we can do that. I'm so thankful to be healthy and getting strong again but am even more thankful that no matter how this body of mine feels I can always be strong in the Lord.

The journey we had in the NW was truly wonderful but the day before we headed back to Buea I fell sick. I decided we should persevere and head back home anyway. That night, I was admitted in the hospital for malaria and mastitis. I had one and it made my immune system weak and caused the other. Which one caused the other I don't know but after 2 different antibiotics, 2 different pain/fever meds, and 4 drips I started to feel better and was able to be released the next day. Each day I felt better and better and now I am 100% and in the gym again, praise God! 

Once I started to feel better Jonathan fell sick with malaria and an infection. The doctor isn't sure what infection it was exactly because lack of test availability but we do know that his white blood cell count was high. After malaria meds and now being on antibiotics for 3 days (only 5 more to go!) he is feeling much better. I know it is due to the meds and the power of prayer.

I know no matter where you live there will be sickness. The rain falls on the wicked and the righteous alike. I know we are exercising, eating healthy, and keep a clean home. However, when you are ministering to people in the city where there is a shortage of water (even though Buea is one of the wettest places in the world!), in the village where not everyone is educated on sanitation, and live in a place where parasites like malaria are common we are more likely to pick up sickness. If we are able to help save or encourage one soul in Cameroon then all the sickness is worth it.

 We value your continued prayers as we fight the good fight and we continue to pray for you all as well!
