I have had many of you ask what is going on with Jacob and what happen with calling the dad. Here's the latest.
Jacob is doing great. He came through the surgery with flying colors. His doctor is Dr. Parsons from Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat. He is great. He is a christian man. How do I now you ask? Well he floored me just before taking Jacob back. Out of no where he said to us, "Let's pray over Jacob before he goes back". Before I knew it he was leading us in a healing, protection prayer. I am still amazed. I have never had a doctor act like him. He didn't even give me a chance to say no. That's a true man of God. Can you imagine the lives he is affecting by his prayers over these children? What boldness he had.
The prayers of the doctor and you are working because Jacob is acting like he never even had surgery. He has a little soar throat but that's all.
Thank you so much for agreeing with us for his healing. God listened, and answered.
As for Isamar's dad. We called him as planned and he was very hesitant in responding to our request. We asked to have the girls over the weekend since they were out of school. He kept saying they had homework and house chores to do. After more discussion he agreed to let us have them on Saturday at 2:00.
I am trying not to be pushy with this man but he is pushing my patience. I am trying to be grateful for the fact that I can even see them but it's hard. Of course, I want to see them every minute I am in Nicaragua but obviously he does not agree with me.
Please continue to pray for this situation. I am not sure how much my heart can take if he changes his mind.
Also, continue to pray for the rest of our trip. I can't wait to visit Coffradia and talk to the families that participated in the garden project and see the family that got the new house.
We are continuing to trust the Lord to provide the much needed finances for this trip. Since the last time I posted we have had many unexpected expenses arrive. The enemy is of course trying hard to discourage me with changing our plans and adding those expenses but I am standing strong that God is in control of this trip. He is my pilot and He will be the one to direct my paths, not the enemy.
Thanks to those who are supporting us with the finances and prayers. You are a part of this trip even if you aren't going with us. Without people like you the work of the Lord that needs to be done all over the world would not happen. You are precious in His sight.
Your prayers are what will make this trip successful so please continue to lift Terry, the boys, and myself up in prayer. Today, tomorrow and all week long.
Let's watch God show off together...
