Counting the cost, again.

We are asking that you lift our family up in prayer once again as Summer prepares for an unexpected trip back to Nairobi.  

To give you a short update:

Summer escorted her father to the airport in Entebbe last Wednesday and planned to go for a follow-up appointment with the tropical disease doctor to make sure that indeed the Primaquine cleared her liver of all the vivax {malaria} parasites--which it did!  While at the appointment, Summer mentioned that she was still feeling unwell and so the doctor ordered a few standard tests to see what might be going on.  To make a long story short, Summer is suffering from anemia due to bleeding somewhere along her gastrointestinal tract as well as an elevated ESR and enlarged iliac lymph nodes.  Three exploratory procedures have been ordered; an endoscopy, colonoscopy and a laproscopic biopsy.  Summer will leave for Nairobi this Thursday morning and plans to see the doctor Friday morning.

Please pray for:

Gods protection over Summer during each and every procedure and Zane and the children back in Kitgum.
Wisdom for the doctors.
Gods provision.

We will do our best to keep you up to date.

We pray for you too!

If you need Summer to come home sooner than June just let us know.
Today it is definitely raining on one of the Righteous but have heart!

I will bless the Lord at all times;

His praise shall be in my mouth.
