Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for your prayers, emails and phone calls of encouragement,
this past month regarding my trip to England for kidney surgery.
I'm grateful to the Lord for answered prayer in a successful
surgery and current healing. I still have 3 weeks of healing
before the surgeon will allow me to leave the country. The reason
is there is a 1% risk that the artery and vein in the kidney
will NOT completely join back together, which would cause internal
bleeding and require additional emergency surgery.
Please continue to pray, especially that everything would
heal as it should. God is sovereign and we continue to trust
in Him and his mercy.
I have also "caught" a cold and sore throat from
my host. Pray I recover quickly, and that this does not negatively
impact my ongoing recovery from surgery. Otherwise, I feel healthy
and am able to get out and exercise each day.
I keep up with Maxwell Ministries book keeping, administration,
and daily correspondence with those in Niger and around the world,
while here in the UK.
One very important and pressing prayer request regards
our insurance company. To date they have not approved any claims,
I've filed with them regarding the appointments, procedures and
surgery. I've sent them ALL the hospital invoices, information,
Dr's reports that the hospital here has provided, and the insurance
company is still responding the invoices and reports are not
enough. PRAY for God's work in the insurance company's representatives
lives, for acceptance and approval of the claims. The first procedures
I've had to pay on a credit card, so there is no pressure on
the insurance company to reimburse, yet is a cost to us.
I believe God will work this out for His honor and glory,
its His money, and whether He provides all the funds through
Maxwell Ministries or has the insurance company pay as they should,
its up to Him.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers, encouragement and support.
