Just a basic update post and another time to just give thanks and glory to God. Susana is doing really well on this second round of chemo. So far, she has not had any side effects whatsoever, except for one night where she vomited a few times because I tried to get her to take some liquid colase But aside from that, she has been doing great! She is extremely lively, she is talking and wanting to play non-stop, she has been going to the playroom every day, and she is just super happy! Which of course makes us all SUPER happy. So, she has been in since Monday and she will most likely be discharged tomorrow. Wow! That was an easy 5 days. Praise the Lord for those as we know that there will be much more challenging times ahead.
We are also just so thankful for God’s provision in our lives. He has blessed us in so many ways. Our support from our family and friends both near and far has been such a blessing. We don’t love the fact that we have to be back in the states at this point, but if we do have to be here, there is no better place where we would want to be than here in Asheville. The mountains are all around us and they are beautiful. It reminds us of living in Haiti minus the intense heat, malaria, stomach parasites, etc Haha. Seriously, we do miss Haiti, but we rejoice in the Lord that He has us here for what we are going through.
I am also excited that our ministry in Haiti is going well. We have a few teams scheduled to go down in the next month and Lord willing, I may be able to go also. We are in the process of looking to buy a 4X4 Pickup truck for the ministry there so that we can transport food and supplies way up into the mountains where the people are so impoverished. Hopefully, we will locate a good vehicle for sale and then ship it over there within the next month. We also will be starting up our discipleship groups very soon. It brings us so much joy to know that God’s work is still being done through our ministry in Haiti and that lives are being changed for His glory. It is our greatest blessing to be part of His kingdom work in Haiti.
Our right hand man in Haiti, Fenel, had a scare this week as his wife had to go to the hospital because of such severe stomach pain. It turns out that she had appendicitis and had to have her appendix removed. The surgery went well and she is now recovering thank the Lord. We really love Fenel and Mimi and the 2 kids that they are caring for. We miss them so much, but we also talk to them regularly. I am looking forward to seeing them soon.
So, thank you all for your continued prayers and support. We serve a mighty big God who truly is able to do more than we could ever ask for, think, or imagine. And we continue to pray that we get good reports from the doctor like those we have received this week. – Cody
