We thank you so much for ushering us into 2022, so well prayed for, so well supported, and so well-loved!
Health issues: I am slowly gaining strength and stamina. Last week I noticed a small uptick in my walking pace and distance. I’ve graduated off wound-care completely, so no more 3x per week bandage changes. Yeah! It’s still difficult to sit long, yet so much better than even a few weeks ago. The next surgery is on 2 March. This will include a stint into the aorta, via an artery in my leg, as well as a special by-pass due to the stent location blocking an artery to my neck/brain. Gotta keep that brain supplied! LOL! 🙂
ZOOM: has allowed me to get into more personal and meeting times with a good number of GHNI staff and associates in countries we work in. I’ll keep wading in more, slowing a bit in early March; then be able to jump in deeper by mid-March. It’s difficult to put into words, all the good things our associates are doing in these countries of Serbia, Armenia, Lebanon, Iraq, India, and Nepal. I’m so grateful for our co-workers and friends in these countries, as they have shoes-on-the-ground and carry out TCD, ELD, their personal hearts of love.
Example in Armenia: Tamara and her husband, Sam, have carried on with very little personal time with me over the past 7 months. Why? Because of our excellent training? Well kinda, sure; but most of their work comes from their own hearts to expand their lives into others, and mentoring, and see our training(s) as tools to better accomplish this, while providing sustainable development to lives and villages. Family relationships and counseling seminars are being held. Sewing trades are being taught by those trained 18 months ago. Governmental relationships are constantly improving. Music lessons are being taught by Sam. Post-war community groups have been organized to help those affected by the conflict. And the beauty of it all? It’s all woven in seamlessly with sharing the love God has put in their hearts.
Please continue supporting those in difficult countries of hardships, as we all work together to supply for their current needs. Winter has been brutal in many places we work.
Grateful for you …
