We have been preparing for a group that will arrive tomorrow. We pray for their safe travels and that we will be able to reach many patients.
Kemmel and Lisa are in Guatemala City for two days of meetings. They are talking about budget and how we will do things next year. I am sure it is interesting. Many different things are going on that will impact Health Talents but with Gods guidance, we will be able to continue to serve Him.
We have had a couple of sick patients. I sent one to see our local surgeon yesterday but he is so backed up with patients, the poor man will not be seen until next Monday. I feel so bad for him.
Please continue to pray for Marlene. I heard last night that Marie has found a wig for her and someone will bring it down in October. I spoke to Marlene's dad this afternoon and he said Marlene was in Mazatenango doing more paper work and interviewing to see when they can start the chemotherapy.
One of our brothers has surgery yesterday. I wanted to visit him today but we arrived after the visiting hour was over. I called but he did not respond and that is ok. I just want him to know that we are thinking of him and giving God the praise for the successful surgery.
There is a physical therapist that works near our house. Her mom has suddenly become ill so please remember her in your prayers. There is so much sickness and disease and with the frustration and fear we sometimes forget where we need to turn.
Our physicians and medicines are such a big help but more important, is to remember the Great Physician and His power. Sometimes people are given a poor prognosis and then beat it all to pieces. We can not give up hope. Without hope, we have nothing. We do not give prayer enough credit. It is a direct line to God.
And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
