The best news possible: we are going home on Saturday better than either of us has been in at least a year or more. Karen is showing no blockage at all, now, and no migraines, and greatly reduced pain from fibromyalgia. She has energy and passion to get back to God's work. It was expensive, at least from our point of view, and the doctor in Arusha and here didn't think Karen was likely to make it, but she did--and with flying colors. The doctor here wrote prescriptions for enough medication for six months and wants us to return then for a check up and more meds. Thanks to my son, Chris, the funds for that trip and check up are already in our bank. Most importantly, we are so thankful for the hundreds, maybe thousands of people who were praying for Karen and for me. People who don't go to church. People who never prayed before--like a seventy year old Black Panther in Arusha. Whole churches were praying. The cardiologist said God had a bigger hand in this than he did. All I can say is that we are very, very grateful, and very happy to be going back to the mission field where we belong. Thanks to each of you. God bless.
