Exiting a whirlwind week! So much has happened in the past 7 days that it hardly seems real. Here’s a brief timeline:
Friday, Dec. 7– After much prayer and seeking Godly council, Kurt resigns his position at Southeast Christian Church taking a financial step of faith in obedience to God’s call to join Further Still full-time in a ministry of making disciples (DC: Thoroughly Equipped), Excellent Things and Marriage and Family Discipleship. We are excited to work together in ministry!
At 5PM that announcement goes out to all the staff at Southeast.
At 5:10PM, my doctor calls to inform me that I have a spot on my lung that will need a biopsy. I have been experiencing some back pain that I assumed was a pulled muscle.
Saturday-Sunday, Dec. 8-9,: Kurt and I attend the four weekend services at the Oldham Campus and make the announcement of Kurt’s resignation to the church family.
Saturday PM, The elders anoint me with oil and pray over me
Monday, Dec. 10: Doctor appointment
Tuesday, Dec. 11: MRI, CT, ultra sound & other tests all day
Wednesday, 12/12/12: Dr. says there’s a tumor on my right lung and he says it looks like cancer. He also says it doesn’t make sense. I appear to be healthy otherwise and have no risk factors for lung cancer.
Thursday, Dec. 13: Day of rest
Friday, Dec. 14: Biopsy
Saturday – Sunday Dec. 15-16: Rest Days, waiting for results of biopsy
Monday, Dec 17: PET scan
Thursday, Dec. 20: Dr. appointment to hear results
We truly believe this is an attack from the evil one. We greatly appreciate all of those praying and graciously helping us during this time of trial. We are so thankful for Christ and His bride!
You can continue to pray specifically for great faith, increased faith, to trust and believe in the love and care of our Father. How can we not? He has always been so faithful.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live. Yet not I but Christ lives in me and the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Thank you for warring on our behalf!
