January 13, 2018 Quick Update

I just want to get some prayer requests out at the last minute because I appreciate your prayers.

I haven’t gotten a prayer letter out because I sprained the middle finger of my right hand.  The screen at church (on a metal frame) fell and I stuck my hand up to break its fall so that it wouldn’t land on my friend or the computer.  Because it happened late Dec. 29th, I didn’t see a doctor for a week and then had a splint on this last week.  It was supposed to come off Thursday, but the finger is still swollen.  The doctor instructed me to keep the splint on another week and continue with the meds as well.  Please pray for quick and thorough healing.

In much greater need of healing is my friend Iván.  He’s just 28 years old with a wife, 5 yr. old son and a baby but he has a rare cancer.  He started his first 5-day session of chemo Wednesday.  The doctors give him a 50% chance of living another 5 years.  Please pray for him and his family.

We have our TEAM Annual Conference this week.  We’ll all be traveling in the morning (Sunday), returning Friday.  Please pray for wisdom and discernment as we work on vision and also on safety concerns for the Mexico field.

Thanks so much for your prayers!

Brenda
