We stayed stateside for a couple of weeks after our conferences for two main reasons.
One was to quickly see our families. Since we had a death in our family in 2013, we refused to be so close to them and not see them, even if just for a couple of days, during this visit.
Second was medical. We knew that Travis needed a medical check and a biopsy. Many of you were praying over him and this situation. The other question was if he needed surgery would he get it done on that visit and have Lorna return to Zion or would they both stay longer and how much longer is longer???? So, the biopsy was cancelled due to the ice and snow. Then after the reschedule of the biopsy was the recovery and the wait. The doctor said if the appointment is cancelled, then you are “clean.” Well, the appointment was not cancelled. One of us was anxious about the visit. The other, Travis, fell asleep while waiting for the doctor. That is called the PEACE OF JESUS!!!!
The diagnosis is cancer. But, the doctor was confident that we could wait and schedule later this year during our home assignment time in the states.
After much prayer, we felt at peace with the decision to wait until September for the surgery. We are praying and asking you to join us in pray for healing so that the surgery can be cancelled. If he has the surgery we pray for the doctor and nurses and total healing and a quick recovery so we continue serving our Lord as He has called us to do.
We can trust God because He has a perfect plan for our lives. God know my past and has a plan for my present and has already secured my future. Don’t worry about the future but trust God. His ways are perfect.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.
