Fri. Jan. 9Th
Kit had a pretty good night last night. He just told me that he wanted me to let you know how thankful he is for so many things. The fact that his brother Buddy is okay after being run over by a truck with his bike and to see how many people just rallied and prayed for him..is a wonderful testimony to sowing in to the body of Christ. It is a comfort to Kit to know that so many people love his brother, the way that Kit does. Most of you know that Buddy and Kit started the Fri. night service together years ago and the worship teams today still flow with the same creativity and freedom that Buddy brought as a worship leader.
Kit is thankful that his son and daughter-in-law are coming to be with him from Oregon. They fly in on Wed. and Kit and I are so thankful to Mark and Jori Spencer because they set up the whole thing. Kit said," My heart is so thankful because I see our body of Christ is really putting in to action their faith... it is a very powerful testimony to those around us of how God's love can grab a hold of our lives and cause us to be much richer and fuller and touch more lives and cause our lives to be much more than we could ever imagine. I don't really know God's ultimate transition plan for me in to eternity in terms of the timing, I am physically very weak and tired, but my desire is to serve the Lord if he should choose to give me the energy and health to do so. I am very thankful for the ministry that God has given to me and my hearts desire is to continue to be able to expand upon the truth and knowledge that God has imparted to me. I still want to teach and help others enhance their relationship with God and to help them prepare for those difficult times in life that come upon us . We have God,we have His great gift , the life of Christ..and we have one another....and this is more than enough for a lifetime of thankfulness."
Kit fell back to sleep, so... I am continuing on... We just got the information about Kit's blood work and his white blood cells are 3.900 (18 % are neutraphils) so... things are looking up...the red blood cells and platelets are about the same, so... we are not sure if the red blood cells will be transfused today or not. The doctor is taking one of the anti biotics away and now he will only be on 3.
Last night, when Kit was asleep, and I was in my little cot ,near his bed, there was a knock on the door and we had a visitor. Laura Bagby's dad, Ron, was there to visit us, after he was up visiting his wife... What a wonderful visit we had.. out in the hallway.. He is such a loving person...no wonder Laura is the way she is... He offered to have me come and eat out his house etc... The body of Christ is HUGE and so honoring to our Lord .
I know this is long... we love you guys.... shelly and kit
