One of the things that Gloria and I have been thinking of and very thankful for is the help we are getting from our friends. I don’t know how anyone could go through a crisis like we are without help. We have someone looking in on our cat while we are gone. We have someone watering our house plants. Someone even loaned us some luggage. There are those picking up my work responsibilities. We had someone drive us to the airport and our friend Daniella picked us up when we arrived in Frankfurt and drove us to the clinic.

Daniella is a native of Germany whom we met while at the Lifestyle Center at Uchii pines in Alabama. She of course has an excellent command of the language, something Gloria found very helpful in communicating with the staff here. She was here for over a week. Just the providence of having met her before we came here and that she was here at the time we needed her reminds us of God’s care for us.

Peter encourages us in “casting all our care upon Him for He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) We see that care reflected in our friends. Jesus said “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:29)

The truth is we need each other to make it through difficult times.  Thanks to all of our friends for the peace of mind you have given us with your care.
