Update on Rebecca

Thank you so much for all of your prayers. We talked with her tonight. She is still in Kuwait. She is hopeful that she will get a flight out in the next day or so. She is exhausted and sounds run down. The doctors are unsure as to why she has been so sick for so long. There are doctors here in Texas waiting for her. They are very concerned about her red and white blood cell counts. She will be seen and if necessary, treated as soon as possible once she arrives in the states. She has asked me to pass on her gratitude to all of you who have been praying for her.

One of the things I did not mention in the prior post was that Rebecca had her military ID, bank card and her cash stolen after she arrived in Kuwait. Peter said that she would not be able to fly back to the states with out her ID. He was unsure about how she could get new ID or how long it would take. He was very frustrated and discouraged. We started praying, knowing that only God could sort the whole thing out.

One of the first things Rebecca told me was that they had found her ID and bank card. They had been turned in to the security office. Her money was gone but she is so thankful to have her ID. God is so, so good!

Lord, thank You for Your goodness and mercy. Please bring Rebecca home safely and quickly.

I'm sure that being sick in a foreign country is aweful, especially when you are alone. We will pray for her!

I just wanted to sincerely thank everybody from the bottom of my heart for all of your prayers for me. I don't think that any of you will ever realize how much it means to me. I am only sad that I can't finish out my service to all of you over in Iraq. Please do me a favor and more than me, just think of those I left behind over there. They still have time to serve, and are doing a lot of work in my place. It is to them I owe a debt. I thank all of you again for thinking of me. I am confident that God is going to take care of me and will work everything out the way it should be.
