NEWS, SOME YOU KNOW AND SOME YOU DON'T!

I DO NOT WANT THIS ON FACE BOOK FOR PERSONAL REASONS.

MAY 2013 NEWS LETTER. IRENE DAVIS MISSIONS, 1500 EVERGREEN AVE NO. 34 MISSION, TX. 78572
It has been a long time since I wrote a news letter and you will understand when I get through with this.
November the 29th my brother in California passed away. I was able to talk to him on the phone every night or so for a month or so. Then he was on hospice and could no longer talk as he had no breath. I will not go into detail as it was a very trying time for me. Now I have one brother left of us siblings.
Several close friends have passed away during these months including the two oldest Peel boys. When I came to work in Mexico I worked with the Peels. They had nine children. I could not go to the funerals as I was having trouble with my knees.
Then on the 8th of February I was scheduled for a total knee replacement but right before that my water heater gave out and leaked ruining my carpet. I got a new carpet out of it. They had to put my stuff in storage and some friends came over and helped me to downsize. Their church wanted a library and I gave them a library for sure. I also gave a lot of things to the people who helped me.
God has given me some really good friends who help me just because. They want to do something for the Lord and for me.
On March the 8th I had one knee replaced. I was in the hospital 3 days and then in rehab for one month. I have been home since the 11th of April and have Physical Therapy here. Sometimes I still have pain in my knee especially at night when I am in the same position for hours. So many people, much younger than I, have worse things going on in their life so I should not complain. God has taken care of me all of these years and He won’t stop now.
On the 24th of April I went to pick up a prescription. When I got to the intersection I had the arrow to turn south to go down to my home when a truck came through fast, run the red light and totaled my car. She lied so it was her word against mine. God will take care of me. They told me today how much money they were giving me and of course it is more than a trade in would be. God will supply the rest of my need. A friend is going to help me choose the car (a man) and of course they pay more attention to men. I want something like a mini-van that I can just slide into because I plan to have my other knee done later and a low car is difficult to get in and out of.
My pastors from Reynosa have called me each week to see how I am. They are so excited and I am also as souls are being saved and God is moving in wondrous ways. They are having revivals in the large lot we bought and regular services inside of the church.
Also 4 other former students have contacted me. They are all in the work of the Lord which makes me very happy.
God bless all and thank you for your prayers and support
Irene

    Oh boy Irene - I had no idea about your car accident (but I think it's because you didn't share about it until now!) Sad that the woman chose to lie, but good for you that you knew how to handle that - God takes care of us, and it is nice to be able to let it go - it's His place to judge and we know He will in His wisdom and time! It sounds like basically you were none the worse for the accident, but not really 100% sure. I hope so!!

I also hope that she learned an important lesson on the inside, and I know you must have set her a Godly example! Perhaps somehow God will bring her to repentance. Anyway, she should have:

I am surprised that you want a mini van - I find them hard to get into sometimes. But it is great that you have a friend (man) to help you with that. yes, car-buying is not best done by a woman alone!!
My faith is always built when I read your posts. Thank you for being such an encouragement to me and a reminder of what is important. You inspire so many and they naturally want to bless you - I hope that I will feel that same sense of people around me in my later years.
Take care and keep us updated on how things are going with your knee rehab.

    I did not mention the accident as I was waiting until I knew just what they were going to do.
Thank you all for your prayers and your kindness.

    Now I know you must be taller than I am because I have to climb into vans -- including minis.

    So sorry about the car accident! Like the ones my DSs were in about 3 yrs ago. So frustrating. Thankfully you weren't hurt or not terribly bad. Neither were the boys.
Praise God for His provision and protection!!

    Irene, so sorry to hear about the wreck. either I missed it here, or you didn't mention it. I am so thankful that you won't hurt (at least you didn't say you were). God is good.

Take care of Irene, and pray the next few months will be better for you.

Marsha
