Time will soon be here for my second knee surgery. As you know I had the left one done now it is time for the right one. My date for August came and went as they postponed it and I hobbled worse and worse. I can hardly wait for this one to be done so I can walk right again.
October the 18th will be my surgery date.
Many people are praying for me and I so appreciate it. My surgeon is a good one God led me to and you can hardly see the scar. As you know from the last time I will probably be in the hospital three days and in rehab for almost a month. I know what to expect this time.
Wonderful Physical Therapy.
Horrible food
Visitors from church
Some nurses and CNAíS good and some not so good.
But I made it through. Praise the Lord.
A long time ago I read a scripture that said ďOnce I was young and now I am Old(er) and I have not see the righteous forsaken or His seed begging breadĒ. I have lived by that scripture for many years now and know that when I was a tiny baby the Lord watched over me as I was born in my parentís house, He was with me as I lived through the depression with my mom and dad and siblings, He was with me when I sought Him and found Him and He has been with me for the over 55 years I have been in the ministry.
I thank God for you, for your prayers and your support as we planted seed and watched it mature and bring forth. I have many children and grandchildren in the Lord who are working for Him.
I thank God for the pastors who I work with in Reynosa and also for all of the Bible Schools I taught in and the missionaries there also. I was able to build churches other than the Reynosa one because of you.
The pastorís in Mexico are still doing a great job. The last time I met with the pastorís son on our side of the border he asked prayer for his mother and also for his own family. He was a little kid when I met them now is a grown man with a wife and a little girl.
Thank you all who pray and give. God bless you mightily.

    Thanks for sharing your good prayer letter. I'll be praying for your surgery and rehab. I'm glad you're getting your second knee, finally!! If you have your telephone in rehab, I'll give you a call one day later on in your recovery.

    My thoughts of peace will be with you for your surgery.
It sounds like you have been a blessing to God. By being a good seed, and doing his commission. And for that I thank you for allowing me to read your blog.

p.s., your picture looks great!
