Blessed New Year to everyone!
I am still kicking, so not to fret.
I transferred my Dad, Willard, after 3 weeks in 2 different hospitals, to a nursing home in his hometown of Eagle Lake. He is doing well for having only 25% of his kidney function. He is now able to walk short distances, but can no longer live on his own. So Bunny has been hopping through the massive paperwork loops to organize his long term stay. Thank you for all your prayers and emotional support for both of us.
If Dad remains stable, I will fly out Wed. JAN. 10th to Africa.
Things are under control in Balama but…
BBC MOTORBIKE ACCIDENT put 1 Evangelist in the hospital with a broken leg. Another biker came around a curve on the wrong side of the road at a high speed, hitting Carlitos Jorge and his assistant, Evangelist Frederico from Rovuma village on Dec. 24th. Carlitos tried to dodge, but the oncoming bike struck them right between the 2 men’s legs, breaking Fred’s right lower leg in 2 places. Carlitos suffered only minor injuries to his right leg, and is fine.
Fred was transferred from Balama hospital to Montepuez regional hospital where he stayed for 2 days. His leg is not responding well, so our Balama doctor may send him for a further work up in a bigger city. The bike is not repairable, and the rains have been very heavy since the accident. I have temporarily suspended this team till mid January. It is too wet at this time to be on the roads.
This is a tremendous blow to our BBC TEAM. We are very, very grateful that no one was killed. The other man suffered a broken leg also.
We thank you for keeping this team in your prayers. Prayers for my safe return are also appreciated. It is a full 3 days of air travel for me, and very draining. I should be back in Balama on Sat. January. 13, if all goes as planned.
God’s Blessings to all of you in this year of “excelleration”.
GET READY FOR THE COMING OF THE SON!
