Wow, Dana - we think alike. I've been thinking of Diana and wondering about her, too.

Diana - I hope all is well with you and your family!

Thank you for this note Dana and Molly. It has been ..... much, lately. In all directions both on the homefront and in the mission field, for those that we serve and those that we love dearly who are suffering so. Heartaches and much to be grateful for. I see the Lord at work, on the move, very much at work in the lives of many; yet, conflicted by the world's attitude and bad behavior in the way that people who need people, choose to be superficial to the point of mis-using authority, ignoring obvious signs that merit undivided attn and totally oblivious to the reality that there is only one true God and it is not 'them'. On the other hand, it is a constant reminder of humility so that I don't ever forget, too.

I have been offline for several days, as well.

Thank you for reaching out to me. It can be a bittersweet calling in the sense that we give ourselves to so many, which I am blessed to do; but realizing that I am in need of what the Lord offers through one anothering. It helps to know that I have a friend or two who will care simply about 'me' and hold me up. Thank you for doing that for me. I tend to be focused on simply serving, content to do that for the Lord.

We leave for CT on Tuesday for Heth's appointments. Dr.J, Dr.B. and Dr.Nash. Lots of testing and about 16 viles right before her cycle, which may or may not hit while in the midst of the travels. I had this word picture of all of the spirochetes draining from her during the blood draw. hrmph. If only. The appointments are different this time and spread out over several days, so we will not be driving home until Monday. So, we are preparing our food tomorrow, packing and trying to remember what we need to carry w/the exception of the kitchen sink.

The Lyme forum was an incredible gift for so many. We continue to receive feedback, which helps us to know. Our doctors who spoke stayed well over an hour past our finish time to continue to answer folks' questions during the Q&A. They were wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. To an audience of so many who were suffering, the majority stayed into that last minute. This was impressive if not a clear tell tale sign. They were hungry to learn the truth. We were blessed in so many ways. We had several doctors from the region who were taking furious notes to the end. We have bridged relationships fm GPs, MDs, DOs, DCs to our Lyme specialists. Even so, the calls, emails and visits are an endless line of families facing much of the same that we all have experienced that led to chronic infection, rejection and tremendous loss. It is overwhelming and we are in need of more constructive opportunities like this one offered. There is much in the pending works for over the winter and working with biology team, docs and ongoing consultation/education.

You would have been proud of Heather. In pain, no one knew. She doesn't focus on self. She walked up to the podium, welcomed her guests, shared an analogy, spoke with thanks to the audience and to our team of experts, presented her gift check for Lyme research of 1,919 AND 50cents to P.S. of LDA. When she finished, she left the room to meet two new young adult friends where she joined them on the couch we had pulled from the youth room so that they could rest in the background. Heth, from the frequencies of the sound system, had gone deaf (again) in her left ear and her nagging head pain went migraine. The spotlights in our ceiling were very hot and sent her into a herx that manifested in nausea and migratory pain. But, not one complaint. Her hearing returned after an hour or so and she allowed her adreneline to carry the pain load until we saw her acupuncturist, chiro and therapeutic massage to help offload one thing at a time.

About 200 signed up for the documentary and we will show this in small groups and a considerable number (not sure how many yet) expressed a desire for a support group if it were to come. If so, this would be a ministry in both spiritual and physical. Not quite ready to tackle that until some additional things are in place. If the Lord desires for us to do this, i twould have to be led by Him and centered on Him. All would be welcome, but we would hope to include prayer and a time of comfort.

Pray for a dear one who fights with all of her soul to beat her own devastating battle with Lyme; and pray for her dear 'sister' who fights on her own battleground and loves with a deep love this dear one; yet is deeply moved b/c of the reality of both of their journeys. Both are too young to have faced this much and need to constantly be held up in prayer to the One who has already rescued them and is unfolding His plan before their hope-filled eyes.

Please pray for us as we address the destruction to Heth's endocrine system, beginning w/pituitary all the way through her thyroid, adrenals, cortisol, DHEA, hypothalamus, thalmus, metabolism, etc....................................... It is very...difficult. She is trusting and walking it w/not okay symptoms. I hope the Lord blesses her body with balancing to her system. That would be an amazing gift to Heather and we believe, take her treatment and healing to a new level.

I am trying to quickly catch up on each one's news here. You are my dear friends and I care about your lives and day to day sufferings and joys.

In His love, diana

Thanks for checking in, Diana.

You, Heth and your husband never fail to amaze me. You are all angels from heaven!

Heather is one heck of an amazing young woman. She is suffering so much yet has so much to offer to others in need.

I am so very proud and blessed to know you, and of course, you are always in my prayers. I will pray extra that Heth can handle the challenges of the next few days and I know that somehow she will - she is in His hands.

Many gentle hugs

Molly

YES - thanks for checking in even though you are busy and I am sure tired.

You are always in my prayers - no need to ever ask - everyday....all of you.

The calling is never easy, but the lives you touch makes it priceless and willl be FOREVER remembered.

I hope YOU are getting the rest you need and Heather I know will remain strong in God, there is no one like Heath!

Love you dearly for all you do unto Him- may you be blessed in every way.

I had to laugh at your vision of the spirochetes draining with blood tests, I always envision that when I get blood tests...well I always think a few thousand or even million must be gone! Maybe if we do enough blood tests....hmmmmm... :woohoo:

Dana

TY. It is nearly 2am - have food prepared, thanks to Bear. Laundry done, thanks to Bear. Packed, well - mostly.

Tired? Oh, if you only knew. Hurtin' all over. Going to try to sleep.
We'll hopefully be able to get online at the R.McD and check in.

Love you. Diana
