To The Faithful Remnant

Thank you all for staying around during my absence, and thank especially to those of you who prayed for us while we were in India. We had a wonderful trip. For me, it was eye-opening in many ways. I hope to document that in a series of posts here. I saw first hand the poverty of India, the hideousness of the caste system, persecution, and the bravery of our brothers and sisters in Christ in India.

I will try to begin that tomorrow. Today, I am taking it easy. The day after I returned home from India I became extremely ill. My temperature reached 104 degrees, so I went to the emergency room. I was admitted, and I only returned home today. I had eaten, drank, came into contact with something contaminated and contracted ecoli. I was not pleasent. They thought I had cholera. Please continue to pray for me. I am still pretty weak. Thanks again for not utterly abandoning the place while I was away. I look forward to sharing with you about the work in India.

I thought I was the sojourner...

Somehow I found your site and reading your adventures are fun. Hope you get to feeling better.

Glad you are back and safe. We got word that you were sick, was praying that it was nothing serious. We take for granted our cleanliness (at least in comparison) in this country until you go somewhere that you can easily get E. Coli. Been missing the blog-posts, can't wait to hear more about India!
