Family & Friends,
Before leaving for Rwanda I’m doing “due diligence” on health or what I call “the state of the bodily union” report. Monday was a routine eye exam in case I needed new glasses. Instead, I was informed that I had cataracts in both eyes. After some frantic phone calls they determined that there was time for the two separate surgeries. In 24 hours I was able to get good counsel from the Imago Dei leadership, Africa New Life leadership, a prayer team at Multnomah and a nurse from our church who works in a cataract medical site. The only caution is that I have one eye that is legally blind with about one tenth vision. This eye makes parallel parking difficult and means that I can’t join the air force. Please pray for a routine and successful surgery today (1/22/14) and in six days (1/28/14).
