Two weeks ago today, after spending about two weeks of excruciating headaches prior, I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. I was devastated, knowing that speech would be difficult, & singing with our beloved Native Praise Choir would not take place for an unknown period of time. It's not been an easy time for me, as headaches continued & medicines left me nauseous & groggy. However, I am confident that God is with me, has never left me, & Jesus continues to be my Rock.
Others in the choir have been facing illnesses, & we seek your prayers. We also pray for little 12-yr old Rachel Scott, who has been with us, & is facing chemotherapy, beginning tomorrow. Pray for ongoing ministry.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)
