Just a brief note to thank you so much for your prayers since we last emailed, and to bring you up to date with things.
We arrived home last Thursday morning on a cloud of prayer and had an appointment with our local GP at 2pm that afternoon. He arranged an appointment with a specialist in the Infectious disease unit at Addenbrookes hospital for 9:20am the next day, and sent off the biopsy from Angola to the lab.
As a result of the appointment at Addenbrookes, a CT scan has been arranged for Wed 7th November. He also took lots of blood and this evening the consultant rang to say that the results show nothing abnormal, and that the CT scan is pivotal, from seeing the results of the scan he will decide wether a further biopsy is necessary or not. Blood tests in Saurimo and Lubango showed raised leukocytes and lymphocytes but blood taken here has shown no abnormalities.
It has been humbling to see how the Lord has helped as I am now free from night sweats for two weeks, my appetite has returned and I’m no longer losing weight. Little by little I feel that the fatigue is diminishing and my vision is improving slowly as I don’t now feel that I have to mechanically focus all the time. Also no further glands or nodes are evidently appearing so we are encouraged by that.
We are absolutely sure that the improvements are due to the prayers of the Lords people, and we continue to look to the Lord for complete healing that will enable us to resume our service for Him in Angola soon.
Thank you again for your prayers and expressions of support at this time and please pray that we may have patience in waiting for appointments and diagnosis.
