Thankful Thursday

Today is Thursday and as said by Lynn let us give thanks.

What am I thankful for this week? Here it is, please read on.

My brother in law who is also a missionary and who lives in our church was hospitalized last Tuesday morning.It was me and my husband who brought him to the hospital, he was experiencing abdominal pain and he was throwing up the whole Monday night so we brought him to the hospital.

The doctor found out that he has internal bleeding due to some pain killers he took for his toothache the last few days. Further lab test showed he has very low hemoglobin (red in the blood) so there was a need for blood transfusion. It was a major test again for me and my husband and for my brother in law because you know, missionaries aren't being paid and hospitalization means money here whether in government or private hospital.

But guess what? yes, missionaries are not being paid here on earth but surely God is taking care of them. He was out now from the hospital just this morning and he will be staying in our house for the mean time.I'm sure he will be able to rest well if he's in our home. Good thing we just fixed the bathroom light fixtures last week.

God has proven us His word again that "He will never leave us, nor forsake us" To God be the glory!

I also thank the Lord for giving us friends who are so supportive, my brother in law needed a blood donor and lots of them went to the hospital,very much willing to donate.

I thank God for sustaining me and my husband. My hubby donated also blood despite of the stress and sleepless night because he watched over his brother.

And through all these events..I still proclaim and I always will that GOD IS GOOD!!
