It is hard to explain. We are at a loss for words.
You have overwhelmed us with your love — expressed through encouragement and prayer. Such a quick response to a prayer request.
We have sensed God’s presence in a fresh way and experienced the direction of His guiding hand.
KK has spoken with the surgeon today and we expect surgery the first week of December. We will pass on more specifics as they become available.
For now, we are
“…firmly rooted and being built up in Him, established in our faith…and overflowing with gratitude…”

On Tuesday (11.04.14) KK received the report that she has breast cancer. We met with a surgeon Thursday (11.06.14) and he thinks we caught it early and expects she will do well. No need to rush to surgery.
Since that time she had an MRI and we have met with multiple doctors to discuss surgical and treatment options. We hope to soon have a date for surgery. Pray for direction and clarity.
We are thankful for our prayer partners and will keep you posted through this site.

We have been challenged with remodeling the house and an extremely busy schedule.
I should have kept this site updated.
Stand by– I hope to have regular updates here soon.

I just spoke with the surgeon and he said “everything went as expected & according to plan.”
He even gave me before and after pictures taken by the scope — pointing out the evidence of stones and the need for the gallbladder to be removed. Decided not to post them online for those of you with a weak stomach. :-)
She’s in recovery now.
She will stay overnight for more antibiotics, etc and the we plan to take her home tomorrow.
We are thankful for God’s grace in caring for her, providing excellent medical care, and wonderful prayer partners like you.
Thank you again for your prayers.

We’ve been overwhelmed and blessed by your interest and concern.
Because this present ministry assignment is not in the local church, we do not feel the daily connections we once enjoyed with you. Your notes of encouragement have stirred up great memories.
We are blessed that so many of you care—and some of you after such a long time (when we do the math – we feel old :-)
Recovery & rest today. Surgery tomorrow.
Thanks for your prayers.

KK’s procedure (ERCP) was delayed by a couple of emergencies that jumped ahead of her.
They just completed the procedure and the doctor said he cleaned out “sludge” where stones had passed and installed a stint in the bile duct.
They will give her body a rest tomorrow and have the Gallbladder surgery on Wednesday.
We are blessed to have so many prayer partners and our friends here at NAMB and FBC Woodstock are taking good care of us.
Thanks again for your encouragement and prayers.

We have been encouraged this afternoon by your notes and prayers.
We just talked with the doctor and they are planning a procedure tomorrow (ERCP) to clear the bile duct and possibly place a stent.
At this point, they are planning to remove her Gallbladder on Tuesday. She is resting well (on meds) and has a great sense of peace.
Thanks again for your prayers.
