Well It Only Seemed Fair

For the purposes of fairness I checked myself into the ER last night (or I should say this morning) at about 1am. It only seems right being that Stacey was there last week. All kidding aside I woke up at about 12:30am with intense pain in my abdomen. I tried to let it pass, but it only got worse. So I woke up Stacey and we headed to the ER. At about 5am they determined that I have a large gallstone that was blocking the bile from working its way into my system (fortunately they did not wait until 5 to give me some pain meds, hence the peaceful look in the photo). In the end the pain is gone for now, but they said my Gallbladder will have to come out soon! Seriously!?

  1. We are praying for you, Dave! At least you're getting all these health issues out of the way now before you're in Cameroon. Please let us know if we can do anything for you or the fam!

  2. Hi, I just came by from the WT FaceBook page. Have that gall bladder out! You will feel so much better.

    I was in Haiti with West Indies Mission (later WT) for a term teaching MK's. I have friends in Cameroon now, one couple with Sil, the other with Converge Worldwide (formerly Baptist General Conference.) I'll be interested in following your blog.

  3. Dear friends
    For now , I cannot even recall how, but I read an article by one of you, was intrigued and heart captured by your unique way of thinking…as a missionary. As one led into love of missions at same I became a believer at 16, your fresh perspective has challenged me on so many levels….now at 80. Thank you for you faithful, consistent service to the Lord . If I see your email, I will open before any other….as that is how much the Lord has used your views, thoughts and questions. Thank you. I enter in with praying for your work, your family and your walk with the Lord. Thank you for being a source of rich stimulation of thought. There is no need need to answer, but know I am enjoying praying with y’all day by day. As y’all serve for the Kwakum people group be encouraged Jesus prays for them …and you. Jeremiah 50:33 This is what the Lord Almighty says:

    “The people of ‘Kwakum’ are oppressed,
    and the people of Judah as well.
    All their captors hold them fast,
    refusing to let them go.
    34 Yet their Redeemer is strong;
    the Lord Almighty is his name.
    He will vigorously defend their cause
    so that he may bring rest to their land,
    warmly Jo Mantravadi
