2:00 update

The nurse said that the doctor is almost finished removing the mass. All other organs are clear (answer to prayer). The reconnection of the stomach and pancreas etc will take almost another 2 hours. All is going well George is doing fine. Please continue to pray.

By the way I wanted to share with y'all what George said while the sedation was taking affect. His eyes were squinted and he pointed his finger to the anesthesiologist and said, "I'm blessed and everyhwere I go people are blessed because I serve a Big God. I've been looking forward to this surgery." George in rare form, oh wait that's normal form.

More later.....

Robin,

Thank you so much for the update. I know you have much on your mind, and we at home really appreciate your thoughtfulness and love to take the time to share your news as you receive it. Let me relieve you of any anxiety you might be feeling for your children during this separtion, by telling you all is well. The lamb is in the fold, and the other will be soon.

I know you are very well versed in God's Word, but, with the help of Beth Moore, I wanted to share with you some of what I've read today:

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strenghten, and establish you." (1 Peter 5:6-10 ESV)

Watching you and George these last couple of months really has been inspiring to Randy and me. Your Christ-given characteristics of humility, faithfulness, watchfulness, sober-mindedness, and steadfastness have been tested and proven. Just last week at BSF, one of the principles we learned is that the devil "tempts" in order for us to fail, but God "tests" in order that we shall stand when our faith is proven worthy. You and George are truly models of standing Christians. And, I have to confess: other than the last theological debate Randy and I had, we've probably never been closer in our marriage. It has been very refreshing to read together and pray together. Though we both had our faith and "religious" rituals, we have seldom been united in this way. However, we still have room for improvement as this isn't quite habitual, yet. Thank you for allowing Christ to fill you with His Spirit.

We love you, and look forward to seeing you soon...
