Again, group, thank you all for praying. Those of us in our church caring for Phil met last night (Thursday) for prayer for wisdom about where to go from here. I reminded them that two days ago when we visited, Phil was alert and not confused, although still in pain. I know that at that time we talked to Phil about dying and about how there is a big difference in Christians dying and non-Christians dying. He agreed with our pastor that, if he hadn’t been so seriously ill and in pain, none of his family would ever hear about Jesus and the life he gives, and he agreed that his sufferings were worth that. More than anything, he was given hope that Jesus is especially with us in need, in the valley of the shadow of death. Yesterday when I went to see him his pain medicine had been increased so that he said he was not in pain, but it was difficult for him to remain awake, even to drink one of his protein shakes. So when we prayed last night, we were given to understand that Phil will be going home soon, but that this is a victory for him. As I was reminded (when I stubbornly found that hard to believe), when Phil first came to us he had on-and-off-again plans for walking in front of a train to end his life. So we spent the rest of the time crying, but not crying like those in despair. Instead, like those in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, we are comforted by “the God of all comfort…so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction”. So please pray for Phil, now out of pain, but hopefully out of the oppression of the enemy, and for us as we minister to him and his non-Christian family. I’m sorry this is so long, but I can’t tell this without testifying of the incredible grace and love of Jesus. Thanks for praying. And I am still praying for Jun for both kinds of healing.
