Down But Not Out

These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace.In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33

It has been a month of tribulation--both cars broken down, washing machine and freezer not working properly, bad bladder and kidney infection for Kay, unexplained rashes for us both, infestation of bees in our kitchen and termites in our bathroom....

And yet we are of good cheer, and have peace! These things are so minor. We have seen God do SO much in our lives and the lives of others that we can never doubt His goodness.

Last year, a woman in one of Kay's Bible study groups almost died from tuberculosis. Swaziland has the highest rate of TB of any country in the world and many we know have lost their lives to this horrible disease. But God overcame TB in the life of Nonhlahla! She is now part of our hospital ministry team, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ to those who are dying without hope. She loves to tell the story of how He healed her heart and her body!

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony....Revelation 12:11

Nonhlanhla says, "Jesus healed me!"
