Greetings to you all,
Well today, I (Israel) feel well enough to write the update. My lovely wife has been doing a wonderful job letting you all know my State.
Well on Thursday night I had to return to the hospital. My pain grew greater and greater to the point that I could not bear it any more, so now I lay here in my bed again wondering which step the Lord would have me take next. I have found a great peace in the Lord in all of this. I know that the Lord has placed me here. I don’t know what His plan is yet for me, but I know that it is something. I know that my legs are gone but God will give me a new set of legs. I know that I will not be able to do everything with them, but it will be just the things that He has for me to do. I am so looking forward to doing that thing God has for me. I thank God for taking my legs even though it is a trial for me. I have found such a peace and joy in laying here on this bed with no legs. I am just thankful to have my life and it is a great miracle that I can still hold the hand of my lovely wife, and for that I am thankful for beyond measure.
I am doing much better but still in quite a bit of pain. The doctors are still trying different methods of pain killer to keep my pain under control. So please pray that we can find the answer to my pain, so that we can come home.
I would like to personally thank you all for the prayers, love, emails, money, help, and time that you all had given. Each one has given so much. Some may have more to give than others and some may give the widows mite but it all is a lot in the sight of God. I did not ask for it, nor do I deserve it but it is a great gift .You have given a cold cup of water to one of God’s children and He promises to bless you. Again, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sometimes I think the word thank you is just not enough but I have no other words to say, but thank you from the bottom of my heart.
God bless you all,
From Israel & Cori
