On day 3, we praised God for plane tickets that were given to us.
On day 5, we praised God as we were embraced by all the ones who have come to Christ in His body in Sucre Bolivia during these years of work.
On day 7, we praised God as we boarded a plane to seek medical care in the States on day 6 and were received in the airport by 30 loved ones.
On day 8, we praised God for Dr. Stanley as he established our diagnosis here in the States and arranged for the Mayo Clinic to see my case.
On day 11, we praised God for results of our CT scan that showed us that the cancer had not spread to my lungs.
On day 14, we praised God for Dr. Fleming, my surgeon, who agreed to doing his services for free, and who worked hard to help us in finding others who would donate their services.

On day 24, we praised God for Dr. Fleming and the surgery team along with the anesthesiologist team that were donating their services for the surgery. Zion's prayer today was. "Thank Lord for mom's big owee, and thank you that she is going to get better." The surgery went great!
On day 26, we praised God for the League house we would stay at for only $15 a night two blocks from the hospital.
On day 30, we praised God for getting to go with family for a good weekend and continue healing
Day 31, we continue to praise God for His continual care and providence.
