It's a good day in Namatala!

Good Monday morning!
I have just received an update from Aida (in her words)...

1.  Baby Loru was taken back to the hospital last Friday (Aug. 12) and he had surgery on Saturday, Aug. 13, praise God everything went well!  He is recovering.  The parents are always coming to church and they are thankful.

2.  Agnes continues to improve, and she looks much better, every Sunday she comes to church.

3.  Regina was taken to the hospital and the results showed that she had STI which is something like candida, she was put on medication, but still she is not feeling well.  I think we need to take her back and test for HIV.

4.  Continue to pray for the children and their families.  They are dealing with malaria but getting medication for it.

5.  Continue to pray for us because the price of food is going high every day, it is difficult to budget.

Aida wrote, "Greetings to all of our sponsors, we love you soooooo much, Aida and the IChooseYou family."

Thank all of you for your prayers.  Please continue to lift all of them up and the rest of the IChooseYou children and their families.  As we all know our prayers are all BUT the BEST thing we can do...We love our family in Uganda but the Lord loves them more than we do!!!  As they say in Uganda....God is good all the time...All the time God is good!!!


 This is Baby Loru/David and Mama in the hospital after his second surgery.
 Agnes....looking very smart!  She is doing so much better!
 Regina getting her CT scan done.
Baby Loru/David and Mama Loru and Papa Sulli...I think this was taken before the last surgery.

What's going on....Is...

Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd better give you an update today.  So here we go:

Ted is doing pretty well.  The doctor in San Antonio could not help us but we saw a doctor last week in Round Rock that thinks he can...Thank you Lord!!  Ted will have a procedure on Aug. 23...would love to have your prayers for that!

Crosstalk is going great!!...Had CT Community groups going all summer and they were amazing....thank you CT leaders for your faithfullness!  Rise Retreat was last weekend and it went very well...Callie, John and everyone ... great job!!

Now for Baby Loru/David:
They were late getting to the hospital last week and the doctor left so it was postponed until yesterday (Thursday) kind of.  Glenn sent Callie a text this morning (they are 8 hours ahead of around 4ish in the pm for them) saying that they were at the hospital for cleansing today and that the surgery will be I am thinking that his surgery will be on Saturday...Friday night/early Saturday morning for us.  I ask again for  your prayers...for the Lord to guide the surgeons hands, for Him to guide the nurses and everyone else that is working on Baby Loru/David and for peace and comfort for Mama Loru/David (Maureen) and Papa Sulli.  Also for this to be the last surgery for this little guy and that he will grow up strong and that the Lord will use him and his family in mighty ways to serve the Kingdom!!

Thank all of you, the IChooseYou family, for your love, your prayers and your faithfullness.

I will update you when I hear something...I hope all of you are blessed today!

Baby Loru/David's second surgery

Well Hello IChooseYou Family,

It's been such a long while since I have updated the blog....We have been home about 6, how time flies and how life does keep on going.  Ted and I have been very busy....going to doctors and hospitals and I'm back at work with Crosstalk.  Ted did have to have 2 more units of blood when we returned and we have a doctors appointment on Monday with a new doctor...looking to see if he can help with that darn ole tumor in his small intestines.  We would love you prayers concerning this and I will try to be better at updating the blog to let you know what is going on.

Crosstalk is going great!!!  We are getting ready for the students to get back to Texas State...we will meet some Freshmen this weekend at "Rise"...go proud of what you are doing!

Now...for Baby Loru/David....

If you remember, this is the baby that we found in the village of Namatala with the intestinal problem.  He had his first surgery when we were still there and he has done great with the wonderful nursing care that he has gotten from Becca and Taylor while they were still there and by Paul after they left.

Well...tomorrow, Friday...late tonight for us...Baby Loru/David will have his second and last surgery!!  Please everyone pray that he does well with this surgery and that the doctors and nurses will be guided by the Lord throughout the procedure and afterwards.  Also, let's pray for comfort and peace for Mama Loru/David (Maureen) and Papa Loru/David (Sulli).  God is still in the miracle business and we have been blessed to watch how His miracle has unfolded in the lives of Baby Loru/David and his family!!!

If you are wondering why I am calling him Baby Loru/David....David (which I need to start calling him) is his new Christian name...oh our God is so good!!!

So, watch for the next update on this miracle!!!

Hope all is well with all of you.
