Going to the oncologist later today, please pray for encouraging words. Hopefully I will be scheduled for surgery so that we can go ahead and get this dastardly little piece of flesh out of my body; I feel like I’m walking around with a ticking-time bomb just waiting to metastisize all over, but I’m trusting the Lord to contain it until it is taken out. Please pray that this all turns out well, the Lord is providing a lot of peace; but I’m still really scared (pray for my wife too, she’s been a great encouragement, but this is really wearing on her as well, of course).

You all really don’t know how much we are appreciating your prayers, I know the Lord is working through them; keep them up!

In Christ
