what a mighty GOD we serve

yesterday at 4:00 i had symptoms of full-blown flu.  severe headache, nausea/vomiting, strong cold symptoms, high fever, body aches and chills.  we were working through the process of canceling our flights to ethiopia. 

today at 4:00 i had symptoms of a minor cold.  mild headache, sore throat, NO fever.  we're now working through the process of finishing our to do-list to leave on tuesday morning.

i think there is NO OTHER explanation than healing by the one who is like NO OTHER.  if i've learned nothing else over these past two+ years of our adoption journey, i've learned that the lord can most clearly display his power and glory when things are so seemingly dark and hopeless.  a small light is virtually imperceptible in a bright room; but put that same small light in a room full of darkness, and it stands out like a glowing beacon.  thank you so very much for your prayers.  please continue to pray for full healing for me (abby's already there!) as well as continued health for the rest of the five lewis crew.

"now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in christ jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! amen."
ephesians 3:20-21

Safe travels! Enjoy your first encounter with Africa. I love how when I just landed on your blog it said "A visitor from Kampala" with a little Ugandan flag :)
