How Beautiful Are the Feet

And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say,
How beautiful are the feet of them that bring good news. (Romans 10:15)

Robert is stylin these days in gorgeous surgical shoes, one for each
foot! He ended up in the ER a couple of days before Christmas, and
was treated for cellulitis in his foot and released to the care of an
excellent podiatrist. There are some issues that need to be dealt
with in both feet to help prevent recurrence of infections, and that
will begin happening with some medications and minor surgeries
when the current infection is cleared. In the meantime, several small wounds are bandaged,
and surgical shoes are necessary to protect his toes. Infections can quickly turn to amputa-
tions in diabetics, so it is important that these issues be dealt with quickly and thoroughly.
Looks like Robert is joining me with his own cant ignore health issues. Sigh.

On the bright side, we are confident that nothing comes into our lives but that it passes first
through the loving hands of our Father. Everything he allows, He uses for good. He continues
to chip away at things that shouldnt be in our lives, and polish things that should, making us
ever more fit to do the work He has for us. We value your prayers for us and our ministry!
