It was a long day in Shanghai. Got there around 11 after the two hour drive. The check in process was smooth. Then I had to drink 4-5 300ml cups of water. The test only took 10 minutes. It was a PET/CT scan combination. I paid extra for an English Translation, but at first they told me it would be Monday, but said the Chinese result/translation would be available at 6 p.m. Then they said the English translation would also be ready at 6. So, we went and had dinner and came back. But the English translation was not ready and won't be ready until Monday. The Chinese translation was too technical for Mr. Yang to interpret, and there were no doctors there.
So, at church today, I saw Pamfort, the Chinese doctor who comes to
the Thursday bible study. I don't know why, but I was not expecting to
see him there. He told me my eyes looked jaundiced, and then he called
Dr. Sheng and found out he will be working tonight. I have made
arrangements to go see him with my report. Dr.Sheng is the cardiac
doctor. He is working Sunday night! He told me it would be his pleasure
to see me. God is so good.
So, tonight I will go see Dr. Sheng
and hopefully, he can let me know. I assume there is a diagnosis in the
report summary. As always, your prayers are coveted. I have been beset
by various maladies from itchy skin to heartburn that has prevented me
from getting a good nights rest. So, I am rather worn down, exhausted
would be more precise. I have washed all my bed coverings to day in case
there were bed bugs, but even when I stayed in the Hotel in Zhenjiang
on Friday evening, the itchy skin was terrible, and I did not pack my
antacid. Last night was better, but I need a good uninterrupted rest.
Pleas pray that for me. Thank you again for support, your love, and your
Just a short note about church today. No one was available to come,
but I went anyway. I am glad I did. The Chinese Church generally has
baptisms twice a year for new members, and Easter Sunday is one of those
times. I lost count, but there were about 30 new members admitted
today. Then for the Lord's supper, the side I was sitting on did not
receive any of the bread and when the Pastor asked if there were any who
had not received the bread, all of our hands went up. She looked a
little worried, but then collected some of the plates to distribute. I
watched as some to there bread and broke in two to share with others. Ha
ha, after we all received some, she held up the plate and there was
bread to spare. The spirit of Jesus must have been breaking that bread!
So, as many of you all awaken to see this message, I pray that you will give
thanks to God and have the opportunity to honor Him with your presence
in His house today.
Until the next time...He is Risen!
