Thank you, sweet friends, for your continued care and concern for my Dad. Your prayers are appreciated.
I have a brief health up date for you, along with some ministry news.
As for his health, his hemoglobin count was down to 6.6 on Monday. He continues to need regular (almost weekly) blood transfusions. He started his new treatment, Cytoxin, almost two weeks ago. He saw his rheumatologist yesterday and is going to have to cut the dose in half because his white blood cell count has fallen way too low. Please pray that this treatment, even at the lower dose, will cause an increase in his red blood cells. Please also pray that he would remain healthy as this treatment will wipe out his immune system.
(Preaching at the new church, Gospel of Grace Fellowship)
Despite his ongoing health problems, I am so happy to be able to share with you the wonderful news that he has been able to return to the pulpit to preach an occasional sermon. It is such a blessing to hear him preach again. The new church is Gospel of Grace Fellowship, led by Pastor Eric Douma. You can hear the sermons at the website.
He also has a new CIC article, Cursed by Works or Blessed by Faith. All new CIC articles will be online only, no print newsletters will be mailed. You can sign up to receive and email when new articles are published here.
There is a blood drive being held for him and all blood types will help.

The one who lives under the protection of the Most High
dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
