We were much like most other families in America. There were places to go, things to do, and a schedule to keep. My wife Karen and I had been leading an African Mission ministry for ten years. We were partnered with Compassion International and four local churches in Kenya. I am a Deacon at my home church in Lansing, Michigan and I Mentor men in the US and in Kenya. My life style is an active one participating in a variety of strenuous activities. Disc golf, jogging, and hunting to name a few. Our life was fast paced and in hindsight I believe we often took life for granted. I was clueless of what life had in store for me in 2019. The doctors said I was Lucky To Be Alive and even now I get cold chills up my spine when I think about how close I came to death. Suddenly without warning my life was filled with uncertainty. The year was full of raw emotions and my faith was tested to the limit. At times I felt like David standing in front of Goliath. It is not easy to face giants in our lives and a strong faith in God, a good wife and prayers from countless people were all necessities on my journey. Walk this journey with me as you feel what I was feeling. At times there was fear of the unknown and a feeling of being totally alone. At other times doubt in my quality of life or even if I would be alive at all. As I called out to God for help you can see how he guided me every step of the way. I received hope and faith which enabled me to continue the fight. With each little victory my faith grew. Faith that God had more for me to do on this earth. This faith gave me peace on my journey and allowed me to focus on the task at hand of a full recovery. Now I am exciting to still be alive and following the path God has for me. Thank you Jesus.
