Tim Update

Thank you so much for your concern and prayer.  I am amazed at how well I’m doing.  I couldn’t walk more than about 10 meters in Angola without angina and difficulty breathing.  I’ve been walking an hour and a half briskly every day with virtually no symptoms (only brief angina walking steep hills).  One day, I walked an hour and jogged for about 10, 30 sec stretches with no symptoms.  I am so very grateful that my Father’s grace is so evident and that it appears that He still wants to use me.  There’s so much to do.


My cardiologist confirmed with his colleagues that medical treatment is best without other intervention.  So I am glad to be returning to Angola on Sunday (depart Thursday) after a full, good week in Ohio.


I remain so grateful for your interest, care, concern and prayer.  I’m a blessed man.




He asked for strength that he might achieve,
he was made weak that he might endure;
He asked for health to do larger things,
he was given infirmity that he might do better things;
He asked for power that he might impress men,
he was given weakness that he might seek God;
He asked for wealth that he might be free from care,
he was given poverty that he might be wiser than carefree.
He asked for all things that he might enjoy life,
he was given life that he might enjoy all things;
He received nothing he asked for.
He received more than he ever hoped for.
His prayer was answered!

PS. Please forgive me if you didn’t hear from me.  I was able to connect with so few people during these few days.  Your email or phone call was greatly appreciated and I will try to touch base with you in the next couple weeks.  – tim
