A time to heal

Standard

We ask for your prayers for Ernie’s healing head.  Saturday night his house was broken into and there was an ensuing argument to get the person out of the house and wake up the neighbors. The invader grab a table leg from the dining room area and hit Ernie on the head with it.  Ernie wan unconscious (he was told for about 30 minutes) and was taken to the hospital in Petit Goave by Pastor Phonex.  Thankfully there was a surgeon in the hospital that was able to stop the bleeder he had and then stitch up the wound.

He has been experiencing dizziness and nausea since the incident and today went to see our friends at Lifeline Ministry.  They redressed the wound and then sent him for a CT scan  to make sure there is no other unseen damage.  The CT showed no fracture or brain damage. Praise the Lord!  So thankful for doctors and nurses who have provided care for him there in Haiti.

Ernie said the outpouring of concern from the neighbors there in the area where he lives has been very heart warming.  People have been coming by to visit and check on him constantly. God is so good!

 

“11 Teach me your way, Lord,  that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. 12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. 13 For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths, from the realm of the dead. 14 Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God; ruthless people are trying to kill me— they have no regard for you. 15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. 16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;  show your strength on behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you  just as my mother did. 17 Give me a sign of your goodness,  that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.”  Psalm 83:11-17
