Many of you pray for my mom, so here's her latest news.
As soon as I saw my mom on Sunday morning, I knew she had had her third stroke
. The left side of her face was sagging a bit and she could not speak clearly.
Wednesday she came home from the hospital with her speech much improved but still affected. She can swallow only smooth foods and must be careful with liquids: accidentally getting food or drink "down the wrong pipe" and into her lungs could lead to pneumonia.
Please continue to pray for my mom.
She was very encouraged and agreed in prayer with one of her doctors, who prayed that she would not have another stroke until the Lord is ready to take her home.
Please pray for Bonnie and me
as we learn what a dysphagia level 2 diet
is and discern how best to care for mom in this season.
Praise the Lord for translation progress.
In the last ALT
, I asked you to pray that the Lord would help us as a team to get as many chapters of John 13-19 as possible ready for the Feb 7 start of the next translation workshop, and that Emil Ninkure would have time to work on it with us.
The Lord did, and we did, and Emil did. Chapters 13-16 were ready.
Now you can pray that we can get John 17-19 ready
as soon as possible while the translators work on 13-16. Many outstanding issues in the Arop translation of these chapters await my attention.
We continue to be grateful to God for your partnership.
Serving our King together,
John Nystrom (& for Bonnie)
