Jumping Hurdles

December 4, 2014

Back in high school, I had to jump hurdles during the track part of P.E. Let’s just say, it was not a thing of grace and beauty. I could basically get over the hurdle, but not in good time. But that was not a surprise as running in general was not my strong point.

Being a Bible translator for the Onobasulu people is like jumping hurdles. We set a number of intermediate goals. Some days, I run at my translation goal, and metaphorically sail over the top with grace. Most days, I squeak over the top with a scraped knee, but I’m on the other side. Occasionally, I run up to the hurdle, stop and sneak around the end of the hurdle and jog on down the track. Some days, I wipe out.

This week, I had a dental appointment and was excited that I could come home and say, “Look, Mom, no cavities!” Yesterday, I had a sonogram on my carotid arties. I get the report next week. I expect a good report, but this will make a good baseline for future tests. We also wanted to check because of family history. Next week, I have a stress test to see how my heart as recovered since my September heart attack. Pray that I get good reports from these cardiac tests. Today, looking at this hurdle, it feels like a huge, difficult hurdle.

There is also the hurdle of unbudgeted expenses.

Your generosity would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for praying for all of these needs.

Meet you at the race track! On your Mark! Get set, GO!
