Friends and Family,
Mark finished a round of chemo last Thursday so now he is recovering and gearing up for his last treatment, next Tuesday, November 9th!
This last round was OK - he didn't feel very good toward the end but for the most part it was tolerable. Now we are so excited that he only has to do this one more time! After the last treatment he will have a scan to see how things look as well as a colonoscopy. After those two tests and we get the all clear he will have his port taken out and won't have to go back for 3 more months!
We are praising the Lord that we are almost to the end! God has allowed Mark to come through this treatment in a remarkable way! There are so many people that meet him that don't even know what he is going through! A couple of weeks ago we had "Fields of Faith" with FCA and when Mark was up at the microphone speaking I could see his pump - I sat there listening to what he was saying, seeing how good he looked and knowing that pump was every few minutes pumping more chemo into his blood - I sat there in awe of what God has done for us and in us - it truly has been amazing to see God work in so many ways!!
Please pray for Mark on this last leg of the treatment and for a cancer free diagnosis after all testing is complete!!
We don't know what we would have done without all the prayer support that we have had - we are humbled by the support and grateful beyond words!
With love and gratitude,
Mark and Lee
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord...to show forth Thy lovingkindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness every night.
For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you.
My meditation of Him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
