the day was actually really weird. i remember lying around a lot, friends stopping by, theological discussion and the world longest letter (even longer than yours, mom!) from salim. it made me smile and put the letter down and laugh repeatedly. not the drugs–it was a great letter. i also remember quite a bit of prayer and LOST and papaya seeds that are supposed to help but NOTHING IS HELPING.
i feel so loved. still extremely terrible, but so loved. update: the guys are gonna be here tomorrow. hopefully their bags make it too! 😀
now to be all better.
the following are SOME of the 27 or so replies i received since this morning. i also had a personalized get well card from Carlo complete with fantastic adorable critter pictures.
Find garlic, hot peppers, ginger root and the strongest alcoholic drink you can find, blend them all together and keep sipping it. It will kill the bugs. The alcohol attacks the cell wall and the hot acids kill them.
I am praying for you.
Sometimes being sick is a good thing.
I don’t know whether in this case it is or not.
So now you can spend more downtime praying,
And seeing if you can find some antibiot
this is me sending you a SUPER HUGE HUG.
and noting all aspects of your note.
you’re doing wonderful things there. and get well!
Don’t have a lot of time to reply. Actually on my way to work. Just wanted to say that I’ll be praying for you!
Get well soon Becca!
Keep up the great work, may God’s name continue to be glorified, and be certain that you, Dan and Ramon are being prayed for.
I was awakened last night…gave me plenty of time to pray for you…my overwhelming sense was that “God is on the throne, and still in control…”.I know that the travel mess is just what it is…a mess…but maybe the Lord is working on Ramon and Dan’s hearts during this time, stretching “their” faith and letting them grow their trust in Him. Circumstances are something we can’t control, but we can still praise God and know He has a plan, then try to let it go. I also prayed a lot for you…I hate hearing you are sick and that it’s your belly, knowing how yucky that can be. I hope you can manage to feel better QUICKLY…but until you do, take the time to lay low and just pray, and let your body get well. You are one hearty soul. Bec…He won’t give you more than you can endure…but it sure isn’t fun. We are all praying for you back home. Keep taking your meds and get well. Wish we could beam over there and hug you and take care of you. It’s cold and snowy here…we are all sick of the cold and wish we could escape. I look forward to our getaway in May and hope you can go with us. It’s nice to look forward to beach time. Love you tons and hope you sense all the prayers going up
Hi. Becca Sorry yo here that your plans fo the weekend are not goining well

God,keep in faith.Barb and I will be praying for you. Not just for the
weekend but also
for your health, and God,s plan. Take care,we love you, God Bless you
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put
my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my
soul. -Psalm 143:8
You’re truly glorifying the Lord the most when you’re trusting whole heartedly in Him:) He has formed and planned each step before you and HIS will will be accomplished no matter what. No weapons formed against Him shall prosper! May Psalm 139 give you encouragement today and I will be praying for you. I love and miss you!
Oh man, I will definitely pray. God’s really making a testimony out
of you and now Dan and Ramon, and just all you’re going to be still
trying to do in Kenya. It’s exciting and God will pull through. I’m
sorry you got sick, but amoebas got nothing against Him either.
I’ll keep praying!
Thanks for keeping us updated. I know we are praying and prayed as a large group for you last week. One thing I learned this year is that God has His own timing. When something goes wrong sometimes it’s hard for me to tell if it’s God’s way of changing things or the devil trying to screw things up. But, I do know that your hearts are in the right place, God is sovereign, and he will use you all for His glory but maybe in a different way than expected.
I hope things start swinging back in your favor and in the mean time we will all be praying!
Hey Becca – your Jesus loves you!!
Dearest Rebecca, Surely God’s grace and mercy will follow you all the days of your life. Be encouraged today! Today is the day the Lord has made and He rejoices that you are part of it. He does His best work when you are weak so get ready for some powerful miracles from the Lord. You are greatly loved here among us and among the heavenly beings. Emmanuel.
Oh my little Rebecca!! I will pray……Hang in there sweetie, God is in control and He hears and answers our hearts cry.
Lord Jesus, please heal my dear sister and be her Great Physician in this time of illness. Give her a speedy and miraculous recovery
and restore her to 100%, we know only you can do it. Extract the stomach pain, cramps and disease.
We pray for Dan and Ramon Lord, that you would intervene and dot every “i” and cross every “t” and give them a peace that passes all understanding and patience with each other in this stressful time. May you be in control and what the enemy meant for evil, turn it to good. May they be suited up with your FULL armor of God to do battle Eph 6:10. Give them safe and fruitful travels to Tanzania next week.
And in all that Becca says, does and where she goes may the fruit of her lips be sweet as honey to glorify and magnify Your Holy and Precious Name. May there be no other idols before her and may she serve you with all her heart, mind, soul and strength and GIVE to her the strength and WISDOM and discernment to do so.
She lives for you Lord, please provide for her needs and prove yourself Faithful even when we are faithless. Love her as no other can Lord and help her to be encouraged that there are people in Rochester “standing in the Gap” for her in prayer. Put her heavy on my heart often and may the fervent prayer of a righteous man avail much, even in America. We love you and it is in Jesus Name we pray, AMEN!
Love you sister XXOO Miss you!! Keep us updated!!
This means war! From what I’ve been hearing, things are escalating all over the place. I’d like to say, it’s just stuff and circumstances, but I don’t think so.
Are you receiving meds and medical doctor care for the dysentery?
Jesus, in Your name, I ask You to place Your hand on Becca and absorb the bacteria that causes this sickness. Raise her up and give her strength to stand today. Give her body real rest and real peace. Through the way You empower Becca to rise up in the midst of this sickness, let people see You today.
Father, Becca is “just a girl,” but in You she is a mighty woman of God. She is weak, but You are strong. Walk with her and lead her by Your hand through this dark valley.
Your plans are set in eternity. Accomplish Your will, move and change history in Your sovereign power, and be pleased to use Becca in that process, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thank you, Becca. Please keep on writing your blog. You make all of us experience what you are living — a wee bit vicariously, of course, but you’re a great writer.
Be at peace.
