February 20

A few days ago a friend reminded me that in the midst of a struggle it is easy to become frustrated with the word “process”, yet God’s plan for our lives IS the “process” and it is IN the “process” that we know Him more.

This is no doubt a learning process.  Last week, after finding out that the MEG machine was still not operational, we began to seek possible options around us to get this done and to try to move ahead with a plan.  Well, after a couple of very stressful days -and many conversations, phone calls and e-mails, we realized we don’t completely understand everything that this technology involves, so we scheduled a new appointment to see Dr. Market again this Monday February 21 to discuss the relevance of this test and to decide what’s best for this specific case.

This part of the process taught us a little more about the intricacies of the medical world, but it taught us a lot about ourselves, about how we need to work together and about how we can serve each other in this journey.  So, today I thank God for the “process”.

  1. Hi Jonathan and Karla,
    We have been praying for you guys all during this time. We just wanted to say that we are thinking of you and if we can do anything at all besides pray, we are here (in the US!). I (Edith) am wondering if you have considered coming up to Vanderbilt in Nashville, it is an incredible learning hospital with the best doctors in just about any area you can think of. I will be having my surgery there in June. Where we would really like for you to go is to M. D. Anderson in Houston. It is the best cancer facility in the world, as far as our family is concerned. Don’s sister in law, Reba, has had cancer six times and it was when she went out there that they were finally able to diagnose and eradicate the different cancers that she had. She is here with us today and living cancer free. That is a miracle that God did, but M. D. Anderson was instrumental in it.
    Your faith is amazing. God is teaching you so many things through this that is being a blessing for those around you too. Stay strong, run the race well! Edith and Don

  2. I am praying for you, for Jonathan, your children, and all of your family. I can’t imagine how you must be feeling. I’m reminded of a church sign I saw MANY years ago, during a tough time in my life…. “My Child, I have everything under control. I LOVE you. God.”

  3. Jonathan,
    My brother, Kevin Davis, told me about your situation and how you continue to praise God through it all!
    I just wanted to let you know that I copied some of your words from one of your first posts talking about how God knew about this, and that He is in control, and sent them to a dear friend just diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. You will probably never meet LeeAnne, or myself for that matter, but I just wanted you to know what an inspiration your words were to her!
    I told Jo-Jo about this, but was afraid that he might forget to mention to you how God used you to touch someone in LaGrange, GA. (I went to India with your church, and my brother, and met Jo-Jo there. He came an spoke to my kids as I’m a Children’s Director at FBC, LaGrange.
    You and your family continue to be in my prayers during this time.

    Joyfully in Jesus,
