june 4th – update

Kent is steadily improving now, one small step at a time. His current issues are exhaustion due to so much deep coughing, and an inability to get sleep because of all the coughing. His blood pressure spikes up when he coughs hard, and he has intentinal problems that we thought were due to new medication, but now drs. are suspicious that he caught something on his last trip to Africa. Whatever the cause, these problems are increasing daily in severity, so we need to ask the Great Physician for help. Please don’t let up in your prayers.

This evening, while we were talking, Kent admitted to me that during the night hours when he can’t sleep, he has been preparing the outline, chapter titles, and content for a new book. He said, “It is going to be a thriller!” He wants to write it this summer. I had to laugh. Who else would be so sick and be writing a book in his head? I was telling this to my brother, Don, and his comment was, “If God has plans for taking Kent to Heaven, He sure hasn’t told Kent about them!”

Every day seems to have its share of laughter and good experiences. It is so amazing. Thank you for sharing this journey with us. I’ll write again tomorrow night. Love, Davidene

We are and will keep knocking Heaven’s gate on Kent’s behalf. Please give him our love and assure him that we are praying and want to see this new project he is planning hit the presses. He never ceases to amaze us with his ambition for the kingdom.!

    Davidene, keep those updates coming. I am praying for the cough and that doctors figure out what he caught in Africa. Speaking of Africa, I hope those he ministered to in Africa caught his message, his mission and his momentum for the gospel. God is going to have to heal Kent if he is going to write that book. It should be a thriller!

    In the strength of our Savior,

    John and Nell

    for you both as you go through this journey. I am not surprised that Kent is writing the book in his head. No one on the face of this earth has as much energy as does Kent. Thanks for the daily updates. Remember how much you are loved by our Heavenly Father and many all around the globe. Even in this yolu impact so many by the faith and trust you both exhibit. You are reaching beyond us to many you don’t even know.
