The film that was removed by laser on his right eye Monday, worked and he can see so much better out of that eye. We are praying once the cataract is moved from the left, he will see things he hasn't seen in a long time!
Church was wonderful last night. Our Pastor is so burdened for people who are lost in this old world and can't seem to find a way to 'get out and get help'.
Point: his brother in law has been a hard, hard drug addict for 34 years. Pastor received a call this past Saturday night, saying if he didn't get some type of help, he would die within 24-48 hours. So the Pastor and his wife immediately called contacts they knew near Louisville, Ky.(where the BIL is living), got up early Monday morning and drove there to see him.
As of last night, the brother in law is staying 1 day here with the Pastor's family, then he has been accepted to a local drug treatment program and will begin there Friday, or tomorrow. This is an intense program and he will be there for a minimum of a year. No one can call or visit except immediate family. He is not married, but has(had) a live in girlfriend and she is also addicted to drugs..just not as bad. She will not be allowed to visit or call.
Last night at church, he opened his heart and told us about his brother in law, and requested prayer, constant prayer, that he will stay with the program and get well.
I don't know if you have ever had anything like this in your family or in a friend's family, but I so appreciate my Pastor for putting his life on hold, to care and help someone else. I posted on Facebook last week that I was so thankful to have a Pastor that cares, and he truly does. He challenged us to do the same - care, and his Scripture was taken from Jude 1:22.
The 'bus' (car) to the surgery center will be leaving around 7:30, so I wish you a good Thursday.
GOD BLESS US EVERYONE
