Last month, I asked you to pray for Dave Black because he had contracted malaria. He is still weak, but is recovering from the malaria.
Now, I ask you to pray for his wife, BeckyLynn Black. Yesterday, on his blog (Sunday, August 9, 2009, at 6:50 pm – y0u’ll have to scroll down to find the story), Dave reported that BeckyLynn has been diagnosed with “a rare and aggressive type of uterine cancer”. You can read her report here: “To Go On Living Is Christ“. She meets with an oncologist today.
BeckyLynn writes this in her post:
Let me be very clear: I do not long to live. What I long for is that I be useful for the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus. Iâ€™m in the same position as the Apostle Paulâ€¦.I am ready for Heaven, to see His faceâ€¦but if I can be useful for the Kingdom, to help believers (including my own family) grow strong, to influence others for Jesus, then I am willing and happy to remain on earth a while longer.
If we all thought this way, it would help us keep life in perspective.
I’ll keep you updated whenever I hear anything.
