Wednesday Afternoon

Gordy left a message a few hours ago saying that Tim is progressing well. He had the ventilator tube removed today. He has a bad headache, and has asked for prayer for the headache to go away. The fact that he has asked for this is good news. They want to get him out of the ICU soon, hopefully even today.

Please continue to pray that the pneumonia would go away.

Hey Tim,

Great news on your continued recovery. But can you believe it? The one day I can't make it to visit you is the day you choose to "wake up" and visit with people...not that I am at all complaining, mind you :) My prayers continue to be before the Throne that you might discover God's grace.

Blessings, my friend

I am so glad you are feeling better enough to know you have a headache! God bless you. I am praying you heal quickly. It sure helps to have a loving family surround you.

You and your whole family are in my prayers.

I can hardly wait for you to come home and we can sing this with you again.

"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see so clearly

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing Your praise
Than when we first begun

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away"

Blessings to all of you.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! Have been praying that the ventilator would go soon! Know when I've been in for surgery that I tend to heal faster after the tubes, needles, etc. go away. Hang in there, Tim. A comfort to know that God loves you even more than any of us do. :)

Aloha Tim ~
Wow ~ what joy was felt when we read of your progress today. Oh, the power of prayer! Was walking through the hotel tonight and there was a piano ~ instantly thought of you and prayed that very soon you will be playing and praising the Lord through your music. We always enjoy sharing in worship when you play and sing. We continue to pray for your speedy and full recovery.

To Gordy and Sandy ~ I have been moved to tears when reading all of the postings ~ what a testimony to the work you have done for the Lord! Your mission field is so much larger than South Hill Puyallup! We love you and continue to lift you all up in prayer.

We are in continual prayer for God's healing hand in your life.

I'll bet you have a sore throat, so ease up on talking or whispering. I know I will cry the very next time I get to see and hear you singing out in worship to the Father! Wow! Tearing up as I think about it.

Hey Gordy:

Heard at the Tuesday meeting about your "adventure". We are all thinking of you, and we are wishing the best for ALL of you. Having been in your shoes with my brother a few years ago, I know how hard this is. Stick with it, but be sure to get some sleep here and there. I assure you this will help more than you know!
