Grateful, once again, for Ro’i, who was there with me post-surgery!
The last surgery on the 6th, albeit more minor than any in the last 11 months, has definitely kicked me about more than expected. I’m just now getting outside for short walks, gaining strength and loss of pain, incrementally-incrementally. I do have some minor tingling in my left few toes and right longer fingers (tips of each); possibly as a result of the spinal drain they used during and post-surgery.
We had a blessed though somewhat lonely Easter, with all the kids either being sick or away. Bryan was doing a shoot/YouTube/Matthew Beem, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. and Eliana has Covid … again. She’s on the mend. It was a deep journey for Nora and me on Easter, with me still on the mend and our hearts heavy in all this.
I’ve missed a good number of ZOOM meetings the past two weeks, and all concerned have been so gracious and loving, knowing I’ll get back in the saddle soon enough. Even this morning at 6a, I couldn’t make the FLT-Field Leadership Team time, and missed the Middle-East meeting yesterday … truly missing those and the hearts on those such calls.
Ukraine: at this time we as an organization have chosen to channel funds into other organizations better equipped to handle the needs in and outside Ukraine. Since we focus more on sustainable solutions, we are at present not initiating any DR-Disaster Relief efforts. That may change in the future, especially as my health improves. A best example would be me personally initiating funding(s) to an organization, which tapped me for deciding how they might send funds. My vote was entirely for a separate organization that is, on the ground, youthful, energized, community-based, living on shoe-strings budgets, mobile, honest, hands-on, in and outside Ukraine … and on the list of benefits via them.
Knowing you are concerned, we take all confidence in restoration and the journey ahead … ever excited in knowing … for our good and the good of others.
Thanks for taking the time to read through this short update. We love you.
Nora and I are grateful to have you in our lives and!
