From the Garrisons in the Dominican Republic

“Our work with Abundant Life Baptist Church in La Vega is going well.  The church has been stabilized and has been consistently running between 30-40.  However, our work on the facilities has screeched to a halt.  We are still waiting on the government to come and connect the water and sewer lines and public utilities to the church.  We are still in need of $12,000 to finish the roof on the main part of the building.  Please pray that the Lord will provide these needed funds and the government will get busy with the needed utilities. While home in May for our daughter’s wedding I had an eye exam.  Normally this is no big thing, but they found that I had cataracts caused by the medication I am on and they needed to be removed.  This, too, is normally no big deal, but you that know me at all know that I am not normal.  I had the cataract surgery, and a few days after developed a staph infection inside my right eyeball, which required immediate emergency surgery.  The vision in my left eye has improved, and I now can see out of it with the aid of glasses (I was supposed to not need glasses after the cataract surgery).  I am starting to be able to see a little out of the right eye, like shapes, light and color, but not enough to even try to use glasses yet.  One specialist said it was amazing that they were able to save the right eyeball, let alone regain some vision in it.  The doctors say I will probably need two more surgeries to try and improve my vision, but they want to let it heal from all the initial trauma before doing anything more.  Please pray for healing and patience during this time.”
