Last month, we had a scare with Moses. After riding his bike to school, he collapsed and had trouble breathing. Fortunately, Caleb happened to be at school, taking Lydia in the car,  and attended to Moses during his attack, which seems to have been a combination of dehydration and asthma. Lydia was also with Moses, and she was the one who noticed that at one point he had stopped breathing. He came to, with arousal, but it was touch and go. An ambulance was called, which arrived a long 30 minutes later. With hydration and strong asthma medicine, he improved quickly, though he was weak for days later.


It has taken Moses a while to get back into the swing of school, and his extracurricular activities, but I was thankful to go hear him in the school worship band this past Friday (who knew he could sing?!?!)

Two weeks after his collapse, at a Bible study led by one of his fellow students, Moses recommitted his life to Christ. Are the 2 events related? Hard to know, but we are thankful.

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 16: 9-11

    I am thankful to hear the good news about Moses.😊. It must have been very frightening for all of you. God was obviously watching over him.

    Cheers and love for good health for you all. Liz Cart

    Such a lovely testimony about Moses. Yes, God certainly uses everything to bring salvation to the household and definitely writes straight with crooked lines! We rejoice with you all. We hope to meet Moses one day!

    Oh Louise what a scare you all had with Mose’s attack. We are hearing terrible things happening in Cameroon and other missionary troubles and we pray and pray for you all asking God to protect you. The enemy is out to destroy the good news of the gospel. But greater ( Praise God) is He ( Christ in you) than he who is in this evil world. So happy to hear Mose’s is safe and his recommitment to Christ.

    Hello, I sent an urgent email to you both several days ago but I haven’t received a reply. I might have used old email addresses that I had from many years ago. I would really appreciate your thoughts so please could you contact me on the email address below.
    Gratefully yours

    Dear Louise, Caleb and family,
    I rejoice with you that Moses is not only safe after such a health scare, but that he is serious about following in the Way of our Lord. I also give thanks for the many ways you are faithful. The post about helping women receive new prostheses is so moving! God is using you to share His Love in such tangible ways. I continue to ask that the Lord will bless and keep you all.
    In Jesus’ Name,

    Dear Caleb, I got a heartbreaking phone call from your dear father today, Monday, March 25 , telling me he is on hospice with only a few days to live! I’m sure you are either in Chapel Hill or en route there. I can’t reach the Ludingtons – they must have left Chapel Hill. Information has no listing for them. I would like very much to receive sometime the obit and copy of the Service Bulletin. Your parents are such good and longtime friends. I have many happy memories of all of you. I send my heartfelt sympathy and love to you and Louise – to all the King family. Liz Cart
