I had a good nights rest and have enjoyed a quiet restful day without many effects left from the Malaria with the exception of fatigue. No relapse symptoms thus far and I continue to pray that none will occur. Holy Spirit and I along with my Bible have taken an incredible journey through Esther today….preparing to teach tomorrow, Lord willingly that I am able to go on as scheduled.

Your prayers and words of encouragement have meant more than you could know. To be so far from home and experience a tough illness was not easy, yet, I am thankful that God in His goodness has placed me in an area that I have internet. I try very hard to never take for granted what a precious gift the internet is for me. I cannot imagine being here and not being able to communicate home.

To those who have walked in the missionary journeys ahead of me here, and to those who still today serve in areas here in Africa and all over the world that offer no communication, I stand in awe of your commitments and willingness to do so. I honor you today and quote a verse of scripture that first touched my heart many years ago, Romans 10:14-15, “How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news”!

If I could, I would wash those beautiful feet today! One day when we have finished our missionary journeys here on this earth and we are spending eternity together in heaven, I plan to tell you thank you. For I now see clearer than ever before whats been ask of you, thank you for ALL you are doing for the Kingdom of God.

Love to all,

Joy Breedlove
