Update from Milton


Kristy came through the surgery fine. Her spirits were very strong before surgery. She was unusually comforted and confident, and had a glow of the glory and grace of God on her countenance.

The doctors were pleased with the results. They did find and remove a "primary" tumor. They will not know definitively whether the tumor is malignant. They will run tests on the tumor over the next couple of days. If it is malignant, then additional treatments will start in 1-2 weeks.

Thank you for all your continued prayers, love and many kindnesses. God is at work in our lives and through this He will be glorified. I will followup with future blogs and some pictures as per Kristy's strict instructions. :^) You will really like the cute jewelry they put on her forehead. (One of her favorite colors is green.)

And by the way, last night was glorious.

Dear Milton and Kristy,
Thanks so much for the update. I am very glad to hear Kristy made it through the surgery okay. I am fasting today and praying for her complete healing. I'm confident God is going to use all of these things to show His love and power. We are sending loads of love and prayers your way. Give Kristy a gentle hug from me. Thanks.

Dear Brother Milton & Sister Kristy: Thanks for sharing the update. We received word today that your team would not be coming to be with us in the Dominican Republic next week. We certainly understand the reason for your decision. Please know that Kristy is in our prayers. We love and appreciate you. Nelson & Rennae de Freitas

Thank you, Milt, for taking the time to post. I'm praying. As I woke up this morning, Pacific time, my first thought was--Kristy's in surgery right now. And I prayed some more.

Much love.

Knew we could count on you for an update on your bride as soon as possible. Thank you so much - - I know this day has more than likely been tougher on you than on Kristy. Rest for awhile in God's grace; you'll need your strength for the days to come. Your (church) family is behind you 100% - thank you for being such an excellent pastor and a fine example of a "hero husband". - Sheila

Thank you for the update; please keep us posted.

Kristy always glows, so I'd like to have witnessed her carrying even more of God's grace and glory before her surgery.

And the other thing she always does is love you, Milton. She shares with gratitude and humility the blessing of being your spouse.

God's peace,

Thanks, Milton, for the update. I've been praying since early morning for God's healing touch on Kristy and will continue to do so. His Throne Room is being so barraged with prayers on Kristy's behalf He can't help but be pleased. He will be glorified in all of this. Has been already.

Hugs and prayers,

Thanks for the update, Milton. I've had all of you--especially Kristy--on my mind and in my prayers since early this morning. Anxious to see the "cute jewelry" you speak of. Having been a hospital patient more times than I care to remember, I'm imagining something really... uh... unique, to say the least. ;)

Take care of your bride, and let her know she has lots of prayers lifting her up today.

Thanks for giving us the update. I've been in a comparable situation and know how difficult it must be for you to leave Kristy's side to take the time to do this.
You both are in our prayers.

We thank you, Father, for bringing Kristy through the surgery. We thank you for all that you'll continue to do for her, in Jesus' name. Amen.

We're all pulling for you, Kristy.

God bless you, sister,
