Judy had surgery last Friday to replace the lens in her right eye which had become increasingly cloudy. It was complicated by the fact that there had also been some deterioration in the cornea starting several years ago. So there was some doubt as to whether they would go ahead with the cataract surgery due to the increased risk (the cornea has an important role to play in helping the eye to recover). We are waiting to see how effective the lens replacement has been. We have a regime of two different kinds of eye drops, four times a day.
Hewers of Wood
Why Hewers of wood? When Joshua was moving Canaanites out of the promised land so that the Israelites could settle there, some Gibeonites tricked him into making a non-agression treaty with them, by pretending they had come from far away and were not locals. When Joshua discovered the deception, he protected their lives but made them servants, "hewers of wood and drawers of water" for God's sanctuary.
As Hewers today, we want to serve the people of God, principally by making his Word, the Bible, available to the Kasena of Ghana in their own language.
