I have struggled with a liver infection since October 14th when I returned from a mission trip in Italy. This is why I had to stay in hospital for several weeks and take antibiotics. During all this time I waited for surgery, but God answered our prayers and the surgery was not necessary anymore. I continued with the antibiotics. Because of the situation I discovered that I also had gallstones. Now we pray that this will not involve surgery and that these stones will pass. On December 21st I will go again for a medical checkup in order to see how my body has responded to the treatment.

God gave me witnessing opportunities in the hospital and I was able to share the Gospel with 11 people. I prayed together with some of them before going through surgery and I saw that their hearts were touched. In those moments I understood that what you are is more important than what you do in life. When you go through things like these you cannot do too much but your character is being made manifest. This is when God works in you, molding you and teaching you the virtue of patience. This is when you feel the comfort of the Lord. I can personally testify that you feel God’s presence in moments like this and that He is ready to help.
