Well... God just refuses to stop working. Amen. If you've been following the blog, you may remember the story about the cleaning lady accepting the Lord in May. This was right after she overheard my mom sharing the story of dad sharing the gospel and a tract with his palliative care nurse. Well... the nurse has been back, several times and just moments ago, prayed to receive Jesus Christ as her Saviour. She told my mom that, "Jesse is the talk of the healthcare circle. There is something so different and peaceful about him." He had the biggest smile that I have seen today. There is something about spreading the good news that gives life! Praise God that when we are weak he is still strong!
Health-wise, today his pulse is slightly weaker, breathing is shallower and he's a bit more sleepy yet he seems very full of life!
I wanted to share these inspired words that a close friend left on this blog back in May. I was so encouraged when I read it:
"I am continuously sharing with many people about a man who is finishing well. As his race may be coming to an end soon, he is choosing to finish strong, the way Paul did. Your dad has amazing things awaiting him in heaven. I have never known anyone like him and I am so blessed that he has been part of my life for 20 years. He is an encouragement to so many and will leave a legacy behind that will stay in people's minds forever; a man who fought to the very end, never gave up, and despite his circumstances, continued to take part in the great commission. Your dad is one of the greatest people I have ever known and I can already see him and Paul sitting together in the kingdom talking about all the things that they saw happen on this earth and about God's goodness and love!"
Praise God for all He has done, is doing and will continue to do!
