Tucson, Arizona

We got to park behind a church in Tucson, for about five weeks in December. We were able to help a church here, but it was a bit limited as the Christmas season was here too! We do have a retired WorldVenture missionary at this church, so that helped us make connections really fast too. We went to prayer meetings, met the interim pastor, met with mission committee members, missionaries and made some new friends. It was a blessing to be here these weeks.

We have been able to park on the church’s property and have full hook ups, which is a real blessing. We then relocated to another town in Arizona where we plan to help and encourage the body of Christ as well! Kent is continuing to work with candidates too.

HEALTH UPDATE

For some months now I(Jan) have not felt well, I was absolutely exhausted even as we traveled many days this summer. Once we got back to Arizona, I went back to my dr and he told me my thyroid was only functioning at half and my endocrine system as well. He put me on medicine for the thyroid and supplements for the other. I still had so little energy!

I thought I was starting to get better, but one afternoon about a week after our trip to the Northwest.. I started having chest pains.. and it got so bad that we went to the Emergency room for the first time! As soon as they attached the leads to my heart for the EKG and I could hear the heart rate, I knew I wasn’t having a heart attack at that moment, but perhaps I had before. They did blood tests and a chest X-ray in case the pain was pneumonia, but none of that showed anything. It didn’t seem to be a panic attack which also can feel that way. So they gave me some mylanta and we went home.

Since I had a cardiologist appointment 2 days later, we decided to wait until then. The cardiologist saw me and sent me for some tests all that came back good. He suggested along with my regular dr that it had been a gall bladder attack! Soo we were grateful for the heart checks and glad it wasn’t that.

And then I had to have another blood test checking for cancer cells.. which I have done since my cancer surgery 20 months ago. These tests have been good all along but we want to keep a watch and this time they were a bit higher but still in the safe guidelines. Please pray that God will give me back my strength and health!

After all of this, I am ready to meet spring with a renewed spirit and hopefully renewed health too. We are so grateful for your prayers for us and for safety in travel and for continued strength for the ministry God has before us!

Jan for the Roaming Reimers
