I'm not good at recovery
Maybe this photo is TMI (too much information), but a few have asked about how I am healing up.
The sting ray "sting" was more like a knife slicing and stabbing me. I have been trying to rest and keep my foot elevated, but we have SO MUCH to do to get ready for the opening of our school (www.UvitaChristianAcaedmy.org) that it is difficult for me to sit idle...
The prayers that have gone out for me from literally all over the world are so appreciated.
Through this whole ordeal The Lord has been speaking to me to "HOLD FAST." Not to give in to frustration, fear or depression. He did not cause this to happen, but I am ever confident that He is going to use it for our good.
The privilege of sharing Jesus with the people in this godless community is a big deal...the enemy does not like that we are here accomplishing so much by the grace of God, but he is the loser! We have the victory and will continue to press through.
Thanks for your love and support! Be sure to email us and let us know what is going on in your world and how we can pray for you!

Scott - perhaps you can find someone with Lavender Essential oil - it should help the swellling go down and the bruising to go away at the same time. Whatever quality you can find - put it on as much as you can. You will smell good too :) Another oil is Melaleuca/Tea Tree Oil as it will help the bacteria from not staying inside you. It is antiseptic in nature.
