Missionary Update: Anita Stanton

Hello Once Again.

I haven’t written since I had surgery because it was hard to use the computer. I am so thankful to say that the surgery went well with the removal of both tumors. I have been doing well at home for two weeks now and have gained good use of the left arm and am seeing much improvement in the right arm.

I just got home from seeing the doctor and having the drains removed. It is sooooooo good to move around without the drains! He says the incisions are healing well and doesn’t anticipate any problems with the rest of the recuperation period. I do not have to see the surgeon again until December as long as there is no problem.

I have an appointment for Sept. 24 to do the simulation for radiation. At that time, they will do a CAT scan of the area to be treated and do all the pre-preparation to begin treatment. I will begin radiation about the end of September and hopefully finish the first week of November.

I want to express my thanks to each of you for your prayers and support through these months of treatment. There is still treatment ahead, but I am beginning to feel that the worse is over. I am most thankful to God for His love and care over me during this time.
Love to all,
Anita

I missed being with you all yesterday.  Believe me, I would have much rather been in church than sitting in the 100-degree Papa John’s Oven as we have affectionately nicknamed it!  I am looking forward to teaching your kids on Wednesday night.  Esther is one of my favorite stories!  I encourage you to read through the story with them before Wednesday so I can be blown away by how much they already know!  :o) 

Hope you are having a nice Labor Day!

Praise the Lord I survived all three weeks of band camp!  Yay!  I only have one more year of band camp left…that’s a crazy feeling after doing it for 8 years!  :o)  I start school on Wednesday.  This is my lightest class load so far.  I went to the doctor this morning and everything is still fine there!  I meet with the diabetes nurse tomorrow at 1:00, so that should be interesting!

Enough about my life…I really enjoyed yesterday’s services.  I thought Steve Ludwig did an excellent job both presenting his ministry and bringing a convicting message.  It was really nice to meet him, Misty, Bryson, and Branson!  Learn more about Rock of Ages Prison Ministries at their website (but don’t be frightened by the 3-D man as I was!  haha!).

Some Interesting Links for You this Week:

  • An article about how brutal the Olympics have been for Chinese Christians.
  • Meet John Piper’s new grandson, Morrow.  This is a beautiful story of God’s grace manifested in the life of his son and daughter-in-law, Molly and Abraham.  Their second child, daughter Felicity, was stillborn last year.  [Also interesting is how they name their kids…check this out!]
  • A great quote.
  • In honor of Caleb’s birthday, read a neat post by Daniel that reminds us to keep our focus!

For the Glory of God
