Diagnosis Migrane

...and by His wounds we are healed.
Isa 53:5

This list is meant for glorifying God and sharing about His awesome deeds, particularly in, through and around me. Today, however, I want to inform you that I finally know what's wrong with me.

Working 70-hour weeks for 3 months meant having to pay a price, it seems. One week before leaving Austria I had, what I called, a 'near-breakdown' on the street. With that my physical well-being changed. I was much weaker and tired. On my first day in the US, something similar happened. I ended up in bed, not being able to do anything for over 5 hours and feeling terrible. I contributed it to my exhaustion and the stress. The following week I had two afternoons like that, the week after again, and today again. However, today was the lightest so far. I admit, I wondered whether I could simply contribute it to my exhaustion and hope it would get better, not really knowing what was going on.
Today it started on my way to the dining hall. Luckily, I sat with a person who's had this half her life and so I found out what it was: migrane. I have to admit I was pretty shocked to find out because I wouldn't have expected that at all. I guess I should consider consulting a doctor as long as I still have an insurance (while in North Dakota).

Praise God that He died for our healing! I trust that the Lord will heal me in His time.

I've now been here in Grand Forks for just over two weeks. I'm thankful for Gabriela, my friend whose room is just opposite mine. She's from Argentina, also attending an Assembly of God church. I've also made a few other good friends. On Sundays, we're three regular people attending a small Assembly of God church here, and I'm thankful for that.
I'm now only doing the Prosody Workshop (6 credits), working on my data from Mali again and trying to find out more. It's exciting to learn so much more and get tools that enable you to be more effective.
During the last few days God has stirred my heart again concerning missions, Mali, Wycliffe, and I'm really thankful for that. It's wonderful being with people from so many nations who are called to so many nations. There are about 90 people here.

Please pray for:

* Physical healing from the migrane.
* Strength and effectivity for my linguistic studies.
* Financial provision.

And finally - I'd love to hear from you. Austrians, just because I'm in the US now doesn't mean it's harder to write me an e-mail ;-)

Love in HIM,
