To all you who were praying for me, I would like to thank you; the Lord is gradually answering your prayers. I can sing a bit now. I had not gone back to the doctor for checkup since January, since the only option was surgery. But it seems, it is no longer necessary!
I just finished preaching in a missions youth camp tonight, and I spoke for 2 hours and 10 minutes (8:00 - 10:10 pm). The Lord broke me in tears while browsing the site on Madagascar that Bible Senders posted, and the church where I spoke had the 10/40 window drawn on the stage. I believe God is giving me back my voice to preach in the regions beyond. Let me share an outline of my message tonight:
"FOR THIS CAUSE" (1 Tim. 1:12-17)
1. God enabled me.
2. God counted me faithful.
3. God put me into the ministry.
FOR THIS CAUSE:
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners

Hi, Renee! THANK YOU FOR PRAYING. I know you are one of the many out there who pray for me.

I just couldn't believe it! Vocal fold polyps don't just go away. The "S.O.P." according to throat specialist is to have it removed by surgery. My aunt and grandma recommended that I buy a certain kind of juice (which costs about $60, very expensive for me! $60 is the same cost for a laryngoscopy). So I preferred to buy it, although that keeps me "poor". I believe God used it in some way to help the recovery of my voice without surgery.

Last night, I sang again for the first time with our Bible during our Missions Night! I sang:

God wants to hear you sing, when the waves are crashing round you, when the fiery darts surround you, and despair is all you see. God wants to hear your voice when the wisest man has spoken and says your circumstance is as hopeless as can be; that's when God wants to hear you sing.

I still take a lot of voice rest periods and avoid loud talking. I can't use my voice as much as I wanted to, as was before. I know I still got the polyp inside my throat. But whether it's still there is is gradually going away, it doesn't matter anymore. The Lord has heard all your prayers. My voice is coming back - God wants me to PREACH, TEACH, and SING!

Hi Biblestudent, Glad to hear your throat is better, will be praying for you bro. I know what it is like to have probs. with your throat and voice when preaching. I was advised to use apple cider vinegar as a gargle, tastes yuck but does the trick.

Main thing is keep your throat and vocal cords lubricated, I noted on one of your posts you said when you were quieter you got more folks, reminded me of something I was told when I first started Street Preaching, 'If they can hear you a mile away, they will stay a mile away'

It's a matter of balance I know, but does mean you can get up close and personal with folks..

Take care brother and every blessing..

Thank you my brother,

I hope you do not mind that I address you as above, which is the way I address my flesh and blood brother. You are indeed my brother in Christ, my blood bought brother.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Thank Our God that He hears our prayers. Many a time in our life (mine and George) with each other and seven children, we have said,"But for the grace of God.)

God is always reliable and will do for us as He wills. Our problem is we are not always in His will.

God bless and keep you,
Renee

Thanks, for calling me "brother"!
(However, I am not personally so used to addressing others as "sister" due to the influence of Roman Catholic nuns in here.)
Although I do not use the term so often, I am so glad that you are a SISTER in the Lord indeed to me! You're prayers have been heard by our loving God.

chaplainles,
I remembered that time (when we preached at a cemetery in November 1) that I was not able to bring enough water, and I preached with really dry throat. Thanks for the reminder!

Biblestudent:
Are you able to accept PayPal payments? I would like to help out with your needs for the juice. Perhaps others will do the same?

Post your PayPal address here if you can.

Thank you for your desire to help with my needs. However, I don't think I have a paypal address. (I tried to have one before when I wanted to buy a booklet, but I didn't have credit card, and paypal seems to require it.)
