Dear folks, I thought it was the end of the pilgrim path Sun. night. My metabolism seemed barely alive. Much pain. We felt compelled to go to the ER. The blood was poor. They did an IV for about 40 minutes, and they sent me home, estimating that I had 1 or 2 days to live. I think they gave me what was for me an overdose of pain killer and it caused nausea, dizziness, flashes, and I’d say it affected my liver function, as, since then I’ve had extreme weakness. I can hardly walk. My legs hurt. There is slight improvement today. I have an extremely sensitive bowel, and am eating rice, bread, and bananas only. Hospice has started coming. All the family is here. God is good. God is. We march onward to the prize before us — the Lord Jesus Himself. My love, Bob

Make sure right now that you enter the right gate – the narrow gate, not the wide gate of false profession: Matthew 7:13,14 Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
