We have been in the States for over 2 months now. It has been a lot of work with our transition, but we are finally settled in a rental in Bexley, Ohio. The boys started school in August and we have been so pleasantly surprised how they have transitioned. The school system is really good, so that helps.
The last that most of you had heard from us, we were in a bit of a health crisis while we were leaving Tanzania for our year- long furlough. So much has happened that I wouldn’t be able to fill these pages in a concise manner to share it, but the gist of it is this; Jamie came down with typhoid and amebic dysentery. It’s been a very trying time for our family as Jamie’s life really hung in the balance.
As of now, Jamie’s health has been deteriorating slowly. She has not regained health since her return, in fact she has gotten worse. We are seeing a Dr. that is now testing her for parasitic infections and will hopefully be able to start her on a regimen that can begin to help her recover. Most likely, before that treatment can happen, she will need to have IV Nutritional Therapy in order to strengthen her weak body. The Dr. estimates at least 4 months to get to a better place, but she should be seeing improvements with the first month. We pray!
We are praying for God’s wisdom and guidance in all of this.
Please join us in prayer as we continue down this road of finding healing.
Please keep our whole family in your prayers. For those of you who have asked how you can help, here are some practical ways: making a meal for our family (you can contact Becky Slagle @ 614.404.6184), picking up groceries, gift cards to grocery stores, coming over to pray and say hi. J Please feel free to reach out to us anytime.
Thank you for your faithful financial support. We are relying on your faithfulness as we adjust to all of this and make our way back to health.
We will keep you up to date as we know more.
We are confident that God is with us, that He has not left us and in fact, His love is more evident than ever through this very hard time of trial.
May you feel His love with you and your families.
Love, The Dellesky Clan
