Dear brothers and sisters, I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and last Tuesday I had a iodine tablet treatment at Poitiers hospital. I mustn’t be near children or pregnant women for two weeks ( as there are radioactive elements) so I will not be teaching. I put my trust in the Lord who will keep me safe under his wings.
Please pray that the treatment is successful. Though this comes a bit as a shock, someone reminded me of this passage in 1 Peter 1: It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it—and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold; so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honour on the day of his return.
God bless you richly! Nicky
