Many thanks again to the readers who encouraged me and prayed for me during the time when health issues kept me from answering questions on this blog. I am very grateful that God has now restored sufficient health and strength for me to start answering questions again. I will begin with the backlog of nearly 70 questions that came in during the year and a half when I was unable to respond to them. This will take some time, and I may have to work slowly at first. But I am very hopeful that eventually I will get back to the place where I am answering questions as they come in. Thanks again very much for your support and patience, and thanks be to God!
I am very grateful for the words of encouragement and support I have received since publishing this post. Many thanks again to everyone who was praying for me!
