Day 8 COGY Trial

Yesterday I felt sick in the afternoon, so I made arrangements and went to bed. I didn’t use COGY yesterday.

After a sleep I cheered up. I talked to my Catholic neighbor for an hour after he got me the hose so I could water my garden.

In the morning, I got up, dressed, had breakfast, made the bed, joined prayer group, and went for a walk with two amazing caregivers who have also learnt the art of catching the worm.

At 9am one of the ladies came back to prepare me a salad.

After another walk I went to work with a lady who works for Ironside. She is a superstar. That is the best word I can think of to describe her. She is the answer to so many prayers, that lady.

While at work, I thought with anticipation, after work I am going to use COGY. It rained a bit while I was at work. But it stopped after work!! So my helper and I didn’t worry about getting wet while going for an evening walk/ bike in the cool breeze.

Getting into COGY was -thankfully- straight forward. The transfer landed me right in the COGY seat. I transferred in shoes. I wore a splint on my left leg, because that ankle doesn’t rub badly like my right one in the splints. To hold my right ankle in a bent position and prevent it paining (when straight), we used a configuration invented by Koko for this purpose. I think next time I should use a smaller shoe on my right foot that fits my foot better.

We had a refreshing trip outside, down the carpark and half way around A block, and back. I biked up most of the carpark which is a hill to get back inside.

Before my helper came, after work, I determined to take myself out to find someone to share the Gospel with. I got ready, had some water, and left, knowing it was the right thing to do even if it felt like I could make better use of the time. About that time, I actually got convicted by the verse where Apostle Paul says, “Woe is me, if I do not preach the Gospel.”

As I went, I prayed that God would lead me to some people who were open, who really wanted to hear the Gospel. I had to ask, seek and knock. Drove up to some people who were discussing the building of a shed. The agent decided to hop in his car and move it for me although I pionted out I could just go the other way. I asked the couple the question I was out asking everyone. If they died tonight and God asked why they should go to Heaven… The lady took a card but rejected Christianity, and she wished me well on my afternoon journey and made sure I could get through the gap to keep going where I had been headed. I am fully convinced that that was a God thing, because from the other side of that gap, I could see a couple with their groceries, not doing anything in particular, sitting on a low wall. T and J listened, gladly received a Bible and Gospel booklet.

Please pray for them to gladly receive the implanted word which is able to save their souls, and to seek and find Jesus.

    I’m glad you felt better after an afternoon sleep. I also love the way you enjoy the later afternoon on COGY. Season slowly changes. Enjoy the every bits- wind, sky, temperature.
