Dear Friends,

Here is another update on Catherine
Appointments and Tests
Catherine Webster On Monday, we drove Catherine to Montréal for her appointment with Dr. Frederick Andermann of the Montréal Neurological Institute and Hospital.  This was a very encouraging consultation, and resulted in an appointment on Tuesday with Dr. Eva Andermann, a neurologist who specializes in the genetic aspects of epilepsy.  What then followed were a number of tests, including DNA and EEGs for both Catherine and Melanie.  Most of you know that Melanie has lived with epileptic type seizures since childhood and our daughter Valerie has also had a similar problem.  This clear familial link has opened the door for a further diagnosis of Melanie's case and should help both with Catherine and Valerie as well.  Yesterday, they decided to admit Catherine into the hospital in order to undergo a battery of more tests into next week.  One thing they now want is for her to actually have a seizure in a controlled environment in order to analyze the data.
God's Provision
It has now been well over two weeks since Melanie and Stephanie drove down to Greenville, SC to get Catherine at BJU.  After their arrival back home here in Québec City late on Saturday night, Melanie and Catherine only had two nights at home before we had to drive to Montreal on Monday morning.  This has all come at a time that has also been particularly stressful for us in the ministry here.  Yet God has supplied all of our needs.  The expenses for the trip to South Carolina were entirely covered by several gifts including a special love offering from our sending church, Concord Bible Church.  Both lodging and transportation for Melanie and Catherine's extended stay in Montréal have been provided through our dear friends, the Godins.  Pierre Godin is a former member of the church in Sept-Îles.   Next week is Spring Break on Québec college campuses, so Melanie will not have to miss her class again at Laval University.  Also, several of the ministry related situations have "unblocked" (as we say in French).  God answers prayer and He provides for His own!
We are so thankful for all of you who have given and prayed for us so far through this ordeal.  Your e-mails and phone calls have been overwhelmingly encouraging.  Please forgive us for not responding to them all individually.
In Christ,

"To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily." (Colossians 1:27-29 AV)
