Hello my Friends,
I have been reading your e-mails and receiving such comfort from
them daily. Thank you for your continued prayers on my behalf. You
cannot know how much that means to me. I think about you often and
try to picture your faces.
I want to say thank you for all the wonderful gifts you have sent
me. Angels, shawls (which I love because I feel cold so much of the
time having lost so much weight). Iím staying at a firm 95 lbs. But,
that is not so bad considering Iím just 4í-11Ē tall. I just look
kinda boney. Ha!Ha! I love all the butterflies youíve sent and all
the good vitamins, the drinks, all the cancer information, the
books. Everything brings a feeling of love with it. Thank you from
the bottom of my heart.
I am still on chemo. I take a chemo pill for a week then Iím off a
week. Just about the time I start feeling better and my energy is
coming back itís time to take that pill again. I start again
tomorrow. However, I received a great report from the doctor two
weeks ago. My cancer marker has gone from 48 to 40. I am grateful to
God for good news. But, I KNOW I serve a 100% God and 40 isnít good
enough for Him. I KNOW that one day I will be sitting here at my
desk writing that God has done it again and Iím 100% free of cancer.
Meanwhile, I keep taking my medicine and I keep praising God for
total restoration of my health. I feel I have so much to do yet.
You ask if I am hurting. Yes, sometimes my back aches so bad that I
can hardly breathe. But I get out and do and go anyway. I donít know
if any of you have seen my new television show or not. Itís called
"YOU CAN MAKE IT". Itís really funny. Itís a cooking show and I do
it with my girlfriend of 30 years, Joanne Thompson. She and her
husband Jimmy Thompson own a television station in Greenville, SC
and also in Atlanta, GA. Weíve had on some wonderful guests and we
tape once a month 3 one half hour shows a day. That is so good for
me because for those two days I feel like I donít have cancer and
that I am contributing something to the world again. Itís funny
because in between shows youíll find me cuddled up in the green room
wrapped up in my shawl with a heating pad on my back. But that is
what faith is all about. Taking one day at a time. Defying the old
devil and doing it anyway. Seeing things that are not as though they
were! Thatís faith in a nutshell! That is what I try to do everyday.
Please pray for my son Jay Bakker. He is moving his ministry
ďRevolutionĒ to New York. Itís a big step of faith for him and his
wife Amanda. She is studying to be a doctor at one of the colleges
there. If you would like to HEAR Jayís ministry he has an online
church for people who have given up on church. Listen at
www.VivaLaRevolution.org. You will enjoy his look at
life. Thank you again for everything. I love you so much!
