The chroNICHOLLS of Tanzania


Not long after we first in Tanzania, back in 2007, I a pretty personal song described how I’d been feeling for a There’s a part of the song goes, “If I’m wrong tell me hear my cry when I’m down, me up, your love is better life; but why is your voice, so clear, so quiet now, not that I don#8217;t listen, I don#8217;t hear.”  I had had years of ministry and walking with God and close to him, and then it like God went quiet and

I didn’t stop believing; I stopped hearing. It was probably in the following months that and I, unbeknownst to us, contracted brucellosis, a carried by animals and passed to usually through unpasteurized or meat.

Over the last few years seen our health gradually I’ve especially had strong such as arthritic join and chronic sciatic back fatigue and overheating, among other things, but we didn’t why. Around May last we were definitely at our lowest

There was a time when I to Kelly, “I think I’m …. I’m not I’ll make it past

A couple months later we doing routine health in Nairobi and decided to check for and both our tests came positive. At the time we didn’t much about the disease, but as we more we realised that could be what’s responsible for our health.  So we started treatment.

After treating it twice, successfully got rid of it, but I still had it. I went a third and much more treatment in March this that, according to the microbiologist in had never failed to eradicate About a month after treatment I went back to to get re-tested.

Because of a number of things going on, we had decided if I was still positive then leave Tanzania and head to Australia for at least 6 months to treatment. It wasn’t good to be leaving the field – our translation was going through big changes and I was to take over the role of head in October, plus we had our branch conference coming up, and I was involved in that too, but we to put out a ‘fleece’ and see where God wanted us.

Amazingly the results were I was all clear.

In June, after the we decided to get further tests while we were still in This time I was positive to As depressing as a positive diagnosis is, it was to know that we’d out God’s will and felt he clearly wanted us to stay in And so I treated, yet again.

Treatment takes about 6 and for the second half of treatment and a month following the medicines you feel miserable, sick, and very overheated.

That in August, and since then been waiting for an opportunity to get my tested again. That came on the weekend because a was leaving Musoma for furlough, and was to take my blood sample to to get tested.

Last Friday I was in bed, listening to music, and about getting re-tested for I was thinking about what I’d do if the came back positive yet and saying to God, “Will it end? I don’t think I can do again.” I asked God what was to happen, and my consciousness switched to the song that was playing and I the words, “For the joy set before me, I endure.” I had one of those moments I realised that God was talking to me, and I “So this is it? This is your for me?” While still on this the next song on and I heard, “Hold on, don’t hope, ‘cause the better are before you now.”

I got the results back today and positive. It was hard news to But I’m finding comfort in the fact God prepared me for it, and that I’m right he wants me to be. And that makes it easier to deal with. A reminded me yesterday of C.S.

Lewis’ quote that whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our but shouts in our pains.” I still know what God is ultimately to me through all of this, but if this is my to endure, then it’s a one compared to what Jesus and the end result is ‘joy’. For us who have in our Creator, the better days are us, and that’s where I’m headed.
