Rev. David Robertson Update

April 21, 2017
Many will be interested and concerned about the progress of Rev David Robertson since yesterday.  We are delighted that the procedure of insertion of the drain was successful.  The procedure went well and the new antibiotics seem to be working.
 
David’s condition has significantly improved.  Please pray for wisdom regarding the next stage.
 
The family continue to be profoundly grateful for all the support shown to them in recent days.
 
Whilst David has been characteristically open about his hospitalisation we trust that over the next few weeks he will be given the time, space and privacy to recover.
 
Friends will be interested to know that David is working through the 16 volumes of The Works of John Owen during his recovery period.  It was Owen who wrote, 'Did you never run for shelter in a storm, and find fruit which you expected not? Did you never go to God for safeguard, driven by outward storms, and there find unexpected fruit?’  May that be true for all of us who suffer.
