Short Term Mission Trips

Unplanned Mission Trip

The day started just like any other, got up ate breakfast, packed the Suburban for a 3-nite stay in Kalispell MT. due to weather. In that 3-nite stay I would have two days of Kidney Dialysis and 1 day of rest, so that we could come home during daylight hours on Sunday.

After my 85 mile drive to Kalispell dialysis started out as normal as normal can be. I had been there for about 3 of my 4-hour treatment when I asked a nurse to come and evaluate me because I thought something might be wrong. I was right. They did my vitals and they were off the charts. Blood Pressure 225/113, Pulse 140. The doc was called and he administered some Nitroglycerin, in hope to get my heart to pop back into sinus rhythm from A- fib. No such luck!

After a bit I was transferred to the ER@ Kalispell Regional Medical Center. I wish I could say this was my first trip but it is not. Some of the staff even call me by my nickname Chappy even without looking at the charts. I was their guest from about 5 pm until midnight. In which time they administered more Nitro. When it was all said and done I had been given 6 rounds of Nitro and they had gotten my blood pressure done to 135 over 56 and my pulse rate back down to 70.

I was admitted to the hospital so they could monitor me and make sure that I did not go back into A-fib. By the time my heart doctor arrived in the morning the Lord had brought a few people into my life that needed to have some questions answered about God and Jesus. I was happy to obliged.

On the morning of the 12 of January 2018 I saw two doctors who could not figure out why I went into A-fib and then popped out. It was like a switch was turned on then off. I told them that the Lord needed to talk to someone and used me to do it. They didn’t argue, they just told me to go home because some of need might need the bed I was using.

In summation, those of use who are born again have learned that we need to be available when God calls. We never know when or why but just to be available.
