Upcoming Sporadic Blogging

leave a comment »

Dear Readers,

My brother Ian has terminal cancer. He has had cancer for about a year and a half. A week ago, as the chemo hasn’t been as effective as we’d have liked, and the cancer is a very rare and stubborn sort, Ian decided to cease doing chemo and let God’s will be done, be that falling asleep or a miraculous healing.

I don’t know how long Ian has to live on earth–whether it is a few weeks, or a few months. Given the uncertainty, and because it is soon Chinese New Year, which is a chance for the whole family to be together (my parents and brothers live in Taiwan, I’m in Canada, and my sister is currently in Singapore), I am planning on returning home next week. I plan to be there until June, or later, if Ian lives that long.

This means that blogging will likely be sporadic over the next weeks and months.

I would also ask your prayers for my brother Ian, myself, my parents David and Ruth, and my other siblings Sarah, Peter, and John.

Thank you.
