Though he is doing a bit better, Rannie’s battle with illness continues. As he noted in an email informing people of his illness,

Christ is with us in good times and bad, including times of good health and bad. Let us trust our mighty God to move into, not around our troubles, and let him show us once again his mighty, awesome power!
