As God's mercy and prayers of co-workers I began gradually to recover from my sickness, I felt very thankful and joyful for new life. But I was sick again, went rushed to the emergency room twice during a visit in Korea I felt deeply despair again. Not just physically sick but also mentally suffer a panic disorder, and devastated spiritually. I would not be better and I could not sleep even bunch of medicines, and had lost a smile. It was difficult for me to hold even one day. I was weak, But God is faithful, always faithful. Every moment of crisis which it likes like no way to go, God open a way. In my hardest times, God sent my family from Norway, God sent shepherd and co worker in ubf for prayer and bible study. Because of panic disorder, I had difficult to go out from house, but with depend on Matthews Gospel Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, I could have courage and move to mission center in KyungSeong ubf. I could get gamma knife surgeon in hospital with Johns Gospel 11:4 God “This sickness will not end in death No it is God’s glory” In surrounded with prayer and God’s word, I released from power of death. And finally I could come back to the land which God given to us, my mission field, and my lovely home in Norway. I am still very weak and I am still fighting anxiety in everyday.

In every small things, I need His mercy and grace. So I became more depend to my heavenly father, more thankful, and rejoice in small things.
