FAMILY FOR THE SOLITARY

My Home in Yantai

Apart from heart disease, I was also diagnosed with arteriosclerosis in the brain coupled with severe damage to the nervous system (Parkinson*s disease). I required treatment accordingly and therefore left for Yantai in June 1982. Doctor Shun Wu, a neurologist at the Yantai Community Hospital, and his wife, sister Guilin Li, have been receiving me with hospitality up to this moment (2002)1 .

Lord, You are my God! When I walked through mountains, gorges and plains, you have always carried me through. From my youth to maturity, you have not deserted me. You have led me through all the way. You deserve my worship and praises!

Nevertheless, I know who holds tomorrow, and I truly believe the Lord is leading me all the way, just as worded in the following hymn:

All the way my Savior leads me;
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who thro* life has been my guide?
Heav*nly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell;
For I know, whate*er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.
All the way my Savior leads me,
Cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for every trial,
Feeds me with the living bread;
Though my weary steps may falter,
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo, a spring of joy I see!
All the way my Savior leads me,
Oh, the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father*s house above.
When my spirit clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song through endless ages;
Jesus led me all the way!
- Fanny Crosby

## raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:6, 7)

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  (Philippians 3:13-14)

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. (II Timothy 4: 7,8)
