Her Prayer Request Became a Praise

Recently, during missionary fellowship, I asked all the children to share just one prayer request. Elizabeth seemed to be carefully weighing her options, then chose, “That Daniel will get to go home soon.”

“Good news!” I said, “Daniel went home today, your prayer was answered and now it’s a praise.” Elizabeth, Lydia, and Ruth were delighted.

Praise be to God, Daniel was able to advance his diet to solid foods, and keep everything down and working. For several days of post-op observation.

His family’s bill for their prolonged stay, TPN, surgery, and meds, (about 3,000 USD) was largely taken care of by your many generous donations. Thank you all for your help.

Please continue to pray that Daniel is able to keep gaining weight, and avoid future bowel problems.

Also be in prayer for Axel who is 3 years old and Maritzah who is 2 years old. They both have nephrotic syndrome, which is a kidney problem that crops up in some kids for no clear reason. Almost every time this type of problem responds to simple steroid treatments. But when it doesn’t, as in both of their cases, things become significantly more grim.

For Axel, pray that the new medication that we’re going to try will help put him in remission. For Maritza, pray for a miracle, that God might heal her kidneys, and barring that, that he would shower his love and grace upon her and her family- transcending their suffering.

Grace and Peace,

Dr. Nathan
