Dear Friends and those who pray with the Christian Mission. I have a new prayer request for us to work on. I started visiting schools again now that the school year is started. At one of the schools I was introduced to an incoming 7th grade girl by the principal of the school.
Her father was involved in an accident not long ago. He fell out of a tree while trying to gather honey to sell to help suport his family. As a result of the fall, he has suffered major brain damage.
I don’t have the complete story yet; but what I have so far is this: His treatment requires a year long stay in a hospital about 70 or so miles away from his home. Once in the hospital, all medical care is covered at no cost to him; however, he also has to have a care giver go with him. Costs for this person for food and lodging is not covered, and with him in the hospital there is no provider at home. Because of all of this the mother is also having problems coping with the situation. The daughter is worried that her mother will have further problems.
The Thai Lao Cambodia Brotherhood has picked up funding for the girl to attend high school. the prayer from here is that God will provide funding of from $75.00-%100.00 for the next 12 months to provide a care-giver to accompany the girl’s father and to help a little in the household.
Prior to taking any action I will be meeting with the principal again and Maeo and I will be making a home visit to talk with those involved.
We are again praying for a miracle and God continues to bless us here with those.
Thank you for your prayers and God Bless. John and Maeo.
