Update to this post – 20 April ’11 – Premalatha will definitely be having the heart operation – on or about 20th May. The cost will be 270,000 rupees or about NZ$7,700 – impossible for Peter and his family. But God has already answered our prayers – Immanuel has family and friends working in the hospital and they have sourced a 150,000 rupees contribution from an insurance system run by the Tamil Nadu government. Thank the Lord for this wonderful provision. The Mission has a small relief fund and will assist Peter and Premalatha from it as best we can, but there is still a considerable shortfall – please ask the Lord to meet this urgent need.
