Marvin, one of the four boys which is in our home has been in our home since December, has been sick for a couple of months. After several rounds of antibiotics and other treatments, we took him to a private clinic this week for blood test. He test were positive for TB, Malaria, and . We will take him for another HIV test for confirmation. If it is positive, we will place him in a HIV program which will give him the help which he needs. He is nine years old. Please pray for him as we walk through this and get the care which he needs.
This week , as we were making plans to take Herode (he is the one which is 18 months and 9 lbs.) to Dorothy's for extended care, we went to Jubilee to talk with the mother. While we were there at his mothers house, another lady came up with a baby which was born on March 17th of this year. The mother died after the baby was three days old from anemia. The grandmother had taken the baby and tried to care for it. Now she had recognized the baby was dying and was wanting to give it up. It appeared to be near death, and we took it home and began giving him liquids. He did not have a name and Mary named him Aron. We were concerned he may not live through the night. We praised God that He allowed him to live through the night. Dorothy said she would be willing to take him for a while, so we took him and Herode to Pot-au-Prince with us . , we took him to a clinic in PAP to get an x-ray of his skull. The doctor confirmed that he has which is a fusion of the skull which will not allow expansion of the skull which will in turn not allow the brain to grow. It is believed that he will not live long and he will have seizures and pain. This has broken our hearts. In most cases you just love and comfort until the end. We are here to give these people hope and I am in a place where many have given up and I am praying God will intervene and change his death to life. Please join us in prayer as we pray for Aron
The rains this past week has magnified problems in Jubilee. We wanted to start building a feeding shelter on the property, but due to rains, we were not able to. It has been an awesome week to go back have the people there wanting us to continue feeding the children. There is also a burden for those who continue to try to stand in the way of what we are trying to do in order to get personal gain. Please continue to pray that God will show us His way clearly and we will follow his path closely.
