[Our daughter] Lydia (5 years-old) has been taken by air medivac from Bujurumba and is now stable in a hospital ICU in Nairobi, Kenya. She is heavily sedated. A few test results have come back which are confirming that we are dealing primarily with cerebral malaria and its effects. Please pray for us as we walk through this. We are so thankful that we made the decision to medical evacuate when we did as she has definitely been depending on the good ICU care she is receiving here in Nairobi. Thanks for praying for us! It is really hard to see Lydia so sick, but we know God has a purpose in letting us walk through this and we are trusting Him for a full recovery for Lydia.
