Medical issues

This year has started with a couple of medical issues for our family. Firstly, Tim had a hernia operation last month, and then last week our eldest son David broke both bones in his lower right leg in an open fracture. We are very thankful though to have the mission hospital here at Loloma, especially the qualified staff and capable doctors. Both for Tim’s hernia and also David’s fracture, they were taken care of by the senior doctor in the new operating theatre that was completed last year. Tim is already getting back to normal, and we trust that David will also be back to his normal energetic life after a few months. Please pray that there will be no infection due to the open fracture, and that the bones will heal well. He is being pumped with many antibiotics, so we trust they will do their work.
