Just wondering today why the world is in such a mess???? Everywhere we turn, people get hurt, or when you look at the news its flooded with death and destruction of mankind. Around us the missionaries are getting hurt as well as good friends are not spared. All we can do is pray and ask God to intervene. Tonight, I come to you with a heavy heart.
We are asking prayer for McKenzie. We met her when she was just a wee little girl, in the Philippines. I included the updates as I got them:
I ask all my friends who are PRAYER WARRIORS to pray for this beautiful 18 year old. My friends, Mike Capka and Kim Van Dell Capka's daughter had a stroke yesterday. Please pray specifically for her brain surgery today (to relieve pressure) and for the doctors to have wisdom in how they treat her before, during, and after the surgery. Please pray for the family to see God's hand in everything and for them to experience the strength and peace that only the Lord Jesus Christ can provide. I can't begin to imagine everything they are going through, but God knows and loves them all. Her name is McKenzie Capka and I know her whole family would appreciate your prayers. Thanks all! Please comment where you were when you prayed so the family can see a map of everywhere their prayer warriors are!
We also want to continued prayers for Jonathan Smedley and his family. You remember that they had a very bad accident a while ago, up North in Ratanakiri. Currently they are in Thailand. Here's an update:
We have been trying to decide what to do for my wife, Kristen's hands. It sounds like she will get the cast off and pins out in a couple of weeks. She has a knuckle on her middle finger that either needs an artificial joint or the bones fused. We haven't quite decided what to do. The surgeon here in Chiang Mai doesn't think there is enough soft tissue to support an artificial joint.
Toinette is still struggling with swollen limfnodes and ear infections. How long this still need to continue. I put her on another batch of antibiotics as the first one did not work. Pray that she will get healed as she is not feeling good. At least its not all bad news. My therapist is very pleased with my leg, better he pleased than me, I have all the pain. Like they say:""If Physio does not hurt , its not Physio.""
Please pray for our trip into the bush, on Friday and Saturday. Taking Willem for some medical/Dental in the bush.
Do not get discourage because of all these things happening in the world today. God is still in control. Good things are happening and people still hear the Gospel. Lets go full blast and do not stop, till He comes again.
Love you allRossouw-clan
