“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

Thank you for your recent prayers for us here in South Sudan. Today things did not turn out the way we thought they would. Sadly young Anoch, the 12 year old amputee, died following her surgery. She was severely anemic and needed a blood transfusion before she could be operated on. Our Community Health Worker reported the Wau hospital did a blood transfusion on arrival, so we are not sure what went wrong exactly. We have many unanswered questions for those at the hospital but we have chosen not to pursue this any further. Her father came to us this morning requesting our ambulance to carry Anoch’s body back to Tonj. We are all so sad for this family. Sabet was able to pray with Anoch and she acknowledged she had understood his invitation to receive Jesus as Savior. Please pray for her family especially the grandfather that shot her accidently. When unexpected events unfold you realize how fragile life really is and how quickly our lives can change forever. Our hope is in Him, HE is our ROCK and our ANCHOR. Pray for Sabet and I as we continue to minister the love of Jesus to this family.

In His Love,

Suzy (for Sabet too)
