Miracle Children by Dr. Jono Macleod

Here’s the story of Nhom-Rom, a small child who made a miraculous recovery while we were at devotions…

One of the things that keeps us going here on the tough days is the miracle children that God sends our way. Three year old Nhom-Rom was in a critical condition in our ward after spending the night convulsing at home from Cerebral Malaria.

I was heading out the gate for an early morning jog when I saw two desperate looking ladies running towards me holding a limp twitching child, which they all but thrust into my arms. The child had been convulsing most of the night, but they owned no torch or light (imagine!) so had to wait until morning to be able to see the path into town. So I turned and ran with the ladies into the clinic where we injected the child with a variety of medicines to treat infection and stop the seizures, tested for malaria (positive of course), and prayed for God to spare this precious life. Now you can probably guess that children who have been continuously convulsing for several hours from a brain infection have a poor prognosis even in the US, let alone in our low-tech clinic in the middle of South Sudan. If they recover it is usually days before they are sitting up eating again. Well half an hour later the child finally stopped convulsing but was still totally unresponsive, so we left the drip running and headed to morning devotion where we prayed for the child some more. We could hardly believe our eyes when we returned to find the child sitting up breastfeeding!!! We celebrate and thank God that we got to witness another miracle child here in Tonj, and the family left for home grinning from ear to ear!

Hope this encourages you today! Thank you for partnering with us and making it all possible.
