Many people have asked how they can be praying for the Promise House…here are our current praises and prayer requests.
Lucas Andrew Chery was born on December 10 and is now almost 2 months old! We pray for his bonding, health and development and for mom and dad to get enough rest to keep up our responsibilities in the Promise House.
Wilson has been busy at the new land in Galman. The perimeter wall and house foundation are nearly finished and the well has been drilled. We pray for safety of the work crew that has been there, for his brother Peter who is supervising when Wilson can’t be there, and for everything to continue running smoothly.
We are also praying for our new neighbors and that we would be able to build healthy relationships with them. Our closest neighbor had a baby a few weeks after Lucas was born and since friends gave to us so generously, we were able to bless them with a lot of newborn items they needed. We were also able to give the father a job with the construction. We pray for that family, along with the others in Galman that we don’t know as well yet.
J was having some trouble with his right thigh for a while and after an x-ray in town, we discovered he has bone growing in his muscle tissue. It can be painful for him, but there’s not too much that can be done at this point besides pain control. It should eventually be reabsorbed, but that can take up to a year. We pray for his pain to be well controlled and for fast healing.
The kids have a new special education teacher, Rachel, and she has been doing a wonderful job with them! We pray for her to have the energy she needs and for clarity as she will be deciding soon whether to stay for the 2018-2019 school year.
H is finally smiling! However, it’s still not too often. We pray that this positive change would continue and that we would find new ways to bring her joy and help her express it.
