I just received this text from my friend, Martha, who is one of the most wonderful Christian woman I know:
“Plse pray 4 Ezra, Jacques an Julie, he is seriously ill in Durbanville hospital. Has infection in his blood, 2 much pas on his kidneys, an a virus that can permanently damage his lungs. Plse dont phone Jacques as he is in Jhb on Synod, just send sms, thx luv Martha”
Jacques is her son, and him and his wife Julie are missionaries who are to return to China in January. They have 3 kids, Zachary and Jordan and a newly adopted Ezra. Please will you keep them in your prayers, as they prepare for their return to China, and that Ezra recovers. This is a huge blow, as Ezra is only one year old, and this is a scary situation.
But God is in control.
