Standing in the need
. . of prayer. I'm posting pictures from rounds this morning, because I believe that pictures lend reality to another person's life, and draw in intercession. This is Baluku. His story is a couple of posts below: 14 year old mom who died, 35 year old bereaved grandmother who is now trying to be his surrogate breastfeeder. He's also getting baby formula from us. Pray he would thrive. Bhitighale, which means "they left me behind . . ", who has spent half his sad little life in the hospital with his barely coping grandmother. If he survives to a year it will be a miracle. Twins Nyangoma and Kato, whose disengaged mother usually leaves them sitting alone in the bed, and came in near starvation. Preemie who has gone from 785 grams to 1,610 . . . a life in the balance. And lastly Spice, with mom M., whose spunk and desperation speak to me. If she can gain a little more, we'll send her with her AIDS medicines and food back to her relatives in northern Uganda. Thanks for lifting these little lives up and asking for miracles of mercy.
