He didn’t die under the stars :-)

We went back to the village and I am so glad to report the great news that the old man is recovering! (see previous blog post – Dying under the stars) In fact he walked to church to see us and the horribly infected wound that covered most of the back of his neck has now scabbed over and is on its way to being healed.

We prayed for him again and after drinking sugar with tea and sharing some biscuits we took him to buy socks and shoes.

New socks and shoes.

It was a lovely moment and saying bye to him this time was a happy occasion.
Keep praying for him as he is still quite fragile and also pray for the church he attends as the pastor spoke to us about wanting to house several old people in similar circumstances but needing the funds and the building to do so. Pray for this dream to be realised.

A happy good bye
A happy good bye to the man in the new shoes!
