Continue to Pray for Raquel

Dear Friends, Family & Alumni,

Last night, the doctor decided to do an emergency surgery on Raquel. Her blood count was too low, and he suspected it was caused by the “leaking” spleen (I guess in English we say “ruptured” spleen).

But when they opened her up, they discovered that it wasn’t her spleen at all. It was her liver. Her liver was cut in two, like it had been sliced with a knife. It didn’t show up in the Ultra-sound they did when she came into the hospital. The doctor wanted to open her up the first night, but he decided to rely on what he saw on the Ultra-sound and X-rays.

I’m not sure how you “repair” a liver or what they exactly did, but they had to give her blood last night, and are watching her closely. Her mother was able to come to the hospital yesterday, so she was there with her.

Good news:
Her ankle isn’t broken! They thought it was, but now it’s not!

When she was admitted into the hospital the first night, the nurse that was assigned to her started talking to Pricilla, the Master’s Commission leader. She told her, “You know, I used to be a “Castillista” (Castle team member). I even attended 4 Power Retreats at the camp. In fact, one time we climbed the volcano behind the Prayer Fortress, and just like Raquel, I fell off the mountain, but someone caught me by my shirt, and saved my life. But I fell away from the Lord, and then one by one, each of my family members fell away, too.”

Priscilla asked her, “Would you like to come back to the Lord?” She said yes. Priscilla prayed with her as she reconciled her life with Christ.

Prayer Request:
  1. Pray for Raquel’s complete recovery.
  2. Pray for a financial miracle. We are glad we took her to the best hospital. The other hospital would have probably treated her for “minor injuries,” and sent her home with a bleeding liver. But we need the Lord to provide the miracle of paying her hospital bill. If you would like to help with an offering, please let us know. We have to pay the bill on Wednesday.

Thank you for your prayers in advance.

Your missionary,
