Please Pray For Peter

Three posts in one day, unprecedented, I know.

With Dad and Mom G, their friends and business associates, Peter and Kim came at the tail end to their trip to Uganda and Kenya.

Peter and Kim’s last night in Kenya, he was bit by something that we monitored while he was with us for 2.5 days.

After 1 1/2 days in Injibara with us, Jon took Peter and Kim to Bahir Dar to catch a flight to Addis. However, they were served at a clinic in Bahir Dar and it looked okay (we were thinking it was a brown recluse spider bite from Kenya), so they moved onto Lalibela (in northern Ethiopia)

We still had time for a little touring and meeting some of our friends.

We even had a birthday party for the girls. We used those short days in bigs ways! :)

Sadly, we lost internet after we thought Peter was on the mend, but we just received news that he has “Sleeping Sickness” which is caused by the bite of a tsetse fly and can be fatal. He was medically evacuated to South Africa after being admitted in critical care to a hospital in Addis Ababa. They are currently in South Africa with wonderful doctors but the news isn’t so great.

Peter and Kim, we are joining thousands in prayer for your healing. 

Will you pray for his complete healing and that all damage done to organs could be healed? His three daughters landed in South Africa this morning and he was able to open his eyes and give them a wink.
