7 Year Old Boy Needs Help Post 1

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Dear Friends,

ORH is asking for help for a family which is suffering.  It is my hope that we will be able to see the family's needs, weep with them over these needs, and help them with these needs.

Please read this letter from Missionary Johnny Daniels in Puerto Rico.

“Dear Bretheren:  Stephen and Lesha Johanitan are graduates of Calvary Baptist Bible College in Puerto Rico and are now serving in Guyana, S.A.  They have recently brought a need to our attention concerning the health of their 7 year old son Ethan who is in need of having surgery due to a complication with his circumcision.  The condition is life threatening."

In an effort to correct the first botched surgery, the boy has experienced two more botch surgeries.  The family is grieved and bewildered.

We must find a place where the situation can be permanently corrected.  This mother and father earn about $600.00 a month in their ministry with the Amerindians in the jungles of Guyana.  They have no way of solving this, as it needs to be solved.

Rehearsing the condition of the boy at this moment is too heart-wrenching to talk about.  I have three boys married with children and serving God.  When they were little this situation would have been unthinkable for me as their father.  

ORH has sent $600.00 to Johnny Daniels to pay for immediate needs of passports and other travel documents and needs for the family.  We will send a total of $1000.00 for the immediate needs.

We also have contacted a pediatrics urologist group in Miami, FL.  One of the physicians has assured us that she can correct the problems.

There are several needs to pray about, if the family has the surgery done in the United States.
1.       Pray that this surgeons group is the right one.
2.       Pray for a hospital willing to work with ORH.
3.       Pray that we find a place for the family to stay.
4.       Pray for travel costs for the family.
5.       Pray that this family’s suffering can be overcome by our prayers.

Please pray for God to answer.  Prayer is our only hope.  We must help this family.  Any suggestions that you might have would be greatly appreciated.

God bless,
Jan Milton
