Update on Luka

Here is the most recent update from Tim and Angie Sliedrecht regarding their nephew, Luka:

Luka Shaarda is undergoing a blood transfusion and dialysis in Nairobi, Kenya. He has Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). They REALLY like the doctor that they are working with. But, PLEASE PRAY that he responds quickly to the treatment. It could be a 6-8 week recovery in hospital! Mandy and Josh cannot be away from ...their 2 daughters for that long! We need miraculous healing and recovery!!

Please also be praying for Tim and Angie and their children Avalien and Moses as they are heading back to Soroti, Uganda on Saturday. It is stressful enough packing and saying goodbye to loved ones here, but there is much added stress and worry now that Luka is so sick.
