Yesterday a man who is so dear to our hearts, a really wonderful Christian brother, suffered a ruptured carotid artery.
This was very unexpected. He is a healthy and active man, one who is always there to help anyone he knows is in need; wise and gentle. His wife is a sweet friend to me.
This is very serious. The rupture is high up, even into the brain, in an inoperable area. If he survives, he was told that he will never be able to do hard work again, but must be very careful to not stress the artery any more than necessary.
They have three beautiful teenage daughters. Please pray that we can selfishly keep him here, for his wife and daughters, for us. We have no doubts as to what will become of him should his body die, but we are selfish and do not want to do without him.
Pray for comfort, peace and rest. I know so many of you have suffered equal losses in your lives and you understand these prayers so well.
