19 July 2017

Today we're celebrating with our Rwandan colleagues because praise God, Esther has recovered! She's no longer suffering from a pleural effusion and the doctors have given her the all clear to leave France.

Esther is flying back home to Rwanda today - join us in praying for a safe and easy journey. Please pray continued protection over her health.

Please keep praying for Esther following her heart operation. Esther is still in hospital in France being treated for pleural effusion (fluid build-up between the lungs and chest). Join us in praying for a breakthrough in her condition this week. Pray that Esther would know God's comfort and peace during this difficult time. Lift up her family back home in Rwanda. 

 "Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me." Psalm 54:4

Take a moment to pray for 6-year-old Esther from Rwanda. Esther travelled to France for heart surgery at the beginning of January. Although the initial operation was a success, Esther has now been readmitted to hospital. She is suffering from a build up of fluid between her lungs and chest. 

Give thanks that, because of RESPOND, Esther has access to treatment. Join us in praying for a speedy recovery for this courageous little girl.
