One of the ladies in our discipling house had to go to hospital last week. It was quite a traumatic experience, not only because she spent two days in the emergency unit sitting on a cold chair before they admitted her, but also because she has a little 11-month old son whom she wasn’t able to see this whole week. It took about 5 hours until someone actually saw to her when we brought her in. Then another few hours to get X-rays, and again a few hours to have the doctor look at the X-rays.
It’s so sad to see how under-staffed government hospitals are. Since our frequent visits to the emergency unit this week, we’ve thought about going there more regularly in future, just to pray for people and be a support. What a harvest field it is!! Let us know if you want to join us anytime.
We’ve been taking care of the little one while she’s been in hospital. It’s been an interesting week. Please pray for us, as I’ve just heard that the little one is really not doing well, and he needs to go to the hospital now (Sheralyn just came back from the doctor now and phoned me).
So yesterday Z. (want to protect her identity) was discharged and came home. We had our regular evening devotions, and God led me to read Rev. 3:14-22 . It was really amazing how that totally fitted in with Z’s situation. She is from a M. background and hasn’t accepted Jesus into her life yet. But she knows that God is trying to speak to her. We shared how Jesus is knocking on the door of her heart, and she needs to let him in. To end the evening off, the Lord gave us a beautiful confirmation. As we looked at her bedroom door, we saw a verse that we had stuck up on the door quite a few months ago. It was Revelation 3:20, the same verse we had just read!! Praise God!
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. Rev.3:20
If you are reading this, and you haven’t made Jesus king of your life, the same goes for you!
