Prayer is needed for Sureepon, the mother of Best who is one of our children at Blessing Home. As you know, TMM helped pay for brain surgery for Sureepon, who has had a bullet lodged in her head the past three years and it was causing her lots of trouble, including paralyzing her arm. Soon after surgery, Sureepon was recovering well and miraculously regaining use of her arm. However, she came to church this past Sunday and told us that she is experiencing painful swelling on the sutures. When we looked at her head, that part where she had her surgery was swelled to an extreme amount and was discolored as well. Sureepon is going to the doctor this week, and TMM will help with the medical bills for this as well. But she needs God's healing power so please pray.
Also, a few months ago, Pastor Banya said we were having problems with stray dogs (there are hundreds of them in the area because Thai people are Buddhist, and Buddhist believe that these dogs have souls and will eventually reincarnate to be people). The stray dogs have been staying near the entrance to Blessing Home, making it dangerous for the children. When we priced out having a gate, awning, and new sign built, it was going to cost well over $1,000. But a local Thai Christian helped to build it for only $340! It looks great and now the children are safe from the stray dogs.
