We received word from the doctor that Sirah’s condition has continued to decline. Here is what he wrote us yesterday:
I am sorry to say that Sirah seems to be getting worse today. She had seemed stable for a few days but I think she may be close to heaven now. Her White Blood Cell Count jumped up to 34,000 and her hemoglobin dropped again to 7.5 gm. She is getting blood this evening. I think she probably has more dead bowel in her abdomen. Short of a miracle I think she may not make it through the weekend. I am very sorry that things turned out so dismally medically. I had prayer with her father and the watchmeri. Sirah is still awake and alert. Thanks for all your prayers. ”
Please pray for Sirah as she prepares to meet the Lord in glory. Pray for Daasilin who has been by her side for the last weeks. She went with Sirah expecting her to have the operation and return in a couple of weeks. She would never have expected this outcome.
Pray for Sirah’s father Elias who is also by her side these last days. Pray the Sirah’s testimony would impact him deeply and cause him to turn to the Lord for salvation.
Pray for Sirah’s mother who is still in Wusuraambya and will likely not see her daughter again this side of heaven.
We are so thankful for the time we’ve had with Sirah and the wonderful testimony she has been of God’s love.
Thanks once again for praying!
Andrew, Cathy, Heidi, Ben, Dan and Josh Goud
