I went back to the hospital this afternoon to check on our patient from yesterday. We learned that he was misdiagnosed. Instead of being in a detox, he has meningitis with encephalitis, or meningoencephalitis. He is in the ICU, and his prognosis is poor.
Please pray for him.
Pray for his three friends, sitting with him at the hospital.
Pray for the community, that meningitis won’t spread.
Pray for wisdom for everyone involved.
Pray that everything would somehow be to the glory of God.
This is all hitting me very hard. Seeing the very real possibility of this man dying, who was just in my house yesterday; knowing that we could have been his only encounter with Christ and hope. Seeing the hopelessness and sorrow in his friends’ eyes. Feeling such a deep love for this community and being so helpless in so many ways.
We are going to Chiang Mai tomorrow, and we’re trying to determine how to know about his situation and watch for more cases while we are gone. God is good, and he knows exactly how this will turn out. He knows exactly how He will be glorified. But please pray with us.
