“My prayer for Mark is for him to grow up very well, get a job, help poor people and be kind to everyone, and be God-fearing,” said Beatrice. “The back was just like that, a sore with pus. The doctors advised me to keep it clean, in two weeks it got closed,” said Beatrice. Mark was delivered at a regional referral hospital where the doctors there told Beatrice to wait until Mark was six months old for surgery. Once he was of age, she returned and they gave her a referral letter to CURE. Beatrice and her husband Steven gathered money for two months for transport and then Beatrice and Mark traveled to CURE. Beatrice felt burdened seeing the other children with spina bifida who were in wheel chairs and in pain, she is thankful Mark is not in pain. “I want Mark to grow up, I want him to study… help others like they are helping him. He has to be very kind knowing it is God who saved him,” said Beatrice. Back home, Steven is working as a soldier and watching over their three other children. Please join us in praying for Mark's healing and for his family back home!
On Sunday, Beatrice and Mark were discharged home! We will see them again at a follow up clinic in the town of Lira next month. Please be praying for Mark to continue to recover well!
Beatrice told us, “He is just wanting to sit and play. The doctors said we will be discharged on Sunday and the dressing will be opened tomorrow.” This morning we could hear Beatrice singing to Mark, “Baby Jesus I love you, baby Jesus I love you, baby Mark I love you…” Mark and Beatrice attended a class today on the cause of spina bifida and the importance of prenatal vitamins. Please be praying for Mark's wound dressing to go well and for Beatrice, that they will get to go home on Sunday.
“It has gone well, no problems, no worries,” said Beatrice. Mark is now in the ward and seems very happy. He was smiling and playing as his mother tried to make their bed with him on it. He has become a favorite among the staff who enjoy coming to say hello and to play with him. Beatrice led worship with another mother while here at CURE; back home she is a member of her church's’ choir. Please be praying for Mark to continue to improve and recover.
“Thank God for his life, thank God for his condition, for the mother, for the doctors that they are given knowledge that what they are going to do for this baby will be successful. We are canceling the devil's plans in Jesus name,” said nurse Lydia as she prayed for Mark before his operation. “I’m just feeling comfortable for him to go in well and come back (from surgery) well,” said Beatrice. Prior to Mark’s operation, he met a handful of visitors who gave him a get well message which he enjoyed playing with and eventually took a bite out of! Mark is currently in surgery for his spina bifida, and this evening he will spend the night in the ICU and hopefully be moved back to the ward tomorrow. Please be praying for Mark to have a swift recovery.
“They (doctors) said, Mark is for surgery tomorrow,” said Beatrice. Mark and Beatrice have had a good day today! We caught them playing with a blown up glove and we heard Beatrice singing to Mark which he enjoyed. Beatrice’s prayer request is, “I want them to pray that Mark comes out very well from surgery.”
On Thursday, Mark and Beatrice arrived at CURE and they were seen by our doctors and admitted. Since then, blood work and scans have been performed and they have settled into the ward and have even made some friends! Please be praying for Mark that his upcoming operation goes well!
