Jostin, following an accident at home

12 October

We've received an update from our friends and colleagues in El Salvador. 

Praise God, Jostin is out of danger and the bleach hasn't done any long-term damage to his eyes. He is doing so well, the doctors have allowed him home. 

"Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods." Psalm 95: 2-3

27 September 

Please pray for four-year-old Jostin who is in hospital following an accident at home. A bag of bleach was opened in Jostin's face and he was immediately admitted to hospital in his community of Colonia Buenos Aires, El Salvador.

Join us in asking God to protect Jostin's eyesight as he heals. At this stage, doctors are uncertain of the long-term prognosis.

"Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion." Psalm 103: 2-4
