We have been missing Esteban for the past few weeks. A little while ago he started getting seizures and wasn't able to work anymore. After a few doctors visits and tests it was confirmed that he had pre cancer in his colon. He was losing a lot of blood and needed more blood in order for them to operate. Unfortunately none of his family was able to donate, mostly because of health issues, so we decided that we would try. Jake, Tammy, and Peter took the trip to the hospital, and thankfully Peter had the right blood type and was able to donate. Praise God for bringing Peter here and using him in such a great way! Tammy has the right blood type too but they would not accept her blood because it was a tad bit low on iron.
Now we heard that he has gone from pre cancer to cancer and it's spreading quickly. Esteban needs surgery as soon as possible but they can't operate on him because he is still too low on blood. So this morning Avis, Tammy, and 2 volunteers Scott and Victor went to Trujillo to donate. Please pray that Tammy's blood will be accepted this time and that the others will be able to donate as well. Esteban has a wife and four children who need him, lifting them up in prayer as well.
Thankful for our heavenly Father who is in control, who hears and answers prayer, who heals, comforts, provides and strengthens, and who works all things out for good to those who love Him. He is faithful and Good, Always
