Today I NEED you to join me in prayer!
Three years ago Damien and I went on a short missions trip to
Mt Hagen, PNG.
We helped build the building you can see behind the photo of myself and the beautiful baby.
Such a rugged beauty, such genuine struggling but loving people,
You had to be touched somewhere deep within your soul.
We became the best of friends with Joe and Helen.
We learnt that they had lost a baby boy to still birth just before our second trip.
Such a terrible thing!
and then again TWINS to still birth 12 months later.
We decided to raise some money to get them to Australia to see our Doctor,
to discover what was going wrong.
Through our church and local community we got them here!
We found out when they arrived that Helen was 19 weeks pregnant!!!!
Do you know what was wrong?
The most simple thing
Urinary Tract Infection.
Just a simple course of antibiotics....
Here is the beautiful Jo-ann!
She is now 18 mths old and talking REALLY well
(fancy trying to learn 4 different languages along side each other!)
Helen's next baby is a week over due
they are going to do a 'forced' (induction) labour
In PNG this is VERY scary
- the conditions,
the risks are extreme
PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYER FOR THIS GROWING FAMILY
Pray for HELEN
Pray for the BABY
Pray for JOE
Pray for the HOSPITAL STAFF
that all will be well
- that we will have a healthy mum
and a healthy bub.
