The grace and peace of our Lord Jesus.
It's Saturday morning and I've managed the kidney medicines distribution alone, and without strain, so things are looking up. Shibu has just arrived so I'll get a few stories and then we go and send a couple of pictures.
Ajayan, 48, is from Changanoor (with Shibu, right leg bandaged). He was a heavy drinker, and, crossing the road, he was hit by a vehicle. He can't remember anything. Because of his addiction, his family won't have anything to do with him. He will need an operation [which HHI will probably need to pay for]. Shibu is doing all that is needed.
Mariyandi Marthandum - from Tamil Nadu (on bed with Shibu behind - left leg in plaster). Crossing the road, he was hit by car. Police brought him to the hospital. His leg has been set in plaster. An operation is not necessary. Shibu has been looking after him for 3 weeks. He will soon be discharged - but he has nowhere to go. We are searching for a place.
Thampi (Kerala) was walking beside the railway line and was hit by a train. Both legs were severed. Shibu has been looking after him for one month. Nobody has come.
Unknown (with oxygen mask. Shibu by bed). Only today, after two weeks, has he regained a little consciousness. He is feeding by rice tube. We don't know anything about him. Yesterday our church prayed for him, at Shibu's especial request, and Shibu is so happy that today he is rather better.
