As always, there is good news and some news that is not so good. Let us start with the good news, and it is very good news. During the two months since I've been back Shibu hasn't drunk alcohol, or smoked - he was always a heavy smoker also, and he's looking so well and happy and neatly dressed and shaved - when we meet different ones they all comment on the difference and Shibu is so happy to hear them say so. And he's eating well and putting on weight - in the past he was pretty skeletal. I think you would have noticed the difference when you came. I know many people are praying for him and surely God has answered our prayers. In the past he has been off it for shorter times and has slipped back so let us keep up our prayers to Jesus. I've heard that it's one of the most difficult addictions to completely get over.
