We have just received news that Kelvin Zulu, our bookkeeper at the Hands at Work HUB offices, has cerebral malaria, the most serious form of malaria which acts very quickly and can cause permanent damage. He was ill for several days but was misdiagnosed. He is in the intensive care unit at the nearest hospital, Themba. We praise God that he has been diagnosed and is stable at this time.
As the friends of the paraplegic man, tore off the roof of the home Jesus was sharing in to present their friend at Jesus’ feet (Mark 2), let us with the same commitment, enter in to prayer for our friend, presenting him at the feet of Jesus, our Healer.
Please pray now, especially in these next critical hours.
Thank all of you for surrounding Kelvin in prayer! We saw him this morning. He remains in ICU and his condition is serious, but he has improved and we were able to have a conversation with him. He had a restful night, thank God! and he even cracked a couple of jokes. He's on the best medication they have through IV. Please keep praying for FULL healing with no permanent damage. Thank you friends!
Hi friends! Thank you for your continued prayers for Kelvin! He is doing very well in comparison to the critical condition he was in just a few days ago. Although he is still weak and in ICU until his potassium level goes down (it's high due to his kidneys not working for so long). He is still only able to be fed through an IV, which he says makes him feel like a machine. In general, in his mind he is ready to go home and head back to work, but he's starting to realise now that it will be a long road to recovery because of how serious his condition was and how much time it will take for his body to heal.
Please pray for an encouraged spirit for Kelvin today and even a peace and understanding that God does and will use all situations to further His kingdom. This too can be a part of His big, grand plan for our lives, if we let it be.
If you have any notes or encouraging words for Kelvin, please send them my way and I will make sure that he gets them. Today I brought him all the messages that all of you have been sending me over email and Facebook. He said that it made him feel not so alone, thank you!
