Sick child

We have a brave boy who is sick and admitted at the JSK centre.

Little Hari has had HIV since he was a baby. Though he is now 12 years old, he looks a good two years younger. He had come on Monday with a cold, but it did not settle and now he has pneumonia and is quite weak.

Please pray for Hari. He is from the village with his mother. He had come to get TB treatment and was staying with his late father's brother. During the treatment they found out that Hari had HIV as well - which is how we got in contact.
"When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions." (W. Shakespear Hamlet Act IV scene V)
We asked Hari's mother to call Vicky, the church member who has been going out of his way to help Hari and his mother - and taking them to church as well as well. Turns out that Vicky is himself admitted at a hospital for dysentry.

We had hoped to discharge Hari well at 6 PM this evening. He is not better yet. As we go into the depth of the night we pray that angels will watch over this dear brave boy.
