Day after day...

Rabson Phiri, 73 years old, lies alone on this single mattress day after day.  The room is about 8 ft. by 10 ft. with no windows and one door which leads outside.  He suffers from TB, has trouble breathing, has stomach problems, his legs are swollen and he can't walk, and he is HIV positive.  He is all alone except for his daughter who is trying to take care of him all on her own. When I shared Christ with him he shared with me that before he was sick he was a Jehovah's Witness.  Unfortunately, he babbled a lot and repeated himself so I'm not sure of all that he was really understanding.  Please pray for Rabson because he is not able to eat much.  He says he can eat porridge pretty well but that is it.  Even to drink more than a few sips of water at a time will make him vomit.  He did seem thankful for the BGR bucket.  He thanked us for the bucket and the visit in short quick breaths as he struggled to speak and breath at the same time.  Please remember to pray for those who may feel all alone and are so sick to come to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Pray they will feel God's comfort and know true peace in their last days.
