Pray for Tata

Last week we got a rather upsetting phone call. It seems that Conrad's Dad had been concerned because he lost his appetite, then, as a result, had lost some weight. He's already a thin man, so they were worried. He went to the doctor, who after running some tests, suspected there was some cancer. He then went to a specialist, who diagnosed him with Lung Cancer.

He is currently in the hospital with some breathing issues and will be receiving some kind of treatment this week. The medical system in India is not quite like it is here, so it's been difficult getting more specific informaiton on how he is doing.

Needless to say, we were stunned and upset by this news. Conrad's Dad is in his 70's, but has been rather healthy for his age. It's hard on Conrad to be so far away from his family, especially now. We are working on getting a passport for Grace. We will probably be making a trip in the next couple of months. Please agree with us in prayer for healing for Isabelle and Grace's Tata.
