Teacher in Kabala very ill...

Please keep teacher Lucy in your prayers. She is suffering severe appendicitis and will undergo surgery soon. The doctor is in Kabala and available. Lucy is a faithful teacher to our students in Kabala, Sierra Leone where we are in the construction completion phase of a new school building for the village children. We are extremely indebted to Lucy, who - along with the other teachers of Nazareth House Kabala School - have been volunteering their time to provide first class education to these village children. We have only recently been able to give some financial assistance to the teachers, but because we most depend on donations and the economy is struggling - it has not been as consistent as we wish. As soon as more details are in, we will let you know how she is progressing. Thank you.
