This story is amazing. We asked to pray for Monica, daughter of Pulding
who is our translation helper. It just so happened that unbeknown to
Pulding and us also the timing of Monica’s arrival at German Doctor’s
Hospital in the city coincided with a team of surgical specialists from
Germany being at another free hospital which is owned by the city
government from November 8 through 19. German Doctor’s Hospital sent
Monica over to the city hospital. The German surgeons focused on
surgery for things such as cleft lip or cleft pallet and the kind of
problem Monica has. They operated on Monica the night of November 8 US
East coast time. Hmm. Wonder Who arranged the timing of all that?
Lack of an uvula was what was causing Monica’s speech problem. The
uvula is the little finger like thing that sticks down from the top at
the rear of the mouth. We don’t know exactly what the surgeons did, but
Pulding said they somehow formed a uvula.
Monica is currently on a diet of milk, ice cream, and cold water. Also
fever and pain medication. Last night for the first time since surgery
she was able to get up and walk to the bathroom. Please *PRAY* for a
good recovery and when healed her speech will be understandable. She
and Pulding will be staying at the German Doctor’s Hospital’s “Mother’s
Haus” until she is strong enough to travel home.
Wonderful how our loving, merciful, all knowing God arranged the surgeon
specialists from Germany to be there ready for her!
