For the last few weeks our team has been out of the tribe, getting medical help for Dan. He had several nasty viruses, almost died because of an allergic reaction to penicillin, and now is having chest pains. A trip to the doctor yesterday confirmed that he has pericarditis, or inflamation of the outer part of the heart. He is going for more tests today; in the meantime, neither he nor his wife are sleeping well and Dan is suffering from pain and shortness of breath. Please pray for the Alkires. Ask God for Dan’s recovery and for our quick return to our ministry in the mountains.
