“V. was one of the saddest cases we’ve seen. He was an older man, dirty, weak, hardly able to stand and walk. He was sitting on a rock outside a very dirty house. He has TB and has defaulted on his mediciness because he is unable to get to the clinic to pick them up. It turned out his sister lives down the road. The caretakers, along with Pastor KK, V.’s neighbor, fetched the sister. She apparently collects his old age pension and does absolutely nothing for her brother, including not feeding him!! She was a very angry woman who argued with us and the care worker, Rose, telling us she was so tired and had to take care of her husband. We will refer V. to a new and incredible male nurse, Zwelithini, who is working with us at Masoyi. He will try to sort things out and possibly get V. into an old age home. As we left, the workers told us the sister will come back after we leave and beat her helpless brother. Before we left, Rose told me V. wanted to know Jesus! We told him about Jesus and prayed with him and he asked Jesus into his heart!! We are praying protection for him.’
Please join Frank and Ruthie in praying for this man.
