Opio's Urgent Surgery

Recently our precious Opio began to be very sick and weak.

His body had gotten weak and so we met and saw many doctors and specialists over the last few months.

He has had tests upon tests and many emergency appointments.

Just last week we finally met with a doctor who shared with us the urgent need to have three operations one to put in a gastronomy tube called a "Peg" where the food will be able to go directly to his stomach.

This will Lord willing help his body begin to heal and put on weight. 

He also needs to have a throat surgery to remove a hernia and reconstruction of his throat that causes his frequent vomiting and congestion.

He's a fighter our little brave 5 year old Opio.

He is such a tenderhearted little guy and loves to be carried in my sling.

It doesn't matter if he is sick in bed he never fails to give us the most charming smile!

We have begun meeting with specialists to see how to best move forward for our Opio.

 The cost for these operations are overwhelming..But we know that God is faithful and He will provide every need that our Opio has because He loves him.

Due to Uganda not having the specialists here in Kampala - he will need to travel to Nairobi  Kenya where the specialist is in order to have these operations.

We currently need to raise $5,000 USD for the above surgeries.

 Would you please pray and considering donating? 

The doctors have told us that if he doesn't have these three surgeries his life will be short..  
The reality of this is not easy.

But I know that God has good plans for my Opio!

" For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11

Our precious Opio needs these surgeries and he needs them urgently.

Would you please pray about being apart of helping Opio have a hope 
and a beautiful future?

On behalf of our Opio thank you, thank you, thank you.

Please be praying for our Opio in the days ahead and for wisdom for the doctors and healing and protection over him.Pray for provision and that God will direct our steps. Pray that we will have favour traveling since in the past they have given us trouble at the border. 

Thank you sweet friends.
