Update from Mis Marcile

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Cor.12:9

God is so faithful... this verse has been my favorite go to verse this month. This month It literally felt like God was giving me more than I could handle but over and over he showed himself faithful. In the previous post Gloria shared some about what we have been seeing and experiencing. But thankfully things have slowed down and we have been able to get out a little bit more. Today we went out to visit one of our blood pressure/blood sugar patients. He had been coming to the clinic monthly for meds but because he got sicker he's not been coming. So we went to visit him and found a very sick man. We quickly realized he was in bad shape and told them to get a cot and bring him to clinic. He is now under the care of our doctor.
An update on our burn guy... on day 6 of his stay here in the hospital room and having his bandage changed twice a day, he made a turn for the worse... we discussed his situation with the family and told them we need to transport to a bigger hospital. But the family refused. They begged us to take him home to die. We prayed and discussed our options. We felt peace about taking him home and the next day he died. 
This is difficult as we do everything we can to help our patients and sometimes the family refuses to take our advice on the situation and we are left with one choice... to respect the family.
Some of Gloria's family and 2 of Verlin's friends came for a visit. We had a really good time with them here. They helped with alot of jobs around the compound and also at clinic. On Saturday we hiked up to Fort Gary.
Thanks so much for praying for us!
