"Where Is My Sister?"
This is the hardest question for Daniel to answer little Chris, because she did not survive. I’m weeping as I write this. Daniel’s wife Rahila delivered a baby girl about 5 am today at Faith Alive, with Dr. Ben, Nurse Lauretta and others. But there was a problem with the umbilical cord and the baby was not alive at birth.
The joy is that Rahila’s health is good, but she is still at the clinic recovering. How do you recover from this? As is the custom, Daniel and some others went to General Christian Cemetary this morning to bury the baby.
I’m so thankful that Holly is there now to comfort them. She was with Daniel before I called, and was on her way to visit Rahila.
Daniel says not to cry, but to appreciate God, because He works all things for good. “We can’t say ‘why, why, why’ to God.” Please keep their family in your prayers. They have had so much loss over the last month – two of Rahila’s older sisters have died, and then the crisis. Please God, let’s get little Chris the surgery he needs so they can experience joy.
