Today we can announce some really good news. The little Zambian girl, Rebecca, who had her face badly burnt, has arrived in South Africa for some face reconstruction. The obstacles to this happening have been great but we have pushed through and finally the day has arrived.
I understand that Rebecca will need to be in and out of hospital for about a year until the work is completed. Please pray for her – and her mum, and give thanks for the skills and generosity of the surgeons and nursing staff. Jane and John Maclare have worked so hard on this project and have made it happen. We are very grateful for their care and love. The £2000 we raised as a church is being well spent.
I have a photograph of Rebecca arriving in South Africa and I have pinned to the Mission Board. The quality is not great but you can sense the little girl’s excitement.
