A special Prayer

This is little 6 year old Esther Faith and her mom from the Philipines. Lawson and Nathan met her on their first mission trip there 2 years ago and saw her again this year. Esther has a hole in her heart. The boys arranged to have her flown to Manila to see doctors there and to be assessed. They got her medical records and met with several doctors here in the states to check on flying her here for treatment. The doctors said she is not a candidate for surgery since so much time has passed and damage has now been done to her heart and kidneys. Lawson and Nathan have spent many hours with many tears praying for Esther. We would like to ask you to also pray for this precious young girl and her mom.
