Little Esther in Need of Prayer

One of our missionary families has been on deputation to head out to the field of India.

They just learned that their oldest daughter, 5 years old, has cancer. It's stage 4! It's all throughout her body, and in her bone marrow. She has a large tumor by her backbone, and then it's just spreading. They're here now for the start of a very intense treatment, which will go on for a year, trying to control and beat this cancer. She will need a lot of chemo, and she will definitely have to get a bone marrow transplant.

My heart just is in sorrow over this. God has been so good to our family. He has worked a miracle in my son's body. I know that even though her situation seems hopeless, they say she has a 20% chance of survival, God is ALL POWERFUL. Whatever happens will be for His glory.

Shari, please send me the family's name so I can add them to our church's prayer list and get the word out for other churches to pray.
