Praying for Deve...

Today Deve turned 2.

Happy Birthday sweet girl.
Deve spent her birthday at the post-op clinic at New Life Children's Home in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
A place she has been at with her father since the earthquake.
Not because of an earthquake related injury but due to a congenital heart defect.
She was scheduled for surgery at St. Damien hospital around January 12th but seeing as this hospital collapsed, surgery in Haiti was no longer possible.
She is waiting.
While I was working at the Medishare hospital I met a cardiologist there and asked him to look at Deve.
The diagnosis written on her papers (all in French) was persistent arterial canal.
We weren't sure what this meant and with only auscultation the cardiologist could not be sure as to the type of defect.
So again we waited, trying to make some contacts to get her out.
Deve needs specialist care.
She needs to be accepted and flown to the Dominican or USA.
We need to pray for a miracle.
For some reason the logistics are taking forever.
Yes, she is growing well, happy and not distressed but it looks like she really does need this surgery sooner rather than later.
Please pray for Deve and for her dad.
It is her birthday today.
Let's pray that this year is one full of miracles for her.
A year of open doors and God's provision and healing.
So far, it has seemed pretty impossible to get this arranged.
But God is the master of the universe and He can do the impossible.
Join me.
Let's stand in the gap for Deve and her family.

It's so awesome to look at past prayers and see how faithful the Lord is! I have been studying Psalm 121 this past week and now praying that over her life, or rather thanking God for those true promises already over her life!
