Marie Paul (update)

I wrote in another post about Marie Paul. She had TB of the spine. Because of this her spine became weak and has major problems. One disc is already almost completely gone. Her spine sticks out terribly. She is only ten years old and I felt that she would be totally crippled if we didn’t help. They are treating the TB. Don’t worry TB of the spine isn’t contagious. She is such a sweet girl.

We took her monday to a specialist. He told us to come back today. My wife took her. They put here in a cast. My wife said that it was terrible. They made her mom and Rebecca leave the room. Then you could here her scream and cry as they tried to push her back into place and put the cast on. My wife said that her mom, sister and her were all crying from hearing her suffer.

After they did this she couldn’t walk. Rebecca picked me up so that I could carry her from the car to the house. When I picked her up, trying to carry her like a baby, she just grunted in pain. The doctor said that she really needs surgery but we are not sure if that is even possible in Burkina Faso. Please say a special pray for her. I told our church people that I want to be their pastor. That means I must rejoice when they rejoice, cry when they cry and be there for them when they need it. I do praise the Lord, because I think if this would have gone on much longer she would be completely in a mess, with the situation of her back.
