This time I’m not asking prayer for myself but for two other people.
The first person I’d like to ask prayer for is for a teenage boy who attends my church here in Reghin, Romania. His name is Csaby and he is 17 years old. He was hit by a car on Wednesday morning (April 29) and it is very bad. He is in the Targu Mures hospital now, he was operated on, the spleen was removed and he has three broken ribs, a broken scapula and skull fracture. He is currently in a coma and his brain is swollen too. There are already a lot of people who are praying for him here in Romania but my prayer request is that more people know about this to bring before God in prayer.
I myself taught Csaby in one of my English clases when I taught in Reghin my first term here in Romania. Csaby also goes to my home church here. I know he loves God with all of his heart, he has a deep passion for God and for people to come to Christ. He loves life and also has such a child like faith. I remember when I first met him he told me he was praying and fasting for a set of drums. I asked him where are the drums going to come from and he told me that he doesn’t know but he just knew that God will provide them. Sure enough God did that! The drums came and he has faithfully played in the worship band since then and even before that he played on a little bongo set.
Please join with me as well as the Romanians and Hungarians in prayer for Csaby. For God to wake him up from the coma and for God to heal him completely. Nothing is impossible with God!
My second prayer request…
On the exact same day when I heard this shocking news about Csaby my Mom sent me an e-mail about another shocking news. I’d like to also include this prayer request. Someone my family knows well (his name is Doug Baker) has brain cancer, he went in for surgery on Friday or if he didn’t get in on Friday he will have the operation on Saturday.
I feel bad that this e-mail is late. I apologize about that. That’s all the details I have about Doug. Please also uplift him in your prayers as well.
Thanks for your prayers for Csaby and Doug. Please pass along this prayer request to people. Pleae also pray for their families as well.
