Prayer Request for Sister Ruth. After a long dry spell of being unable to meet with and talk via video chat with my brother Chitti Gampala, we finally were able to connect last evening and it was wonderful to see and talk with him. He conveys the thanks of the Gampala family and the congregations for your prayers and support for them.
In our conversation Chitti relayed a prayer request for my Amma, Sister Ruth who is suffering severe cataracts and will require surgery to correct them. Her vision is now limited to peripheral only. Ruth is not very trusting of doctors in India and there is some substantial costs to the surgery. Ericka and I encouraged Chitti to help Ruth overcome her fear and get the surgery done.
They requested prayers for Ruth that she will indeed allow herself to be treated for the problem, that the eye doctor doing the surgery will be blessed and that Our Father would speed her recovery so her vision can improve. She wants to be able to read the Word of God again, and I need Ruth to be able to be the hawk she has been to protect me from Chitti slipping green ‘cobra’ (ghost peppers) into my food when I go visit.
