Please Pray For Esther
Please pray for Esther. She is a 6 year old girl who is the daughter of some friends we went to college with 10 years ago, Daniel and Lydia, and the niece of a friend, Jennifer, we have. Her parents are missionaries to Mongolia, through BBF, and have 3 other young children. They had to quickly come back to the states because Esther became very sick and needed surgery right away. She had tumors in her kidneys removed and they were found to be cancerous. The type of cancer is still to be determined. So, they moved her to the cancer floor to a regular room as her recovery has been going smoothly. Since then, she has had a C/T scan that has revealed cancer nodes in both of her lungs. She will have a needle biopsy on Monday and hopefully the results will be in by next Friday. One of the top pathologists in the nations is looking over her case. Please pray for Esther. Currently, she is laughing and playing with her siblings as her recovery from surgery is going smoothly. One year ago she was a happy, healthy little girl and now she is sick with cancer. Her parents and siblings look forward to running, hugging, and playing with her again.
