Prayer request

We just recieved an email from our dear friends Lily and Ruslan. Lily had an operation about two years ago to remove a one pound tumor from the area around her thyroid. As this tumor grew it wrapped around her vocal chords and created a great deal of pressure on her heart. In the process of removing the tumor; her vocal chords and nerves were damaged, two years later it is still difficult for her to breathe and speak.

Lily needs another operation so that the damage can be repaired, however, there is no guarantee that she will be able to speak above a whisper in the future.

In October Lily and Ruslan will be traveling to Moscow, Russia from their current home in the country of Uzbekistan to have her second operation. Please pray for them as they travel, the success of the surgery and for their two small children who will be staying with grandparents in Uzbekistan.
