Red Letters

Thanks to you who sent letters to sweet NINA. They have already been read to her at her bedside. If you haven’t sent a note of encouragement, come on, what are you waiting for. This is a simple way to act on your compassion for an orphan. Here’s an update from our Vladimir, Russia, staff:

Dear
friends,

Thank
you very much for your prayers for Nina Kashirina. We’d
like to tell you that yesterday, February 13, Nina was operated on and the
doctors amputated her left leg above the knee. The surgery went well, but
it will take time for Nina to recover from it. In the future she will get
an artificial leg (when? How? And who is going to pay for that, the quality of
it – all of these things are a matter of a big question). Nina will still have
to go through several more rounds of chemotherapy. Right now Ira, Nina’s sister, is staying with
her at the hospital
and is taking care of her. Please,
keep both girls in your prayers so that they would feel God’s presence
covering them. Pray
for Nina’s healing. Right now it’s very
important that her wound would not
get infected and for chemotherapy to destroy all the cancer. Pray for her
spiritual and emotional health, and pray for Ira to be strong now as she is
taking care of her sister. Pray for her
to be an encourager for Nina. On
behalf of Nina we’d like to thank you for all the letters that you have sent
to her. It was very nice of you to write her. She was very touched by your
kind words.

Once
again thank you very much for everything.

Sincerely, Vladimir
Office staff.

I’d love to raise the money for an artificial leg for her. How about you?
