*** Update- Prayer Requested for Team Member in Myanmar

Aug 16, 2016

Southeast Asia: Samuel Yangmi, team member in Southeast Asia is requesting prayer.  Please see the following request:

As many of you have been praying for me concerning my left eye hemorrhage, it seems that it is going to require a vitrectomy. I’m going in tomorrow  (Tuesday 08/16/2016 PHT) to have a final check up and Wednesday or Thursday schedule the surgery. 

Continue to pray for the doctor Nimit Ittipunkul MD will be doing the surgery. Will keep you posted as we now leave it to the Lord and the hands of the doctors.  

It has been a good 4 months that I wake up hoping to see better but a 2nd and 3rd hemorrhage has indicated to the doctors, they should go in and repair it less the retina becomes detached. 

In His hands,


*** Update as of 17- August:

We received an update from Sam and Lumae last night and we are very happy to share a miracle unfolding!

After numerous tests, Dr. Nimit found that there is no detachment and damage to Sam’s retina. Somehow the doctor has seen a great improvement on the condition of Sam’s eyes, that vitrectomy might already be too invasive of an approach. Instead, new medications are recommended for injection to clear the hemorrhage. Dr. Nimit will be discussing with another doctor on lesser evasive solutions to the problem.

Sam is very thankful for your prayers, and amazingly, he feels his vision is improving because of them!

Let us continue to pray for Sam and Lumae. Sam is scheduled for another appointment with the doctors on the 25th to deliberate on the doctors’ plan of action. Please pray for Sam’s doctors as well, that God will show them what needs to be done to bring comfort and healing to Sam.
