Emmanuella is 5 years old and from Haiti. She arrived in the Pacific Northwest last night with her auntie. They are staying with a wonderful host family. Emmanuella is here for heart surgery. They were exhausted when they arrived and sweet Emmanuella doesn't have much energy because of her heart condition. The host Mom just called to update me and let me know that they are going for immunizations for Emmanuella right now. Please keep them all in your prayers as everyone is tired from so many "changes" and "new things". They are blessed with someone to translate over the phone as the host family doesn't know much creole. The Aunt has been cooking a lot and got to experience a US grocery store today for the very first time.

Pictures coming soon. :)

This beautiful little girl is Mercy. Mercy is four years old and from Uganda. Mercy needs our help desperately. Mercy has a rare seizure disorder that scared people in her country. She was found abandoned and wandering the streets. The people believed that Mercy might be possessed. Wonderful loving people took her in and have been caring for her but her seizures are getting worse. They were able to get a CT scan for her but there are no neurosurgeons in Uganda. The Medical Advocacy Team is working hard to get her the medical care she needs quickly.
