I have a former student, Philipp, whom I taught when he was in the 4th grade.
He is now 17 and is in bad shape. He has lost both of his testicles to cancer in past few months. Now they have discovered cancer in his lymph nodes and serious blood clots in his lungs.
He is coming home from the hospital for a few days and they are scheduling surgery for the blood clots first.
It's not good.
And, to my knowledge, he is not saved nor is his family. This is burdening me.
Just picture in your mind a "rough as a cob" little country family. Please, please pray for Philipp's salvation and his healing.
P.S. (I have another former student who lost it all to testicular cancer when he was in his late 20's. He obviously struggles, but he copes rather well - now he is in his late 30's - so my hopes are that Philipp can, too. But my biggest prayer is for Philipp's salvation.)
