Prayer Request

bob with some Romanian orphans

Greetings friends, just a quick but important prayer request. A dear friend and co-worker of mine, Bob Fukumoto, is in hospital due to severe complications from a kidney donation he recently made. Bob is a Canadian missionary to Romania, and makes multiple trips a year to work with the orphans in that nation. he has a huge heart, especially for kids, and he's just one of the funnest, funniest guys you'd ever know.

Bob recently gave a kidney
to his nephew who was in great need of one. His nephew has had an awesome recovery and it appears his body is accepting the kidney just fine. Bob was doing well for a couple of weeks post-surgery but then started to have pain, and it was found that due to the surgery there was a blockage in blood flow to his large intestine. Bob had surgery over the weekend and has his *entire* large intestine removed. He is a great deal of pain and the doctors are still waitng for his intestines to start working properly post-surgery. I would greatly appreciate you prayer warriors out there to take a moment and intercede for my dear brother.

Thank you, ladies and sisters in Christ.
