please pray for my friend!
« on: April 07, 2011, 11:28:28 PM »
this 14 year old girl, Alia, has always been a good friend of my sister's and myself, and our mothers work together.  she played pee-wee soccer with my sister 2 years ago. 

well, she collapsed during sports yesterday.  she was air-lifted to another town, and it looks like her liver failed.  she is currently waiting on a transplant list.  it really doesn't look as though she will make it, but there is hope. 

lord, have mercy!

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Liver failure? In a 14 year old? Lord have mercy!

One of those awful situations made more so by the nature of the possible cure.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

well, she is now on life support.  they cannot find a donor from someone who has fallen asleep, so they are testing her family for possible donors.  they'll know in a few hours. 

I've asked my mother, if they cannot find donors in her family, I can be tested. 

please pray that God will help my mother to let me be tested.
