Dr. Johnstone said he would be able to do the surgery -
even though it would be a long recovery process. On Sept 6th,
Dr. J operated on both legs, at the SIM Galmi Hospital a 6 hour
bus ride from Niamey. He repaired the broken leg and remove part
of the other hip joint. There is still a month more of recovery
including antibiotics for the infection and physical therapy
to learn to walk again.
is now out of the hospital and back in the village recovering.
Hopefully this next week he can have his external brace removed
and begin putting weight on his leg as he continues with antibiotics.
Pray for his family as they have been a part of a miracle,
but havent attributed these events to God at work, just
fate. We were able to give a clear presentation of
the gospel to Chibou (Shy boo), Adamou's older brother, explaining
that the timing and arrival of a specialist surgeon from the
US-was of God. We encouraged him and his family to consider having
a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. Pray that the
seeds planted would take root and grow, for God's honor and glory.
