I have an urgent prayer topic to share. Msn. Joshua (Byungju) Jin has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. He is still in the very early stages of diagnosis and no treatment plan has been made yet. The good new is that a CT scan did not find any evidence that the cancer had spread. Next week he should have another endoscopy with an ultrasound to determine more information about the tumor in the stomach. After that, I assume a treatment plan will be made.
We have several prayer topics for him and for his family.
My thighbone has been incompletely broken after I tripped over. There is a fracture on it so that I have been hospitalized since last monday night. Until new bone is filling up the gap of the opened top part of the thighbone, it will take 2 weeks at least. I am lying down on a bed and I am not supposed to sit by 90 degree. After 2 weeks, I have to move on a wheelchair for 2 months. So now everything has been stopped from my working school and the work of God.
In the grace of God, we, at Humber are struggling to fix our eyes on Jesus and live by faith. Without fixing our eyes, we find so many things which drag us down and lose the focus. But thank God who is with us and keep us safe.
This time, I'd like to share prayer topics for M. Timothy Park and his health condition.

M. Daniel Rhee is going to have heart surgery (coronary artery bypass grafting) in Korea this week. Please pray for him to receive the surgery well by faith in the Almighty God and to recover speedily from the surgery.

During our four year check-up, our pediatrician noticed his low iron level and prescribed iron for a month later follow up checkup. Yesterday was our follow up check up for his iron level. After his blood test our pediatrician still noticed a very low level of iron in his blood and contacted a specialist. Kosair Hospital (blood cancer specialist hospital for children) admitted us immediately after his blood test and diagnosed him with leukemia.
