Prayer Requests from Dr. William Kim, Indonesia

Letter #1 May 13, 2017

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. 

And the doctor found a stone from my kidney at the same hospital. It will be treated after healing the thighbone. 

But I do not see this problem from a human point of view but God's point of view. Thanks to this hospital treatment, my diabetic complication on my digestive organs has been very improved. The glucose level has been dramatically dropped. And I am taking a good rest from heavy works and high stress. In this way, I may be wrapping up the Cikarang ministry and teaching Korean job here. Please pray for my BSD UBF ministry that will newly start from this July. For a while I may not be able to write the sunday message. Please pray for me to resume all things I have to do by the grace of God.

The orthopedic doctor just showed the result of the 3D CT scan. Within 7-14 days, granulation tissue should be formed between the fragments. Unfortunately, after waiting 14 days, the new bone bonding is not showing based on CT scan results. So, the doctor recommends a surgery as soon as possible. In this case, it would be better to take the surgery in Korea. So I am planning to go to Korea as soon as possible.  

Right now M. Marie is looking for a suitable hospital in Korea. The problem is that I cannot stand, walk or move due to the broken hip bone. The doctor even advises me not to sit up. I'm wondering how I can go to Korea by airplane. It will be a big job. Please pray for me. Thank you. God may be with us.

I am now hospitalized at Ramsay Sime Darby Health Care Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Here the first opinion of the orthopedist is that the femoral neck has been completely broken into two pieces. They are just put together. And because the bone has been for 2 weeks doing nothing. It might be dead with low level of blood supply. So this morning  I took MRI and I am waiting for the results. And accordingly the treatment will be arranged later on.

If the tissue of the bone is still alive, a couple of iron bars will be screwed up on the femoral neck.

Thank you so much for your prayer and care for me far away from Chicago.

I feel supported with so many praying and encouraging coworkers when I am sick beginning with you.Thanks to all the prayer supports, I have been fast recovered. To me, removing a couple of stones seems a small matter since I could walk again. Hallelujah!

God has made me walk again!. My life is in the Lord. That is good thing. Even though my right joint has artificial joint and the upper joint has two iron pins, my flesh body has been weakened, but my spirituality has been stronger and greater. It is true, when I am weak I can be strong. I am closer to my God day by day. Prayer and praise never leave my mouth everyday and every moment. Please keep praying for me to win this spiritual battle for the glory of God. Thank you again for your encouragement. God may use UBF for his name's sake.
