Susan Ithungu Faces New Health Challenges

Susan Ithungu, who suffered permanent leg damage as a young girl after being locked in a small closet for becoming a Christian, is now facing a new health challenge. Having already endured multiple surgeries, Susan, now a teenager, recently developed an infection in her thigh that required another immediate surgery. She faces a long recovery and possibly further surgery, and she will also be missing more school. Pray for Susan’s healing and encouragement, for the doctors treating her and for those providing her post-operative care.
