As many of you know, J-Nathan who is the son of Givemore and Sylvia Nyakambiri, was diagnosed with leukemia in February 2018 when he was 5 years old and began chemotherapy treatments in Malawi right away. He had not been feeling well for quite some time prior to the diagnosis but nonetheless it was quite a shock for Givemore and Sylvia. J-Nathan just turned 6 on December 1.
Below is an update that Givemore just wrote to keep us informed of J-Nathan’s progress. Please continue to pray for the whole family.
“J-Nathan Boyd is on his maintenance cycle 2 which is going on well. Praise be to God. He is getting tired of shots and chemotherapy. His immunity frequently drops to 0.250 which is very dangerous. Because of that he sometimes misses school. But the Lord is faithful. He is seeing us and the boy through. JB (as he is affectionately called) has many wishes and desires that as parents we try by all means to fulfill but some are beyond our reach.
“We thank God for keeping us and the whole family strong. The boy celebrated his 6th birthday with friends around him. We believe and trust God for complete healing.
“May you please pray that his body will be able to fight against opportunistic infections and reactions to one of the drugs he is getting. Pray that his immunity will not drop to below normal and that he adjusts well to school life. He is lagging behind in his school work but we are hopeful that he will be able to adjust and be able to learn.
“Continue trusting for God’s healing with us. HERE is a link to a video that shows the hospital where J-Nathan goes for treatment.
“We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.”
