I would like to inform you that we are in a health emergency.  Mr. Joseph Francis National Director CLAAS is having appendix problem since last evening. He was admitted at Fatima Memorial Hospital Lahore at 08:00 pm by the doctors to operate the appendix problem. Doctors have informed to CLAAS team, As Mr. Francis have a severe cheat infection, diabetics and Blood pressure therefore the operation can create some complications. Doctors want to dissolve the appendix problem through medical treatment. In the morning at about 11:30 a.m doctors have city scanned of Mr. Francis and after the report they will decide either they can operate him while having cheat infection, diabetics and high blood pressure


Please be praying for his recovery and good heath to keep working for Pakistani depressed Christian community. "Due to thelack of sleep and being restless, he is becoming weaker and ill,"He is feeling alone after the death of his wife and the children are abroad, though CLAAS staff is with him and taking care of him always and especially in this situation when he is in the Hospital.


Please pray for him that may the "Lord our God ease his suffering, give him strength as he faces his battle and grant good health and long life to him.
