Update on Kini


Praise the Lord! Below is Kini’s Discharge report. She is doing great. She is so much more alive and active now! The picture of her and her sister is Beautiful! It was taken after she returned home from India. Kini is actually older than her sister is but due to her condition she is smaller. We just praise the Lord what he has done in Kini’s life and her family. Kini’s Dad, who was with her in India, life has changed. Thank you for all your prayers! She may still need another operation in 2 to 3 years for her heart.
