Last day in Nicaragua


I look forward to coming home, but am sad to leave at the same time.  I have been here without an interpreter, and have done fine, although I understand less than half of what my friends here say.

Martin Matamoro rallied last night in the cool of the night, and is sitting in his house.  But he is unable to drink, and has not for the last day.  Today will be very hot, and will be a critical impact on the body.  Doctor Michael was surprised that he lived through the night, as he had many convulsions and was dillusional.  Thank you for your prayers, as he is not going through the agony that others have had in the past.   Vision Nicaragua will help the family with the funeral expenses, as they are unable.   I cried last night as I saw Martin´s 12 year old son embrace him in tears, knowing that he is dying.  It is very hard for a young family. 

Thank you for your prayers and support.  I will be back in Birmingham with my wife Sharon late tomorrow night, and then drive back to Asheville on Sunday.

God bless you all.

Doug Van Wirt
