Just when you think you have a problem, you realize that, there’s definitely bigger problems out there.  On Sunday morning Susan Black was shot.  The Blacks were on the road from Tuum back to Maralal, having attended the first Christian wedding in Tuum, when they were attacked by bandits on the road.  The bandits shot at the Black’s Land Rover trying to hit Ken and stop the car so they could rob everyone in it.  They didn’t hit Ken but did hit Susan.  Here’s the latest update from Marv Smith, the Eastern Region director:

“I just received an update this evening, Monday, at 6:30 pm local time.  Susan Black remains in intensive care at AIC Kijabe Hospital today.  On Sunday morning she received a very serious bullet wound to the thigh and femur.  Monday night an initial surgical procedure was done to clean the wound and begin repair of the damaged area.  The next 48 hours will be critical in terms of seeing how the healing process is going.  Please PRAY for Susan’s healing and for wisdom as the doctors treat her.

This was a traumatic event for Ken and Susan and their two boys, Robert and Joseph.  Ken and the boys are doing fairly well today, but continue to pray for their emotional recovery.  In addition to the Black family, there were also five Kenyans aboard the vehicle at the time of the attack—all need prayer.”

Please pray for Susan Black’s healing, and for Ken and their boys.
