We continue our daily visits with Lok, the Vietnamese man in a local hospital, who has HIV. He is actually doing a lot better, both physically and emotionally. The swelling in his feet has decreased, he is eating much better (tho' still complains of a sore stomach) and the infection in his throat has almost gone. Best of all, he is now keen to be prayed for on each visit, shutting his eyes and soaking in everything we ask the Lord to do on his behalf.
There are two other people in his room, a mum - perhaps in her late 40's - and a young guy. The young guy has his mum there constantly, caring for him. He is very thin and weak. HIV/AIDs is continuing to rapidly increase here - as in so many parts of the world.
Sue putting a variety of food together for Lok. We were giving him money for food each day, but with Khmer New Year upon us, the liklihood is that the food-stall people will not be around for a week.
