I received this email from Helen's sister in England. Helen has been given the all clear to come home, and the hospital are making travel arrangements. She is still in need of much prayer, as South Africa to Northern Ireland is long distance to travel, especially for someone in Helen's condition. Thank you for all your prayers.
2nd Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
I spoke to mum on Monday and Helen was meant to be coming home on Tuesday but had not had the all clear from the doctors in Jo'burg. She had a scan on Tuesday and has been pronounced fit to fly so they are waiting to get her on a flight. Mum thinks it will be this week. They are flying Joburg to Frankfurt, Frankfurt to Dublin and then ambulance up from Dublin to hospital in Belfast, probably either the City or the Ulster. They have to remove 7 rows of seats on the plane to get the stretcher in which is why they have to come back by such a strange route. It will be mum, Helen and 2 nurses making the trip. Mum said she will be in touch when they get back to NI so you should hear something very soon.
Thanks for all your help and prayers
