Incident With Men's Ministry

Hello. I was preaching at the village with the men this past Monday. There is a man named Esteban that comes to the meetings and he knows a lot about the Bible and goes to the church. A very knowledgable man on the Bible and the truth. But he is a little slow. This past February one of the men in the village shot him under his jaw upperwards toward the top of his head, but the bullet travled through his jaw and then went out behind his ear instead of going into his head. And he lived and only has scars from getting shot. We took him to another town to live with his sister then, but since then someone else has shot and killed that man so he came back to live with his grandmother. But he had missed the men's Bible study the week before, and I thought that was weird b/c he always makes it to the meetings. He came this time and told me before we got started that he was not doing good. He has to take medicine for seizures and had ran out of his medicine. He told me that was the reason he didnt come to the meeting the week before b/c he is having seizures three or four times a day. And right after he told me this he had two seizures within 30 minutes at the Bible study. He got embarrassed and tried to leave but he couldnt walk. So Chayo and I took him in my car to his house. I have since then been trying to find his medicine, but I have to have a presciption to get it for him. I felt so hopeless and bad for him. He came all the way down the mountain knowing that he was going to have more seizures and could have hurt himself had he been walking or something just to ask if I could help him get some medicine. So pray that we will be able to get something done fast!! There are also two other people in the village that has the same problem and suffering the same way. So please pray for us to be diligent in getting them help and successful. God bless.
