Paul and Elizabeth Johnson – Calvary Chapel Kigali, Rwanda

Paul has been diagnosed with COVID19.

He’s on meds and his wife Elizabeth doesn’t have COVID19, but they suspected that she had it the last two weeks as she was very sick, but yesterday passed the COVID19 Rapid Test ok with no infection.

Paul is very tired and has extremely annoying headaches and fatigue. His body temp was 82.5 but now about 37.5.

  • Thank God for the work He’s been doing in spite of Covid19.
  • Three days ago, I lost a close uncle, but got to share the Gospel with Him before he died.

Prayer:

  • Increased Covid testing, but not treatment. Referring Covid positives to the Kampala hospital.
  • Hospitals need oxygen. Without it people are dying.
