Dear and Respected Brethren,
The following lines are the copy of the mail sent by our member Mr. Mathew
Varghese (Dubai) to Mr. Mathew, whose son is a patient of Leukemia and an
appeal for and on his behalf was placed in our digest No-991. This is just
for the information of all our readers.
Dear Mr. Mathew,
I have read about your son Mervin in IOIF Digest.# 991. First of all let me
pray to the one and only Savior our Father who is in heaven the almighty
LORD JESUS CHIRST to extend his healing hand on to your son and completely
heal him from this dreaded disease.

him is the question? The lord blessed you by giving this child as your son
and he gave this disease as well. There is definitely some purpose behind
this. When our lord was crucified you can imagine the awful pain he has gone
through. Compared to the pain and agony our Savior has gone through, the
pain we see in real life is far less. But one thing is that, we believers of
Lord Jesus Christ who are suffering in this world with some pain or the
other are really blessed, we are getting an opportunity to know what
suffering and pain is.
My son Jacob Varghese Mathew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
in September 2002. We have and are going through the same level of Pain and
Agony that you are going through right now. But I never missed a minute or a
second in my life thanking the almighty father for all the blessings he has
showered upon my family and me. Jacob is currently being treated in a
hospital called Al Tawam in Al-Ain, Abu Dhabi. I fully trust my lord, he
gave Jacob and he gave this disease and he will cure it. All I need to do is
to trust in him and pray for his recovery. I am very religiously doing it.
I tried to call you today at home, I think you are at work. I will call you
