A Miracle of God
Along with the Zika virus, Byron had contracted Guillain-Barré syndrome — a rare neurological disorder that can lead to paralysis.
With World Vision’s help, he was admitted to the hospital for treatment of his paralysis and placed on a respirator to help him breathe. A month later, he was discharged from the hospital and taken home.
But recovery has not been fast. After starting to walk in late March, he can now run and ride a bike. But the left side of his face is still paralyzed. “My grandson’s recovery is a miracle of God,” says Brígido.
Pray for those affected by the Zika virus: Loving Father, we pray for communities affected by the Zika virus — for vulnerable families, especially pregnant mothers and unborn babies who are especially at risk. Protect and strengthen them, and give them courage. Bless the work of doctors and medical researchers who are trying to find answers and treatments that work for both Zika and other diseases.
