Last Sunday, my family and mother went out for dinner with Bro Ann & family. Bro Ann wanted to bless us and mom with dinner at the clubhouse. Went there and as usual, the children are moving around the restoraunt while Engso May Lan ordered the dishes.
When the food arrived, the children helped themselves to the food. One of the food is the “tauhu” which was cooked with a certain kind of soysauce. When Engso May Lan tasted the tauhu, she immediately realised that the chef might have used the soysauce that contains one type of beans called fava beans. 3 of the children Jian Shen, Jian En and Florence are confirmed G6PD, having some kind of body deficiency. According to research, one benefit of having G6PD deficiency is that it confers a resistance to malaria. G6PD deficiency is also sometimes referred to as favism since some G6PD deficient individuals are also allergic to fava beans.
Unfortunately, all the three children had taken a sip of the tauhu sauce which contains the fava beans. This is very critical, as within 3 to 8 hours their blood cells will be diluted and can cause bloating, brain damage and in most cases death. Engso May Lan was very panic. As for me, I does not know what the whole G6PD deficiency problems so I was not worried at all. However, as Engso May Lan explained what had happened to her friend’s children who had G6PD, I was beginning to realise the grave situation that the 3 children are facing. I uttered a silent prayer for the 3 children.
We continued to have our dinner, realising that there is much that can be done humanly but to wait and see. Engso May Lan did check with the chef, and it was confirm that the soysauce contains fava beans. After dinner, we went back to Bro Ann’s house.
Upon reaching the house, I called the three children and told them that I want to pray for them. Though there is nothing that we can do humanly, there is still one thing that I can do… asking God to intervene in this matter. Praise God that my brother Ann and Engso May Lan did not object to it. Then I prayed for the children, surrendering them to God, asking God to intervene and protect them, I also bind the work of the enemy, bind the sauce from causing harm to the children’s bodies, taking authority by the promises of God’s word.
Thereafter, we rest for a while and then went to sleep. I surrender everything to God. I’ve done what He prompt me to do, it is all now up to God to do His mighty saving work. The dinner is at about 9.00pm, and by 12.00 midnight we will know what will happen to the children. I’m sure that Bro Ann and Engso May Lan are very worried about the three children but God showed His love and power that night. The children are alright and fine.
Woke up in the morning. Couldn’t really sleep because the room is really warm. Anyway, went down and asked the maid about the children. She told me that all of them are okay. Praise and ALL Glory be to God.
