    “The human being has a deep-rooted tendency to “think only of self”, to regard one’s own person as the centre of interest and to see oneself as the standard against which to gauge everything. One who chooses to follow Christ, on the other hand, avoids being wrapped up in oneself and does not evaluate things according to self interest.”

We will continue to pray for her and others in her situation as well.
