I just returned from seeing Wendy & Offy as they are heading for Huehuetenango, which is home for them.
In my last update about them two weeks ago I said that Offy had recently had an MRI and that the doctors wanted to perform another biopsy after Semana Santa.
Last week they performed the biopsy and, thanks be to God, she did not have any complications like the previous time.
Although we already knew that the tumor in her brain was growing, now it is confirmed.
It has grown over 3 cm since the last check.

The doctors have now said that there will be no more chemo therapy, and the only treatment now will be medication for pain and to hopefully lessen convulsions.
We have committed Offy to the Lord, and she is completely in His hands.
They will return to the capital every 10 days to two weeks to get more medicine and for the doctors to see her. But other than that the plan now is for her to be mainly at home in Huehuetenango.
Please pray that she would not have pain and that she would be content at home with family.
Pray mucho for Wendy, as you can imagine how difficult it would be for a mom to watch her only child go through this.
We know Offy is the Lord's having accepted Him as her Savior 8 months ago, and she is ready for what is ahead, but how hard for Wendy, the helpless feeling of watching one you love as they are dying.
Pray for us also as we try to be a comfort for Wendy and Offy.
