Friends, I’m asking for your prayers. My mother’s little bro — my beloved uncle Murtaza — has Covid-19. He’s hospitalized in Belgium. Been intubated for several days and in grave condition now. Nurse says his blood oxygen level is improving ever-so-slightly, which suggests he’s still got some fight in him. May it be true. On behalf of my entire family, thank you for keeping Murtaza in your thoughts and hearts. God bless *all* those who are struggling to survive this cunning virus. ... See MoreSee Less
