In all this, we have been grateful for the speed at which Lorelei is getting attention, and the way God has orchestrated specialists, who are only at SickKids once a month, to be there when Lorelei needed to see them.
Lorelei is not in any pain. One of her eyes is working fine, which allows her to do all she wants to do.
There is swelling within the affected eye, causing it to not work (Lorelei sees a large, dark circle in the centre of her vision when using only the affected eye).
The medical team is trying to diagnose what is causing the swelling.
While they are running tests and ruling out possibilities, they are treating her as if it is an infection.

Why we do what we do
God’s Word has many themes running through its pages. God’s plan of redemption is an important one.
In God’s plan of redemption, we find that the focus is on “unreached people groups”.
From Genesis 12:3 when God promises to Abram that through him all the families [ethnic groups] would be blessed, to the glimpse of the finish line we find in Revelation 5:9 and 7:9 of every “tribe, tongue and nation [ethnos]” worshipping around the throne, we see God on mission.
The Great Commission as articulated in Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations [ethnos]” is another clear example of God’s determination to see believers from every ethnos in heaven.
It is for this cause that we are investing our lives—we want to see a thriving church for every people/ethnos.
To many, the funding model of Ethnos Canada is unique. We look to the Lord to provide for our financial needs through family, friends and churches.
Ethnos Canada does not fund our ministry. Both our personal wages and our ministry expenses (eg. travel for meetings) are paid out of donations designated for our ministry.
100% of gifts designated for our ministry are used for our ministry.
