For well over a decade Nicole has been dedicated to helping others in Madagascar, Africa. Now she needs our help. She is facing an undiagnosed medical condition that is causing her to have speech and motor control issues as well as a host of other challenges. The medical care she can get in Madagascar is not sufficient and she needs to be brought to the US for medical attention. This will be an expensive endeavor with travel for herself and her husband Narindra, as well as the mounting medical costs.

This is where you come in. Please take a moment to donate, but don’t stop there. Share this need with others. We can’t bring this dedicated missionary back to the US to get healthy without your help. Share with your church, your pastor your friends.

To see a bit of Nicole’s journey please visit her blog: https://nicolerauch.blogspot.com/?fbclid=IwAR0vKZZE5fznTV4isdnKNdpG-A23YGc_yKWCSW7iOlAOfbB_mhr1eM1Dvu0

Thank you for your love, prayers and support.

Blessings,

Nicole's Family and Friends

*Special thank you to Heather Hungate for creating this plum fund.

Thank you for your prayers and support. She is in California. She has seen Doctors and received over 24 hours of tests and observation. There is follow up scheduled and lots of rest has been prescribed by doctors. Nicole and Narindra are deeply appreciative of the love, support and prayers that have brought her home to the care she needed. Thank you for respecting her time of healing and rest by directing all of your questions to Deanna, Shannon, Bethany, Ron or Myself.

part 2 from Nicole, As soon as I am up for visitors we will let you know where I am and what is the best way to contact me. When I am able I will help with updates. I am walking on my own, and will test out a small travel in the car today to see how my senses are doing with light, sound, traffic etc... Please continue to pray, for myself and my husband, Narindra has been such a great strength but taken on loads of stress in the process. If you feel led to help in any way my family is raising money to help us see Dr's as soon as we get to America to make sure we know what happened and see what are the next steps in treatment.

Part 1-A note from the Patient, me: Today is Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 9:45 am. I have been resting as much as possible, still taking 4 hours naps, and resting my brain. My friend and nurse, Kim Richard arrived yesterday afternoon and has already been such a massive help in packing up some of our home and getting Narindra and I ready to travel for 2 days. I am still very overwhelmed and unable to respond to all personal requests. Please contact my family directly if you want updates on my condition - answering the same questions over and over makes me very tired. I do sometimes but please understand that my vision is not top notch right now making time on electronics hard for me. I am generally in great spirits and love to talk, upsetting to my husband for now as he is still very afraid something will happen again. Contact Shannon Guidi, Bethany Tuttle, Bradley Rauch, Laura Rauch, Deanna Holder Scott, Petrea Martin-Rauch.

Update January 11. Kim is at least half way to Madagascar arriving Jan 12 at 2pm. We are so relieved that she will be there with Nicole and Narindra as they get things organized to leave. Nicole is still very tired. The dizziness seems to be getting better but she still seems to be quickly overwhelmed and her body wants to go to sleep. She is in good spirits and is hope-full for more answers when she arrives. Of course she is scared and worried but happy to be coming home. Her words are mostly coming back and she is able to stand for short periods. The plan when they arrive is to of course get her to a hospital to get checked out. I know everyone has a lot of questions like how long will she be here, what hospital etc. We don’t have a lot of answers at this point and the focus now is getting her home and evaluated. Nicole needs a lot of love and support right now. Her tank is on empty and it needs to be filled back up. She needs to rest. We all thank you so much for all of the kind wor

I would also like to add that coming back to a land of plenty can be difficult, there is an adjustment period needed to acclimate. We appreciate you all so much. We will work with everyone in order to get a visit when she is ready.. Thanks so much for understanding.

Update for January 9th. My sisters friend/nurse Kim is flying out tomorrow to bring her home. She will fly home with my sister next week. Thank you all all for your continued prayers and support. We are so humbled and grateful for everything that everyone is doing. Thank you so much.
