Photo taken today afternoon, Sunday 10 April 2011 at Sabah Medical Centre, Kota Kinabalu, the best specialist hospital in Sabah. His kind eyes and heart convey his thanks + best wishes to all DBCH friends & viewers !

Brother Ben, Dutch, patron of DBCH orphanage (already 55 years in Bundu Tuhan, Kundasang preaching/following God's truth and way) has been in Sabah Medical Centre for treatment since 8 weeks back. He was bitten by a small insect in the evening in his place of residence in Bundu Tuhan, Kundasang. He didn't know what bit him (doctors or specialists also don't know what bit him despite various investigations). The point of the bite is near the elbow joint of his right arm .. Swollen (due to toxins or poison of the bite + painful first + arm paralysed) to twice the size in the inflicted arm (now, it has returned to normal size + right arm, hand & fingers can move well) .. 3 specialists have seen him .. Much medical treatment already done, including operations, cleansing, bandaging etc .. He is in recovery or healing stage (progressing OK now). He thinks he shall stay there for another 2 weeks before discharge.

Except for the bandaged arm, otherwise, he is very OK. He can walk around, does sms with his handphone + see visitors + speaking and joking as usual .. Priests, Brothers, Sisters, faithfuls, DBCH kids, friends etc come to visit him .. His mind and memory is still alert and sharp .. His heart and hearing is very ok .. He is still very strong & healthy despite the infected arm.

Comment from Mr S.P. Lo on this photo of Brother Ben: He is looking comparatively young & kind at heart (he is in his early 80s in age) .. full of inner peace, insight & connection .. speaking (Br. Ben can speak the native Dunsun tongue, national language in Bahasia Malaysia, English, Dutch, Latin + some Hakka Chinese dialect) and acting/behaving like he was 2 to 5 yrs ago !

17 May 2011 .. S.P. Lo learnt that Brother Ben spent the Easter
holiday in his village of residence in Bundu Tuhan, Kundasang. He
is now back to Sabah Medical Centre for some kind of skin transplant.
