Why Didn't God Heal Nabeel Qureshi?

While it seems insensitive to ask this while we grieve, people are wondering why didn't God heal Nabeel.

As I look around and see Christian schools with enrollment declines of 10 and 20 percent, or recruiting students overseas and gouging their tuition, or the ultimate failure closing their doors, I am saddened!
