Here are a few of the faces and stories of patients on surgical ward:
Paru is a young man in his twenties. While chopping down a tree, the tree trunk fell on him and broke his back. He is now paralyzed from the waist down. Permanent disabilities are very difficult to manage in a place where most people walk a dirt mountain path to get to their homes, where gardening is the main source of income, and where very few services exist. Thankfully, he was able to get a wheelchair sized for him at the local catholic health center. Please pray for him and his family during this very difficult lifestyle transition. Pray that they might find hope and strength in God in this time of struggle and doubt.
I wish I could share the stories of each of the 28 patients currently admitted to the surgical ward with abdominal illnesses, fractured bones, bone infections, healing wounds, etc. Please continue to pray for our patients’ physical healing and spiritual restoration as they hear the word of God daily on the wards. Thank you for your faithful prayers.
