It’s easy for us to take what we have for granted. Such as legs. How different our life would be if we were unable to get around on our own.
As you will see in the story below as shared by an SGA-supported pastor, Mzia is homebound and bedridden since her legs had to be amputated a few years ago. With no family nearby and only some kind neighbors taking care of her, she was thrilled that she received a time of fellowship and conversation through servants of SGA-sponsored Compassion Ministry.God loves “unfortunate” people, so please pray for Mzia and others like her who need His saving grace.
Greetings dear brothers and sisters, dear friends. Praise the Lord for giving responsibility to the ministry in spreading His Word. We would like to share some news from last week’s ministry. Our missionary work includes visiting the destitute, the disabled people and the survivors of the disasters. Owing to the Compassion Ministry, we are able to help these people. This time we also selected the most special families. They all were surprised that someone was taking care of them. After the first meeting, we start preaching the Gospel of Christ. The people perceive it differently, but we are glad that we are able to witness, and often times they ask us to come visit them again. Through visiting these families last year, several people came to the church.
I want to share briefly about one woman whose story impressed us. Her name is Mzia. She lives alone in the village. She has no husband. Her two adult children live far from her. Several years ago, her legs were amputated and now she is bedridden. Her children come to visit her several times a year, while the rest of the time she is alone, and her neighbors help her. She was so delighted when we visited and talked to her. Mzia thanked God for us. We promised to visit her more often and our church is praying for her. Thanks to such visits, we find out how many unfortunate people live around us.
