She didn’t have money to pay for the surgery; she didn’t even have money to travel to the hospital and find out why her broken finger had never healed.
That all changed when someone from the local education department contacted one of our partner programmes in China.
Our partner decided to make a difference. They paid for Ladha’s transport and surgery - but did not stop there!
Volunteers stayed with Ladha, talking to her and helping her, even helping to push her into the operating room. On the day of the operation, Ladha had no relatives with her but the volunteers were there to comfort her.
The Muslim doctor who operated on Ladha was confused by this and said:
“I have seen other volunteers too. But usually they just paid the bill, took pictures and left. Why do you accompany her all the time?”
“We are not normal volunteers," was the reply. "We are from the Christian church.”
There were three Muslim patients in Ladha’s room, and they too asked the volunteers why they came to help. They shared the love of Jesus with them, too.
From that day, the atmosphere in that room changed. People started to help Ladha.
Ladha has now been discharged from the hospital and is a happy, healthy young girl. Please pray that she will come to know and love Jesus for herself one day.
The love of Jesus changes things...
