A Place of Rejects Becomes a “Blessed Camp”

How many young, newly married couples do you know who would give up the comfort of their lives and move from a big city and their high-paying jobs to serve others in a small, coastal town? This month I met with just such a couple whose time is now spent selflessly serving a small community of patients diagnosed with a severe disease in Msambweni, Kenya.

A Divine Delivery

During a previous visit to a leprosy colony in Hyderabad, India, I had the pleasure of meeting a sweet-spirited woman who beseeched me to pray with her for the Lord to bless her with a child.

Our team fervently prayed with her and eagerly awaited to hear good news the following year.

Wedding Bells Ring!

I always love visiting the children each time I travel to India! As I look into their faces—each one sponsored so they can attend a private Christian school because, as the offspring of parents with leprosy, they are ostracized at public schools—I'm filled with joy knowing that we are giving them a future they would otherwise never know.

A Warm Celebration!

Recently Pastor Paul Fang and his wife, Lisa, celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary in the same way they began both their courtship and their marriage: by sharing it with the leprosy-afflicted patients who reside at East Gate Leprosy Colony. That's because they've come to love these saints as members of their own extended family, not clients of their "ministry" or "job."
