“I Feel Loved”

For impoverished patients, doctor visits are a reason to celebrate

Dear Family,

I have such a wonderful praise report to share with you from the Leprosy Ministry’s team in Goma, D.R. Congo, who are faithfully ministering to the leprosy patients living in the Mugunga 3 IDP Camp. This dedicated team of individuals pour out their lives sacrificially for the “least of these.”

Simeon Muhunga, a dear brother in Christ and partner of the Leprosy Ministry—native to D.R. Congo—writes of his recent visit to our team’s medical camp in Goma that cares for the leprosy afflicted:

The boy in the middle (below) is named Mwisha, and the smiling woman on his left is his wife, with his leprosy-affected mother on his right. He lives at the Leprosy Camp, but has never been affected, nor have his kids. Mwisha is taking a Nursing Science course at a nearby college so that he might in the future be of great help to the community. Our medical staff members always use him for follow up on the critical medical cases, and to let us know how they are improving afterward. We have named the Leprosy Camp “Naaman at Jordan River Center.”

Here are comments from another patient (pictured below) as she receives care from the medical team that you are faithfully supporting:

Why can I smile when the Lord moves brothers and sisters to come over (from Goma) for my rescue, so that I may move in spite of the terrible pains in all my body that keeps me sleepless at night? I am experiencing relief not only because of the medicine I hold in my hands, but because I feel loved and valued by our heavenly Father. God is good…Amen.

These are just two testimonies of how appreciated your generous gifts are—your love is medicine to suffering lives. My gratitude overflows, as always.

Together in Christ,

Carole Collins
Director, Leprosy Ministry
