Restoring an evangelist to service in Kenya
I get so excited meeting people who have been helped by the Critical Medical Needs Fund! And on my recent trip to Kenya, I was blessed to meet my friend Alice Nakhumicha.
Alice has podiconiosis (also known as mossy feet), a disease of the lymph vessels of the lower extremities that is caused by long exposure to irritant soils, and is characterized by prominent swelling of the lower extremities. Untreated, it leads to disfigurement and disability.
Alice receives treatment for her feet every week and they are getting better. She told me they at one time were too heavy to lift, preventing her from going anywhere. Now the swelling is down and her feet seem to weigh less every day, so she is once again on the move sharing Christ! She was given new socks and is now waiting for new, custom-made shoes.
I could see Alice’s face radiate her love for the Lord as we talked. She loves telling others about her Lord Jesus. In the moments that followed I was reminded of the words of Romans 10:15 that say “How lovely are the feet of those who bring good news,” and I told her so. I then told her that those words spoke of her, despite the current appearance of her physical feet. She smiled again.
Alice and so many others with medical needs are helped by your generous donations to the Critical Medical Needs Fund, and on their behalf I say, “Thank you!”
May God bless you,
Director, Critical Medical Needs Fund
