Leprosy Ministry

Leprosy. It is a word that holds a different meaning for different people. For most, it's the "unclean" disease of the Bible. For others, it's a modern-day curse that slowly destroys the bodies of its victims, as well as the futures of their families. That word represents the enduring stigma carried by leprosy communities—warning others that they are about to enter a "pariah" area.

The Ingredients for Success

I first met Boaz and Murali on my trip to India for the Leprosy Ministry in 2012. I had come to meet the students we had begun sponsoring for school the year before, and we were eager to start our first Vacation Bible School for about 100 children, some of whom were from a nearby orphanage. Boaz was one of the praise and worship leaders, playing some "mean" drums, and Murali was right at my side directing the activities for the rambunctious kids. We had a spirited time, and these two fine young men became my faithful program directors every year since, including last November.

An Unbroken Faith

A broken arm...for 3 years? I thought incredulously. I'd known Katun for almost 5 years—and even used pictures of her to describe life in the leprosy colonies of Hyderabad, India (there she is smiling in the Leprosy Ministry banner at top)—but never noticed her arm was broken! (She had a way of hiding it from visitors.)

Five Years of Loving

Last month in India I took part in a wonderful collaboration between Heaven's Family, Hope for Hansen's and Chamberlain College of Nurses—all for the purpose of pouring out God's love and compassion to leprosy victims in 20 colonies spread throughout Hyderabad and New Delhi, India.
