Critical Medical Needs Fund

Special Issue: 2014 Fund Directors' Report

Patti Samuels, Critical Medical Needs Ministry

Larosa’s scars from the fire in her neighbor’s kitchen are healing and, in the arms of her mother, she’s able to smile again. Larosa endured many painful surgeries in a DR Congo hospital where she spent months recovering. She and her mom are grateful for the donors who prayed and gave!

Tin Suh was 43 years old and 9 months pregnant, and both she and her baby were in trouble. For some reason, her blood pressure was dangerously low, and her baby was positioned feet-first. But because of poverty, the safest alternative—a hospital birth—was out of the question. So Tin Suh and her husband, an indigenous missionary in Myanmar, prayed.

Untold numbers of the world’s poor suffer debilitating and life-threatening illnesses with no hope of medical care. They feel blessed if they can meet their family’s most basic needs of food, shelter and, for those a little more fortunate, an education for their children. Heaven’s Family’s Critical Medical Needs Fund exists for them.

I’m happy to report that in 2014 we served about 250 people in 10 countries. We paid, for example, a heart operation, the removal of a little boy’s diseased eye, the setting of a broken arm, and removal of a cataract.

We also helped Victor in Kenya, a victim of severe skin cancer on his chest. Untreated, it ultimately would have taken his life. But Victor could not afford any medical care. We paid for 6 months of treatments. Victor is now cancer free and back to work.

And in Myanmar, the miracle Tin Suh and Kenneth prayed for arrived. Thanks to gifts to our Critical Medical Needs Fund, Heaven’s Family sent $360 through a trusted partner. Tin Suh safely delivered her baby via a C-section. Baby Samuel is doing well.

In 2015 we intend to continue meeting critical medical needs, as well as funding two small medical clinics, one in Kenya operated by American missionaries, and the other by a Congolese doctor who serves rape victims and their children in war-torn DR Congo. We also hope to fund additional similar clinics as God provides. Thanks for caring!

Help meet critical medical needs of our spiritual family

Heaven's Family's Compassion Club

Jesus so clearly described His true followers in Matthew 25:31-46. They are “sheep,” whose love for Him is revealed by their sacrifices for the “least of these.” The “sheep” are contrasted with the “goats,” who may even call Him “Lord,” but who don’t really love Him, as revealed by their lack of compassion for those within whom He lives.

Jesus’ true sheep are born again and transformed by the Holy Spirit. They want to serve Jesus every moment of their lives. They are filled with His love. They’re not “Sunday Christians.”

Heaven’s Family’s Compassion Club is a wonderful means for Christ’s followers to demonstrate their love for Jesus every day through the very means He taught—by serving the “least of these.”
