Ever think about what it would be like to have a family member sick and not able to be treated because there wasn't any money? I always think that would have to be one of the hardest things that could happen!
Neva, who works for me, found out last night that her mom is really sick. (These are her parents at the right, still quite young!) They had taken her to the hospital with severe pain on Monday, but when the doctor said she needed to be admitted they went home becuase they couldn't pay for it. Today they headed back to the hospital to see if anything could be done. A cousin texted Neva by cell phone, but she had no way to contact her parents.
We gave Neva what we could and put her on a bus to see her mom. I was blessed when I dropped her off at the bus station and saw her get on van that was ready to leave! She texted this afternoon to say that she is at the hospital and her mom is really sick. The money we sent isn't enough for all that needs done. At this point it sounds like an acute kidney infection, or something similar.
Pray with us for Ming. Tomorrow we'll see how we can help some more!
