We have experienced this faithful truth throughout our lives, but, in especially fresh and surprising ways during these nine months in Malawi — “with God all things are possible” Matthew 19:26.
While Deb readily admits that she is not a good writer, as nurses’ notes in patients’ charts do not require correct grammar or punctuation, Deb wrote and submitted a Grant Proposal to Samaritan’s Purse three months ago for the Palliative Care Department of Nkhoma Mission Hospital. This just in: $11,000 from Samaritan’s Purse was deposited into the Hospital’s Palliative Care Department this afternoon!
Wheelchairs are worth their weight in gold in Malawi, but this money will provide money for their backlog of wheelchairs necessary for clients in remote villages, which is where the Palliative Care Interdisciplinary teams travel to each Tuesday and Thursday. In addition, the Palliative Care team take with them emergency food and tarps for terribly leaky roofs made of tin or thatch.
One more more quick word about Samaritan’s Purse. We have seen S’s Purse provide generous funding for doctors and nurses to fly in from around the world during the COVID and Cholera epidemics. They have also provided funding for nurses and doctors from the United States, Netherlands, Germany and other nations from around the world. I just got off the phone with Samaritan’s Purse, headquartered in North Carolina, thanking them for the extraordinary mission giving and support they have provided to Nkhoma Mission that we have witnessed with our own eyes and ears. With no doubt in my mind, I can say they extend the extravagant healing mercies and loving grace of Jesus Christ in their service to God’s Beloved here in Malawi.
Thanks be to God!
