Well, F. didn’t actually grow a foot, but she got a new foot last week.
F. has 2 leg prostheses, and in this hilly country prostheses break often. She has been telling me for a while that her prosthetic foot was broken, but it looked worse than I expected.
So I took her, and her baby to the orthopedic workshop at the nearby District Hospital and got her a lovely new foot. Being a single mother is not easy, but hopefully it will be a little easier now, with a new foot. She actually needed 2 new feet, and she received the second one yesterday. Many thanks to her sponsor who provided the means for her feet!
I was struck by the ingenuity of the physical therapist, P., who runs the orthopedic workshop. He is handicapped himself, so he takes extra special pride in his work. I was so impressed that I ordered a foot for another young woman, B., who also needed a new foot. She was quite overcome, and sent me this series of texts:
B. doesn’t have a sponsor, so her sponsorship comes out of our general ministry fund. Thanks to all who make this possible!
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7
