Sick and suffering people all over the world desperately need your generosity—but they also need your prayers. Take a moment to lift them up, and pray they receive effective medical education.
And please, pray specifically for Sima.
Not long ago, friends like you helped fund a health screening program that diagnosed her with diabetes and taught her how to manage it. Your gifts also supplied her with medication. The wife and mother said the screening saved her life.
But then, she got contradicting information.
She visited a local doctor who checked her blood sugar, reported that it was normal, and told Sima she didn’t really have diabetes. The medicine was working, but because of the confusion, the woman stopped letting BGR partners check her blood sugar or give her medicine.
Without proper treatment, Sima’s disease will only progress. Ask God to change her heart and help her realize her need. And pray other ill people—from Latin America to Southeast Asia—will receive the knowledge they need to lead healthier lives.
