I was blessed this week to take a wheelchair to a lady in Cabañas. Many of you saw the photos on Facebook. But there is more to the story.....
Several months ago, the pastor that we work with in Cabañas asked if we could donate a wheelchair for a lady who had a brain tumor. He had heard of a lady who is 42 years old and they cannot operate on the tumor. A doctor came from the States and said it was not possible. So I began the search for a wheelchair.
But during the search, one day I was at Exodo and one of our graduates came for a visit. I asked her where she was living and working. She told me where she lived and that she was taking care of a lady who was ill.
Last week, I was able to take the wheelchair with me to Cabañas and after our reunion with the elderly, we went to deliver the chair. We drove down the dirt road till we came to the end and there was the house. The pastor and I lowered the chair from my truck and I told him that he better go first since they did not know me.
All of the sudden, I hear someone screaming my name....JANIS!!!!! I look around and there is Reina, our girl from Exodo. I screamed her name and ran to hug her. The people that were with me were trying to figure out what was going on and I explained to them that I knew her. She led us in and were able to pray with the lady. She was not able to speak but could listen. She cried tears when we told her the chair was for her, free of charge.
