Pursottam was driving his bus when he experienced a sudden, agonizing pain in his hand. The ache spread through his body and became so intense that he struggled to finish his route. When the pain did not relent, Pursottam spent his savings traveling to visit neurologists, but no doctor could provide a diagnosis. Meanwhile, Pursottam grew frightened and anxious about his ability to continue working. His prayers were answered the day he heard about the PWS&D-supported hospital in the remote Banke district in Nepal. There he was diagnosed with leprosy and given effective medicine. Today, Pursottam’s health has been restored. “I am so happy to see him smile again,” shares Pursottam’s brother. “We finally found relief here at the Banke Hospital.”
PWS&D responds to illness with care and courage
We Pray For
Heavenly Father, during this Lenten season nourish us with your word of Life and make us one with you in Love and Prayer. May we walk through this season intentionally, removing distractions that take our gaze away from your glory. May we quiet the noise that pulls us from adoration from you and may we see your goodness and glory in new ways throughout this season. We pray for those in need, especially for Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry, Aneila River- Watts, and the family of Rev. Thomas Kay. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen
