Ruben's eye surgery
“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
Ruben is the passionate youth pastor of our church in La Biznaga. He also shares the love of Christ with many children via our Sharing Hope Child Sponsorship program. His dedication and joy to our youth is contagious.
Mid November Ruben started having trouble seeing. Due to cataracts his eyesight was becoming progressively worse. Thankfully WWHO has an emergency medical fund in place for members of it's ministry. However, due to a recent surgery, WWHO only had enough to cover one eye.
Due to the need to pay for medical services upfront in Mexico, Ruben would not be able to receive the needed surgery until all funds were raised. We reached out to a few WWHO supporters via email asking for prayers and donations. Before the day even ended the surgery was covered in full. Donations continued to come in and not only was one eye covered, but both! God provided in a huge way, allowing WWHO to save what is in our medical emergency fund and help Ruben!
“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35
Often people don't think a few dollars can go far, that one person can't make a difference. The truth is, when we obey God and give what is asked, big things happen. Not only did the wonderful donations help Ruben, they help all the little children he works with. Those simple donations will have a HUGE impact.
With Ruben healthy, the gospel will continue to be shared with the youth of La Biznaga. We want to thank all of you who donated. We also ask that you would continue to pray for a full recovery for Ruben. God Bless
