Beautiful stories from Mercy Ships

20 02 2008

God has blessed our efforts, and a village in Sierra Leone is getting fresh, safe water to drink, along with assistance in setting up the basic public sanitation we take for granted. Mercy Ships also provides the local people with the training and skills they need to maintain their new sanitation and water.

“I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink.” Matthew 25

Well, here are two more wonderful stories from Mercy Ships. Click on the links to see the pictures and read the full stories:

A Family Calls Out to God: When local doctors said they could do nothing for 18-month-old Cyrus, his parents cried out to God for a surgeon who could remove the tumor protruding from the infant’s neck. …. Their prayers were answered with news that a Mercy Ship was coming to Liberia. …. Once unable to even hold up his head, Cyrus now moves freely as he scrambles around on the floor of a hospital playroom, collecting bricks to build a tower. …. As his mother considers the answer to her prayers, she exclaims simply: “Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!”

My Son Has Life!: Finella recalls the reaction she faced after the birth of her son, Tamba, whose forehead was disfigured by a large tumor. “Throw the child away,” was the painful advice Finella received. Unwilling to abandon their suffering baby, Finella and her husband, Ishaka, took him from their village in Sierra Leone to Freetown, the capital. They spent their savings on useless medicines. …. Dr. Sandra Lako at the New Steps Centre, a Mercy Ships clinic in Freetown, helped them get to the Africa Mercy docked in Liberia, nearly 250 miles away, where surgeons saved the boy’s life. …. “I just cannot say thank you enough,” [Tamba’s father] says of Mercy Ships. “Financially I lost everything, but now my son has life.”

if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
