Unexpected Deliverance

Pablo* from Venezuela had a fast-growing ulcer on his right foot, but he could not afford the medications to treat it. Instead, he was trying to raise funds to have a private doctor amputate his entire leg.

Maria* in Mexico had stopped taking her diabetes medication two years before when she could no longer afford it. Severely emaciated, thirsty, hungry, and alone, she tried the only thing she could: she ventured to a medical outreach, begging for help.

Pablo and Maria were hundreds of miles apart, but when they showed up at the free medical clinics and asked for help, the exact medicine they needed was there, ready for them.

Pablo received free medicines from Blessings International via South Tulsa Baptist Church’s outreach, and not only was his leg saved, but he continues to receive treatment for other health concerns.

Maria was given the medicine, food, and care she needed, and the Rotary Club of Oak Ridge, Tennessee helped her get to a local doctor for long-term care. Beyond grateful, she told the team that they had been sent by God to help her.
