Greetings and happy Friday Monday!

There is little I can add to Sulastri’s story so I’m going to let her tell it. Sulastri lives in one of the slums of Mataram, Indonesia:

Sulastri“I want to share about God’s love and how it’s been shown to me. I had accident and afterward a lingering pain has kept me from being able to walk. My life is full of struggle as a single-mother with a child that depends on me. Humanly, it is impossible for me to have a wheelchair—it is only by the grace of God that I have one. That day I was begging when one of the local pastors saw me and offered to give me a wheelchair, free of charge. I was speechless—I could not express my thanks to God for providing this for me. This wheelchair is His extraordinary gift I cannot stop thanking Him for what He has done. Now I can join our local community group and although I haven’t found work yet, the wheelchair completely relieves the pain in my leg. I want to thank the donor who has shown me this grace and compassion—for having empathy for a poor person like me. I pray that God will bless the person who made this possible for me.”

Sulastri prays for you to be blessed. A single-mother, living in a slum, and forced to beg to support her child prays that you would be blessed for giving her a wheelchair. That’s what your gift, the gift of a wheelchair, has meant in her life. Thank you for making this “extraordinary gift” possible.
