World Leprosy Day

Today is World Leprosy Day – Let us stop and remember to pray for those who suffer the horrendous effects of leprosy.  We know so little of this disease in our part of the world, but in Korah it is a daily reality for many, not just those who suffer personally, but also for their children and families who are ostracized and rejected because of this disease.
 Just this week, before leaving Ethiopia, I enjoyed  a precious coffee celebration with the ‘Elders’ (elderly lepers)  in Korah and am humbled by their love and prayers for both me and my family.  I am truly blessed and so thankful to be a part of their lives.  God is good!

When spending time with the Elders it is so very apparent that they are all so thankful for everyone who has supported the Hope for Korah Elders’ Home this past year.   They love their new home and the security and hope it brings them. They now have clean beds, three

meals a day and they praise God for the daily care and support they receive.   They know they are loved – and it shines from their faces! 
The Elders Home is partially funded for 2013 and we continue to pray, trusting God will provide what is needed for the remainder of this year.   If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, please contact Eve  at
