A Leg for Matthew

If you ever wonder how your financial support of BKM makes a difference, then I hope this story from Uganda will encourage you. Dr. Brenda Kowalske wanted to make a need known on social media. When I asked about it, she told me about a 12-year-old boy named Matthew who had cancer. Surgery amputating his leg had stopped the cancer from spreading and saved his life. Now, Helping Hands needed $600.00 to buy him a prosthetic leg.

The Holy Spirit immediately prompted me to reply, “BKM would love to provide for that leg.” Tears filled her eyes, as well as mine. Because many of you support BKM on a monthly or annual basis, I knew I could give without hesitation. As we thanked God for His provision, I was overwhelmed with joy at the thought of your generosity. Thank you for helping us go to the helpless and hurting around the world. You made it possible to share the Gospel in Uganda, and even by a leg for Matthew.
