Yahaya's Story

 Yahaya at Home

Yahaya at Home

This is Yahaya.

He is 54 years old and lives in the village near Suubi.

Yayaha has suffered from Leprosy for many years. Due to the stigma of the disease, he has been unable to get steady work and is treated as an outcast. He has managed to build his house from various materials that he found in the village; but he is in desperate need, as he struggles to find food each day and has no money to pay for the medicine he needs.

After we learned of Yahaya's condition, we posted his story on FB and asked for prayer for the Lord to provide for his medical treatment.

God is SO faithful!  

Within just a few days after posting, a generous Donor contacted us and sent enough money to provide for Yahaya's treatment, new clothes, some food, his transport to the medical facility and several months worth of the medication he will need.

It was quite a journey to get to the facility, but Yahaya had been praying for this opportunity for quite a while and was happy to finally be there and receive the treatment he desperately needed.

Praise God for His provision!

After several weeks of treatment, we were called and told that Yahaya was ready to be brought back to the village.

He was given medication and special sandals, along with instructions on how to care for his hands and feet to minimize the symptoms of his leprosy.

He was extremely happy to get the treatment he needed so badly.  Notice the smile on his face in the picture above!  His hope has been restored!

I was able to see Yahaya at Church after he returned to the village.  He expressed his thankfulness over and over again and praised God for His provision.

What a testimony of God's faithfulness!  And how beautiful it is to see a life changed by the faithfulness and generosity of God's people!

As Believers, we ARE the hands and feet of Jesus.  God is faithful to use us when we are faithful to answer His call.  Yayaha's hope is restored because someone said YES to the call to help him.

Just say "Yes!", God WILL do the rest!
