Trusting the Lord for continued healing


Through Samaritan Ministries I was able to have surgery on my little finger to repair a severed nerve along with physical therapy. I am so grateful for the Shares we received! Every expense was shared—what a blessing!
Along with our Needs being met financially, every single check came with encouraging words, Scripture, and/or prayers, which means so very much.
My finger is still healing. Nerve damage takes a long time to heal. But I am so grateful for the surgery and P.T. I received. Trusting the Lord for continued healing and restoration of my finger.

Thank you to everyone for prayed for recovery


We joined Samaritan Ministries in January 2015. In August of 2015, after a very stressful, fast-paced fundraising trip to the lower 48, I suffered a cardiac arrest and, thanks to God’s providing an alert son, a great EMT team, and excellent doctors and His sovereign protection over my life, I recovered with no side effects. Samaritan members shared all the medical expenses after self-pay discounts. The notes most sent were so encouraging and strengthened our faith during my recovery. Thank you to all who prayed for my recovery. God answered.
In 2019, a severe respiratory infection similar to COVID-19 sent my body into congestive heart failure. Thanks to God’s working through the prayers of His people and aggressive treatment by a heart failure clinic and 2 ablations to stop atrial fibrillation, I am well on the way to another full recovery. Thanks again to Samaritan members’ prayers and sharing in the medical bills, I am able to continue caring for others’ sons and daughters through His ministry at “The Homestead” through Cadence International. You all have contributed through your prayers and Shares to our being able to help young military members come to know Jesus Christ and walk closely with Him while dealing with the difficulties of military life.
Thank you for allowing us to serve Jesus Christ in this way without the pressure of hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. This is truly a gift of God’s evident grace to us through you! We are praising Him for His undeserved lovingkindness exhibited through you.
