About a week ago, Grace was caught off guard when her husband all of sudden became ill.
“As soon as it happened, I prayed and asked God to send an angel to help me take my husband to hospital,” says Grace. “I knew God had answered my prayer when I soon afterwards heard someone knocking at the gate. When I went to check who it was, I discovered it was one of my husband’s friends.”
While going about his day, the friend had suddenly felt compelled to check on Grace’s husband and thus stopped by the couple’s home. After briefing him on her husband’s condition, they quickly rushed the sick man to hospital.
Upon arrival at the hospital, Grace was asked to pay 700 shillings as registration fees for the patient. However, upon further tests, Grace was informed that her husband would have to be admitted and that the admission fee was 80,000 shillings.”
“I had only 3,000 shillings at the time, and after paying the registration fee, I was left with 2,300. I had no idea how I would raise the admission fee because that was all the money I had,”
Grace says. After dropping the couple off at the hospital, her husband’s friend had left, and thus Grace yet again found herself praying for a miracle.
Her prayer was once again answered when her husband’s friend came back to the hospital.
“He asked me what the doctors had said regarding my husband and after briefing him, he quickly paid the admission fee.”
A few days later, while her husband was still admitted in hospital, his doctor informed Grace that her husband’s condition required foot surgery costing 100,000 shillings. She left the hospital stunned; wondering how to raise the money. Because it was a Saturday, she made her way to church to attend to the cleaning duties in service of God; consciously reminding herself that He is a covenant-keeping God. At the church, Pastor William and Mum Violet prayed for her and she later she returned to the hospital.
“My husband’s friend decided to pay him a visit at the hospital and when he found out about the surgery cost, he immediately paid the full amount on the spot,” Grace explains. “On top of that, he gave us 400 dollars to hold on to just in case of any other emergency. I give God all the glory!”
Her advice to fellow believers: “He is a covenant-keeping God. Hold on to His promises”
