Geetha comes from a Hindu background and does not qualify for government assistance due to her ethnicity. She was invited to the Chruch by a neighbour disciple Ajitha and she came to the church and in due course of time put her faith in Jesus and became a disciple in 2017, facing the ire of the nearby community. She stood strong during those tough times. Ajitha and Geetha were abundantly fruitful, reaching out to Geetha’s mother Laxmi, and other neighbours Vilasini, Rajalakshmi, Seena etc. All of them are from Hindu backgrounds and became disciple during the Covid affected years 2018 and 2019. (We are very grateful to let you know, all of them received some kind of benevolence from the Church in the form of medicine, groceries and money during those difficult times). Geetha’s immediate neighbour Sunny is coming to the church currently and has expressed his desire to study the Bible.
A year after she became a disciple, Geetha lost her husband who was struggling with blood cancer. While he was in the bed Geetha came out of the house to do whatever work comes into her hand, like domestic help or door-to-door sales etc, and took care of her husband, mother and two daughters. After his demise Geetha is still working as a domestic help and doing her part well. She would not miss giving to God what she could afford every month.
The reason for this request for help is this: Geetha struggles with mild depression time to time and she has low sodium saturation. When this happens, she would sit at home and cry, even when she comes to church she would be crying during the fellowship. We were providing her with necessary medicines whenever she needed it. Geetha has two daughters, elder one is twenty year old and the younger is fourteen. They both have a situation that their skin develops small lump formation. Their father had bigger ones all over his body. Now the lumps are small, new ones come up as time goes by, and it grows also, but it is painless lumps under the skin. This makes the girls very insecure and hopeless, because their chances of getting married or finding a job is grim. As far as we know, such skin situation remains throughout their life time, new ones appear time to time and those lumps grow also.
We also do not know how to help them or what would bring about a sustainable help for them. Kindly consider this, as we are also praying and begging God to show us some way out. And we hope something will come in handy for helping this family.
