My wife Norma and I were invited by my wife's brother, who had attended Bible talks at the university. Since then, we went and began to study; we were baptized in August 1992, and a year later, we were given the position of children's ministry which we exercise to date. Unfortunately, my wife, due to her cancer, was given seven months to live, and yesterday she passed away.
I am asking for help from ETF for my wife's funeral since our savings are all stretched out for her medical bills and doctors; we pray that you may help us during this challenging time, not only for me but also for our daughter, Livia. We will be forever grateful for all your help.

My name is Beena and my family and I started attending church in 1996 and we have been a disciple for the last 26 years, Dad, Mom and 3 sister and a brother, we lived a very happy life in Christ.

In 2017, my father was hospitalized due to stroke and brain hemorrhage, he was bed-ridden for 2 years and then in 2019 he passed away. We have still not cleared the loans that we had taken for dad's treatment meanwhile mom fell sick.

My mother, Vineela, is in MICU in St John's Hospital, Bangalore. She was brought to the emergency with a complaint of low oxygen but later was diagnosed with pneumonia while she was being treated for lungs, she had a heart attack and her Oxygen BP dropped drastically, immediately she was put on ventilation.

As per Doctors advice she might have to be in the MICU for another two weeks and then ITU observation for 2 weeks depending on her recovery, the bills are going up and up.            

We have already paid large amount to the hospitals through loans from others.

In this situation whatever we get will be a great help for us, only my sister has a stable job and everyone else holds temporary jobs, her earnings will not be enough to meet all the needs and clear loans.

We will be grateful whatever help we are able to receive. Thank you!

Vicky has been a disciple for 2 years. Her sister and father both lived with her until a few months ago, when her sister committed suicide and left behind an 8 year old son. Vicky has taken guardianship of her nephew and is doing her best to care and console him. Sadly, she was also forced to take on the burden of paying for funeral expenses. She is in great need of financial assistance to pay for burial costs and expenses to care for her nephew. Your support for this grieving family would mean the world to them. Thank you!

Hi everyone, my name is Celeste. I have been a disciple for 24 years. When I first came to church and became a Christian, my husband was not on board. I prayed for more than 50 years and after praying and praying, Victor finally became a Christian 10 years ago. I spent several years in the single women's ministry, and when Victor was baptized, I was able to finally be in the marrieds ministry.

Unfortunately, Victor suffered from various illnesses, including heart problems. On December 24, 2021, he passed away after complications in his digestive system that they could not repair with surgery due to his heart.

I am currently looking for support to cover some of the expenses I have incurred related to his death, specifically some legal costs that I need to pay for. I am in need of $900 to pay for the attorney fees. Thank you so much for your consideration!

My name is Mafkin Alcindor. I have been a disciple for 6 years in Les Cayes. Since I've been a disciple, I always serve the church cleaning, mopping, arranging chairs for services. My mother used to study the bible but she didn't have a chance to became disciple and she passed this last Wednesday. It's like a shame for me because I can't burry my mom. We are poor people trying to survive, trying everything and anything. I thank God for giving me brothers and sisters on who I can rely when things are too hard. So please help me in raising $300 to burying my mom. Thanks in advance God bless.

Angélica has worked for a beauty company for about 5 years. Her income has never been steady because her sales dictate her salary. The same was the case for her husband José, who worked as an Uber driver, and depended heavily on the trips he was able to secure to earn a living.

On November 7, Jose was hospitalized at a public hospital, because we did not have medical insurance. And although the doctors did everything they could to help him recover on November 15, my husband died of cardiac arrest as a complication of COVID.

I would appreciate with all my heart brothers and sisters if it were possible for you to help me with my husband's funeral expenses, since as I mentioned previously, our economic situation is precarious, and more so now with the death of my husband.

I thank you in advance dear family for the great heart you have to help so many of our brothers and sisters in need. God Bless you always and bless the ETF program.
