It has been quite an amazing journey raising fund for Gina’s skin operation. Gina is a 7 years old girl and her skin was burnt in a house fire. Her younger baby brother was killed in the fire. When Peiru and I heard her story in Pan de Vida, God filled our heart with compassion and love for Gina. Peiru started baking cookies to sell in order to raise fund for her operation and our friends gave generously after hearing her story. Together with Hope Quito and another church, we managed to raise USD$7,000 for Gina’s skin operation. Thank God for his providence! 🙂
I went to the Hospital Voz Andes this afternoon and met the family of Gina. The parents were grateful that the fund was raised to pay for the operation. We prayed together and asked God to help Gina recover soon after the operation. Gina will go through an initial operation on her fingers first. Let’s continue to pray for Gina and her family even as you read this entry.
