Left To Die
Vinita sat next to Preetha in the hospital with the baby in her lap. Thank God, the little girl had somehow survived without serious injury.
Preetha wasn’t so lucky. Her injuries were life-threatening. But even in the hospital, doctors turned her away because of her faith.
Sitting at her bedside, Preetha’s son said to her, “I don’t know what we’re going to do. The doctors are saying they won’t treat you because we’re Christians.”
Preetha had been left to die.
But then the Church stepped in.
A Light In The Darkness
In her darkest moment, your financial support enabled a local partner to travel to Preetha’s side to pray over and comfort her. Your support helped move Preetha to a new hospital where she was treated, and paid for the life-saving medical aid she needed.
Preetha said, “Had Open Doors’ partners not helped us, I would have died.”
Right now, your support is helping persecuted believers survive through persecution, poverty, and COVID-19.
You are reminding persecuted Christians, like Preetha, they are not forgotten by their global Church family or by God.
Preetha said, “I want to say thank you, not just to God but also to his people who have helped us. I am thankful for what God’s people have done for me. They helped, thinking of me as their own.”
