A Debt They Could Not Pay

Debt was growing from a mole hill to a mountain. A young boy was sick with Leukemia and his parents were his caring for him around the clock. There was no time to work and no savings to pull from.

At the time of the diagnosis, the father, *David, had no faith in God. But *Sarah, his wife, was a woman on her knees. Surely God would hear her prayers and do SOMETHING on their behalf?! It was through the young boy’s process of healing that the father began to believe. God worked one miracle after another leaving everyone amazed. The doctors said the young boy would never see light and would remain completely blind. But on one occasion, when a person in the hospital room was using a cell phone, the boy said, “I can see that light!” It was coming from the phone.

After many years of battling Leukemia, the boy was released and declared healed. However, there are still on-going treatments which require much of Sarah’s time. David has been able to return to work and can manage monthly bills, but the medical debt that was accrued during the years of no income is hundreds of thousands of shekels. Without intervention, it will be impossible to ever pay it back.

Currently, our CBN Israel staff is in the process of working out a financial rehabilitation with the family. We are requesting donations on their behalf and will see how God will lead us in helping them to restore order to their finances.

We have seen God do great and mighty works on behalf of His people. We daily seek His will and His wisdom for every situation. He says in Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you do not know.” And in James 1:5 it is written, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”

We need your prayers. Please stand with us in praying for this family that God would guide them on the path of financial freedom and for wisdom to know how to proceed from here.

God bless you!
