Hi Guys, how do you do? First of all, I wish you and your family always blessed with Health, Prosperity, and long life. With humble, let me introduce you to a wonderful woman who lived 23 years with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), her name is Netti Sulastri, 54 years old woman from Jakarta, Indonesia. She asks me to speak for her to you because she cannot speak in English.
In the past of her half-life, the disease made her suffering so much, it’s made her joint and bones bent, but she won’t give up on its, she is amazing indeed?
The last time when I visit her, I saw her finger and legs, already bent, RA constantly undermines her physical health. Stayed for 3 days in her house, I observe that, each night, when the disease attack, it’s made inflammatory in her joint and bones, I am believed that the pain is beyond measure, but she tried not to scream, the thing she can do is wake up from her bed, took her bible, and while enduring the pain, she starts singing to praise Lord Jesus, after that she is praying to her Father in heaven while crying, she asked God to mend her and give her strength to face her disease in her daily life. And then she could sleep with a little groan of pain. In the morning, she wakes up, with a smile on her face, she greets good morning to me and her son, she said thanks to God for the life she receives that day, and entering her bedroom, and start to pray with rejoicing.During the day, with help from her crutches, she endured the pain and start to sell soft drinks, just to live on. Meanwhile, her son works hard just to buy her medicine called Arava, because the doctor said she must routine to consume Arava, in purpose to control her Rheumatoid Arthritis ( RA ).But, unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic spreading in Indonesia, brought an economic crisis, the company where her son works having financial difficulties, and her son gets fired. In that difficult time, she cannot afford to buy Arava anymore, she stopped consuming Arava.
Her sons said, it’s almost 1 year without Arava consumed anymore, and her Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) uncontrolled anymore. One day, she collapsed in the morning, her sons took her to the hospitals, and the doctor said her disease already attacked her hip bones, causing bent and fractured. Her hip bones will be cut and must be replaced with a titanium hip prosthesis, called Total Hip Replacement Surgery, and cost a lot of money.
After knowing all of her condition, I have already contacted a church association in my country, and they help us by providing Arava for her. But we still need funds for her Total Hip Replacement surgery. When I ask for her opinion, this kind-hearted and wonderful woman just said, “leave it to God, God who has given me hip bones before, will send it again to me, amen”
I have believed all of us are a part of God's plan to helping others. How about you guys, will you help this poor woman as a part of God’s plan, loves, and mercy? A little help from you is meaningful for her life. May God bless you always.
