We sat in silence. I was stunned. I knew that my hearing aids were getting old, and needed to be replaced. We were not prepared for the fact Mike needed them as well.

We listened as the audiologist explained the benefits of the new hearing device. What was the bottom line? The two sets of hearing aids would cost us $8500. We reluctantly signed up for the payment plan.

We were trying to pay off medical bills from my broken shoulder and a procedure Mike had. You think you have insurance until medical issues come up. It sure did not pay for my physiotherapy.

As missionaries we live on a limited budget. Our first resource is prayer. I then wrote an emergency email to a number of our close praying friends explaining the situation. It is humbling! I also made some phone calls. I contacted our mission to see if any contingency funds were available for this type of unexpected medical expense.

Over the years Iíve learned we walk by faith, but it is also necessary to put feet to our prayers. I was bold. First because this was not just a medical need, it was a ministry need. How is it possible to work with people, especially if English is their second language, if you canít hear properly?

I emailed our largest supporting church, and contacted another mission group about their buffer fund. All our support comes for churches and individuals who partner with us in reaching Hindus for the Lord.

We do have a great mission organization. They require that we are equipped to minister, have our financial support, and also have 100 daily prayer partners.

God put a number of unexpected things in place. With a sense of awe, we went back two weeks later to pick up our hearing aids and wrote out a check for the full amount. That was August 2012. How good God is.

We are grateful for this modern day of technology. Our hearing aids are state of the arc, and enable us to better live among and love our Hindu friends.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
