“Hospital Ministry has opened my heart to Jesus much more than I believed it ever could be. It has given me the strength to believe in myself. It has inspired me to read the Gospels, and has brought me peace and calmness in my heart knowing God will be there for me today and tomorrow. It has made the Gospel alive to me, showing me how God is working in my own life and how the Bible relates to my life. I am so excited for my new life with Jesus.”
– John* is a 33-year-old ex-Heroin addict who arrived at Booth Memorial Hospital about 9 weeks ago with septicemia all over his legs after spending months on the streets. John is HIV+ and his leg has been permanently damaged by the septicemia meaning that he will most likely never walk properly again.
But if you spend just a few minutes with him, you will see a life that has been radically touched by the Gospel. Spend a few minutes praying with him and you will know without a doubt that this man has a deep love for and a very real relationship with Jesus.
John has no idea where he is going next but he has unwavering faith and trust that God is going before him and God is going with him, and that no matter where he lands up, he knows that God will protect him and provide for him.
Love from the Hospital Ministry team
