Thank you so much for your prayers on behalf of LWR. Saturday marked a special day, as it was Philip's very first LWR medical camp about 90 kilometers outside of Bangalore, India. We had almost twenty patients come in to the camp. There were ten patients who had actual craniofacial deformities, ages ranged from one month old to seventeen years old. Initial reports from our physicians indicate that all ten may have be appropriate for surgical repairs!!
Philip took the time to mingle and meet with family members who brought in their children with deformities. With the help of the interpreter, he confidentally explained his before and after craniofacial surgery pictures. He shared his testimony with those gathered there. I know many were comforted and consoled with his simple, matter-of-fact explanations of his personal experiences.
To paraphrase Philip in regards to people with craniofacial deformities, "Just because they have something wrong with their body doesn't mean they should be treated differently. They deserve a chance too. We need to help them!"
Come join us!
Because every child matters!
