Can You Imagine A Life Like This?

dump1i

Wendy is only 28, has 5 kids and rides a bus 3 hours a day so she can work at the Tegucigalpa dump. She spends her day digging through other people’s trash searching for things she can recycle … it’s her job and the only way she can support her 5 children.

On top of ALL that … Wendy just learned that she had cancer. A public health doc told her that she could start free treatments in about 8 months, but her cancer doctor told her that if she didn’t start treatment now, she would be dead in 8 months.

Private treatment cost $2500 and is impossible if you only make $25 or $30 a week working in a dump and have 5 children to support. My friend Marc wept with Wendy as she told him her story. They also prayed for a cure and that these 5 kids won’t be orphaned. It was then that we stepped out in faith and decided to help her get treatments. The money we are using is money dedicated to building our mission house because we believe that Wendy’s life is more important.

The annual Dump Fund contributions that are given help with needs like Wendy’s. We believe helping and serving the poorest of the poor is something God wants us to do. Food, shelter, medicines and many other needs are met through our Dump Fund donations. This year’s Dump Day will be May 8th. Be praying about how you can help on Dump Day.

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
