If God brings you to it, who surely bring you through it?
This is a philosophy that many people who have a strong faith will follow.
Life is not always easy and sometimes people question their faith in God because it seems like one thing after another happens.
It’s very important to trust God that he has a plan, even if you cannot see that plan clearly right now.
All you have to do is having faith that the most high will sue you through tough times and help you reach the other side, even though it seems it might take too long, even though it seems impossible.
Today we’re back in Burundi.
We’re visiting again 18 year old maria, who has spent a lot of years sleeping as she can’t move.
Sit stand, not do anything.
How it all started
For those who are watching maria for the first time, this is how it all started godeliva had a husband in the first place, who they were in love with.
They shared everything they had with pleasure and gave birth to a child.
They were very happy because this baby was normal and everything was fine.
I looked normal at bath, but very soon everything changed to being very bad.
That baby is maria, and at only six days old the baby started crying a lot in the night she had a lot of temperature and they did not know what was happening.
In the morning she rushed her baby to the hospital and, according to her, that’s when her life got ruined.
The baby’s condition kept getting worse and she thought that maria was going to die.
The baby kept being sick, that she had to spend month and month in the hospital.
Days became weeks which turned into months, and in two years, while she was living in the same hospital, a baby’s head had become extremely big.
She was told by the doctors that her baby was suffering from a condition known as Hydrocephalus, which is one that a fluid fills up on the baby’s brain, hence making the head bigger than normal.
Until this mother failed paying the hospital bill and later got kicked out of the hospital, she was sent back home because she had spent a very long time without paying the hospital bills.
Buying medicine had also become impossible.
The worst part of this is that after Maria became sick and doctors confirmed that she was suffering from Hydrocephalus, their father cowardly chose to fulfill his parental responsibilities and abandoned them.
And upon getting home, her husband was shocked when he saw this baby.
Well, he did not pretend like he was happy at all
And she said that he was going to kill that child.
He told Codeliver to kill this baby if she still wanted to live with him.
She refused to kill her own daughter, so he walked away and never came back or even called from that day.
Well, we might call this being unlucky, as this woman met a lot of men, but these men can’t stay with her for long.
They all reject her, regardless of how many children they produced with her, and the painful part of this story is that none of them ever seems to care about children they produced.
They all leave this on top of the mother’s shoulders.
To handle life is very difficult for the mother of 8, who was abandoned by all her husbands as they left her with eight children in total, and she’s assigned to taking care of them.
She puts in more and more efforts, and this is what she does for a living.
She goes through her times to get food for her children.
She has to go to the streets each and every day to sell candy, while also begging for money.
Surprisingly, she has to go with her daughter maria each and every day because she cannot leave her at home with such a situation , as it’s our custom.
If we visit one, we make sure we revisit and see how far they’ve gone and see whether we can give a little support.
We told this family that we have something for them.
Even without knowing what it was, they threw themselves up in the air and felt happy immediately.
They of course hoped it was something good.
They helped, unloading all what we brought to them- and among what we brought today includes rice, soaps, cooking oil, pampers, mace, flour and many more- so as to keep them going.
After this mother’s painful life story that almost left everyone cutting onions was published, a Gofundme campaign was opened and a few people contributed.
That’s why we all brought these to this mother and this surely made her happy.
Since we left, the situation is still the same.
Nothing much has changed so far and Maria’s health issues are still like the day we visited.
The 18 year old is still spending her days sleeping as usual.
On the other side she says when we left she had a lot of problems to solve, including paying children school fees and that’s cool materials, feeding them as usual and doing more.
Godly says God has helped her and she was able to solve a few of her problems and says, if God wishes, she’ll even handle the remaining issues.
As a believer, she has faith and knows that one day should be testifying God’s goodness.
She was also in need of a telephone so as to communicate to different people.
As it’s difficult to talk to this mother of 8 due to having no fun, you have to go old school and use the old method of finding how well she works, or else where she lives.
This has always been a problem to us, as it was not easy to communicate to them.
Even if we wanted to say hi, we had to cover the big distance just to greet the mother and then return.
But that’s okay to us.
But how about other people wishes to communicate to this mother?
Of course that was really difficult, as she knew that was it.
We surprised her with something else.
She previously requested that treatment is all she needs, but this is so costly to afford easily.
She also mentioned that a capital to invest in her street vending business would be vital, without beating around the bush.
This is what we have for the mother.
Okay, it’s a mobile phone to help her easily communicate with different people and some money to increase her business capital.
We hope this will be of a great impact to this family.
As a believer.
She quickly thanked God and confessed blessings to everyone who thought of her and her family in general.
I’ve got 375 she’s now going to get her children all the school materials they lacked and some of them were even chest away from school due to lack of scofies.
After seeing the phone and knowing how much she needed such a device for communication, all she did was start singing a song of praise.
We thank each and everyone who contributed that cod liver can now smile and now hope for a better tomorrow.
All because of you, though, it seems as a little act to some people it means a low to this mother.
The journey continues.
The goal is to take maria to the hospital for treatment.
As we all know, she’s suffering from Hydrocephalus and these local hospitals failed to treat the 18 year old.
The solution is taking the gun abroad for the advanced treatment.
