“I play the bass guitar at church and occasionally lead songs in worship. My favorite worship song is entitled ‘Worthy.’ This song tells me that God forgave me for my sins even if I don’t think I’m worthy. I look forward to playing the bass guitar again and be back in the worship team once I’m healed,” says Hilda.
As the oldest daughter in her family, Hilda is responsible for juggling many things at home. Unfortunately, those responsibilities are on hold since her motorcycle accident. “A month ago, I was on a motorcycle with my cousin on the way to my other cousin’s house when I got hit by a tricycab (a motorcycle used for public transportation.) I broke my leg and I have not been able to get out of bed since then,” Hilda tells us.
“She’s a great help to me and our tiny store at home, she helps me collect payments and refill stocks in store. She’s really responsible. After her accident, we went to a couple local hospitals who couldn’t offer any help because they either did not have any doctor available to do surgery, or we could not afford to pay $800 for the stainless rod. We decided to bring her back home. Thankfully, our neighbor has a child who had surgery at Tebow CURE, and recommended us to come here where Hilda will have surgery.” Hilda's mom, Leah, tells us.
In the future, Hilda hopes to become a police officer. And in the meantime, she looks forward to be able to move and hang out with friends and go back to school after surgery. Because of your support, Hilda gets to experience God’s gift of healing, so she can continue to serve God at church as well as her family!
Pastor Loloy and Janice from Seeds of Dignity, one of our partners in the field, stopped by to visit Hilda this morning. Her legs were a bit sore, so she had a couple ice packs handy to help with pain. It's a different kind of pain though, the one that actually heals. As we spent time with Hilda today, she knew that she's not going through this healing process alone even when she's going to continue healing at home!
Christmas came early for our OR staff, we have a new C-Arm x-ray machine! After months of dealing with the temperamental old one, Dr. Shelley and the rest of the staff are in love with the new addition to the team! Hilda had her femur straightened and plated, which will allow her to finally begin to heal. The C-Arm reassured Dr. Shelley that everything exactly was where it should be before Dr. Ray Ray stitched her surgical site. We are so grateful to our donors for making this possible!
Since Hilda’s motorcycle accident happened on November 9th, she hasn’t been able to move or go anywhere without feeling any pain. She’s happy to have surgery, but is also nervous to go through with it. Dr. Shelley checks her breathing to make sure that she’s all good to go for tomorrow’s procedure. Leah tells us that she can “only pray for God’s hands to be in the procedure,” and we are inviting you to pray with her!
