Y Wo Nie's wife recently wrote to VOM. She wrote:
Our family situation is very difficult. I don't have a job; some days I work as a day laborer and some days I'm unemployed. My youngest son is sickly.
She recently visited her husband in prison, thanks to VOM donors. Her husband is ill. She said:
I’m worried for my husband but God gives me His comfort that He is always with us though we have to face sickness or hard situations; He will help me to overcome my hard times.
I am so inspired to hear of this woman's faithful devotion to her husband regardless of circumstance. Please pray for their family.
