He Made the Lame to Walk and the Mute to Speak
When Jesus ministered, he made the lame to walk and the mute to speak but more importantly he healed and saved the soul of the mute and the lame. This past Sunday I heard that Sar Sar Oo is scheduled for surgery on September 15. Sar Sar Oo’s brother, Tha Way had his legs straightened this summer and is being fitted with braces as he develops new muscles and to assist him in getting around. Sar Sar Oo has “walked” on her knees for years. Now the surgeons at Baptist Hospital will start her in the same process.
I met a new arrival from the Kayah region of Burma this week as well. His name is Leh Reh. He is deaf and has never learned to talk. He is about 22 and lives with his brother’s family in High Point. He spent his time on Sunday morning in the hall tending his baby nephew so that his brother could learn English.
Our Wesleyan Church family is about the work of Jesus. When we welcome the blind (2 men), the lame (3 people), the deaf (1), the widows (4-6), the fatherless and the aliens among us, we are following the patterns of Jesus and the teachings of the Scriptures.
