Christmas in Uganda

Saturday, December 14, 2019


Dear Friends,


Uganda - Soroti Orphan Assistance Program

Keith Stensaas hosted our Uganda 2019 clinic.  We had a great clinic with Keith.  With all our Ugandan partners there were 97 on our medical team.  We broke into two groups and treated over 2000 patients all being given the message of Christ.

One patient was a 17 year-old patient with a serious hip problem. Alan Sutphen in Soroti, Uganda is a medical missionary, and he helped ORH obtain surgical help for the young man and wrote the following.

     “Bro Milton,  The young man's name is Kaduma Christopher. He is a 17 y/o young man who dislocated his hip over a year ago.

     The labs showed no evidence of infection, so the surgeon is recommending a total hip replacement. As one who worked for 15 years in orthopaedic surgery, doing hip replacements in teens is not the best scenario….  But certainly, a replacement would give him much better mobility and better quality of life.

     I spoke to the surgeon today, and the price is $6,000 for the prosthesis, hospital costs, etc. He'll get me an itemized bill and I can send it to you.  Blessings, Alan”

Because Caduma Christopher is young, eventually, he will need another surgery.  Brother Sutphen also wrote this week.

     “Bro Jan, I spoke to the surgeon today, and he said Chris' surgery can be done next Friday. I suppose we would need the funds by next week….”

Pray for this young man.  His father is dead, and he lives with his grandfather.  Life can be difficult at times.  ORH wants to relieve some of that if possible.  They both have received the Gospel.  By faith, ORH is sending the funds for the surgery.
