Jim and I had wonderful salads at Dale’s in Birmingham as guests of a women’s Bible study group from the Church at Brook Hills. These ladies responded to the need of Dr. Svetlana, a Ukrainian pediatrician who is the top HIV/AIDS physician in Ukraine. One day when Jim was speaking with her in her office she asked if he could help her take care of an HIV+ orphan with lymphoma. She was willing to pay $350 for a textbook if someone could find it for her.
Well, this Bible study group took up the challenge, and not only found the book but had it delivered to Jim so that he could deliver it to Dr. Svetlana. And, on top of it all, they wouldn’t accept her money. It was a gift.
We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these ladies…but I forgot to take a picture at lunch. Can you believe it? But I did remember before EVERYONE was gone! Thanks to each one of you for your generosity!!
