Washing Away Her Pain

Living in an impoverished Gypsy family, five-month-old Kristina was in constant pain from a severe skin disorder. Learn how a very special gift helped get rid of Kristina’s pain. Read Transcript


Reporter: JANE AND HER

FAMILY HAVE A HARD LIFE IN

THIS GYPSY CAMP IN WESTERN

UKRAINE.

THEY HAVE LIVED THERE THEIR

WHOLE LIVES AND BARELY HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO FEED AND

TAKE CARE OF THEIR

CHILDREN.

THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR

YOUNGEST DAUGHTER, SOFIA,

WHO SUFFERS FROM A SEVERE

SKIN DISORDER.

SHE IS ALWAYS IN PAIN AND

CRIES CON CONSTANTLY AND

CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT.

Reporter: SHE APPLIES

THE ONLY CREAM SHE CAN

AFFORD.

IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING TO

MAKE HER BETTER OR REDUCE

HER PAIN.

I CANNOT HELP HER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

ORGANIZED A FREE MEDICAL OUT

REACH IN THIS VILLAGE, THE

PASTOR TOLD US ABOUT

CHRISTINA AND THE REST OF

HER FAMILY.

WE VISITED HER HOME AND SAW

HOW DESPERATELY THE LITTLE

GIRL NEEDED HELP.

SHE WAS MALNOURISHED AND

UNDER WEIGHT, AND WE

DIAGNOSED HER WITH

BRONCHITIS AND OBVIOUSLY

DERMATITIS.

BUT WE WILL TREAT ALL OF

THESE PROBLEMS FOR SURE.

Reporter: WE TOOK THE

FAMILY FOOD, CLOTHES, AND

ALL OF THE RIGHT MEDICINES

CHRISTINA NEEDED TO

RECOVER.

WE TAUGHT JANE HOW TO CARE

FOR HER DAUGHTER.

AND CHRISTINA'S CONDITION

STARTED TO IMPROVE

IMMEDIATELY.

WE GAVE THE FAMILY A WASHING

MACHINE SO CHRISTINA AND

EVERYONE ELSE'S CLOTHES

COULD BE FRESH.

A FEW MONTHS LATER, WE

STOPPED TO VISIT WITH JANE

AND HER FAMILY.

WE WERE HAPPY TO SEE

CHRISTINA'S SKIN CLEARED UP

AND SHE HAD NO PAIN AT ALL.

THIS SLEEPS WELL AND HAS

GOOD MEALS, AND EVERYTHING

IS GOING VERY WELL FOR US.

Reporter: AND JANE IS

HAVING A MUCH EASIER TIME

TAKING CARE OF HER

CHILDREN.

MY LIFE GOT SO MUCH

BETTER AFTER YOU GAVE ME A

WASHING MACHINE.

AND BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,

CHRISTINA DOESN'T GET SICK

NOW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
