Please! Take Away the Pain!

Misha’s painful hernia could rupture at any time, but his parents couldn’t afford the surgery that would save him. See how this brave eight-year-old toughs it out—through prayer! Read Transcript


MISHA IS ONE OF FIVE

CHILDREN IN A VERY POOR

GYPSY FAMILY IN WESTERN

UKRAINE.

LIFE IS HARD HERE, BUT

MISHA'S LIFE HAS MORE

SUFFERING.

HE HAS A LARGE HERNIA THAT

COULD RUPTURE AT ANY TIME.

I LIVE IN CONSTANT FEAR.

HE NEEDS SURGERY

DESPERATELY, BUT WE CAN'T

AFFORD IT.

IT HURTS A LOT, BUT I

DREAM ONE DAY I WILL GET

SURGERY TO FIX IT.

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME TO

SEE HIM TORMENTED FROM PAIN

FROM HER HERNIA.

IT GETS LARGER EVERY TIME HE

GOES OUT AND WALKS AROUND.

Terry: MISHA'S FATHER

ISN'T EDUCATED, AND JOBS ARE

HARD TO FINE.

HE STRUGGLED TO TAKE CARE OF

HIS FAMILY BY PICKING AND

SELLING MUSHROOMS.

FATHER WORKS AS HARD AS

HE CAN, BUT SOMETIMES WE

DON'T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH FOOD

AT HOME.

Terry: MISHA'S FAMILY

GOES TO A CHURCH THAT

PARTNERS WITH "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

I BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN DO

ANYTHING, EVEN MAKE IT SO I

CAN HAVE SURGERY.

Terry: WHEN I MET THIS

BRAVE LITTLE BOY AND HIS

MOTHER AND FOUND OUT HIS

HERNIA WAS LIFE-THREATENING,

I KNEW WE COULD HELP.

WE GOT MISHA TO A HOSPITAL

IMMEDIATELY AND PAID FOR HIS

SURGERY.

I CAN'T STOP REJOICING

OVER THE FACT THAT MISHA'S

HERNIA IS FIXED.

HE IS BETTER NOW.

AND MY HEART IS ADDRESSED.

HE IS VERY ACTIVE NOW.

HE BRINGS WOOD INTO THE

HOUSE AND SWEEPS THE FLOOR,

TOO.

HE IS MY GOOD BOY.

Terry: WE SAW THAT THE

FAMILY NEEDED MORE AND

BETTER FOOD SO THEY CAN STAY

WELL.

SO WE ALSO GAVE THEM SOME

HENC HENS SO THEY'LL HAVE

EGGS TO EAT AND SELL.

I AM SO THANKFUL TO YOU

FOR YOUR KINDNESS.

YOU HELPED US IN OUR TIME OF

GREATEST NEED.

I WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL

FOR THAT.

THANK YOU FOR FIXING MY

HERNIA.

MY STOMACH DOESN'T ACHE

ANYMORE.

THANK YOU.
