Today, leprosy (also known as Hansen’s Disease) is shattering thousands of lives worldwide, especially in Asia. Although leprosy is treatable, people in Asia who live with this disease are commonly shunned by society and are driven to seclusion.
Through GFA-supported leprosy ministry, Sisters of Compassion and other national workers are ministering to the needs of leprosy patients in Asia, bestowing dignity to those whom others have rejected. Simple acts of love, such as cooking meals, making customized shoes, providing medication or cleaning wounds for a leprosy patient, demonstrate how God deeply cares about all His creation—even those who have been crippled or disfigured by this devastating disease.
Please use these prayer suggestions to learn more about leprosy and to guide you as you pray for GFA’s ministry to those affected with leprosy.
