“As I see others in my family struggling through an insurance claim, I once again thank God for Samaritan Ministries. I never worry about my need being met or spending hours on the phone trying to figure out what went wrong. This is just the practical side of Samaritan. Then there are the spiritual blessings. The kind notes are so uplifting! Knowing other Christians are praying for you lightens the burdens that come with sickness and pain. Thank You, Jesus, for touching lives through this ministry.” – Christine in Montana

“We recently submitted a need for our 9 year old son’s broken finger. It was such an awesome feeling when his face lit up after we gave him cards from complete strangers saying they were praying for him. He couldn’t understand why people he didn’t even know would do that for him. It was a great teaching moment about Jesus! We love being part of Samaritan.” – Matthew and Karen in Indiana

“Having three surgeries in three months – my shoulder and both of Dave’s knees – we were tempted to worry about the finances. We had never sent in a need before. We were so blessed when our needs were shared and every expense was paid. We’ve been able to concentrate on healing and “giving thanks in everything.” We also appreciate how kind the Samaritan staff is. We are telling our friends about it all the time.” – David and Laura in Montana

letter“I was blessed by those who were willing to give to my Special Prayer Need. I pray that God would bless each one of them. I see now how my small amount can end up blessing someone in a very big way. I am very thankful.” – Anna in Washington

“God has blessed us through people we have never met. Even though they don’t know us, they are praying for my husband’s healing. He has never had to have any medical treatment before, but was pretty shaken up with this kidney stone. We were given peace and comfort knowing that so many were praying for him. This ministry is a great way to share our medical needs as we look to Jehovah Rapha, our Healer. It is He that binds us all together.” – Dave in Wyoming

“We can hardly find the words to thank all of you for helping us through our recent medical emergency with our daughter. It was truly amazing to see the Body of Christ surround us with prayer, words of encouragement, and financial support. This was our first exerpeicne having a need shared and we wre so blessed by the staff, too! We are truly grateful to be part of this ministry with all of you. Our daughter is doing great! Through the process we learned so much about our local medical system. We were able to save a lot of money by just making a few phone calls to the doctors and hospital. Most of them have a discount for cash payment. It saved us thousands of dollars. We were active in asking questions, too, which prevented several unnecessary procedures from being routinely performed, and our daughter was especially grateful for this. It also saved us thousands of dollars! The whole experience was unnerving but we will be far more prepared should another medical emergency arise. Although we prefer to be sending shares instead of receiving them, we are so grateful for the prayers and assistance. We are praising God for His faithfulness.” – Scott in Michigan

“Saul and I are so thankful to the Lord. First of all, I am thankful that Saul’s knee has healed completely – we don’t even think of it anymore. What a blessing have work to do, and then to be able to do it. I am so thankful. Next, I am so thankful for Samaritan members. We had insurance for 15 years and never had much help with any bills. And now, with Samaritan our largest bill is paid in full, thanks to the shares we received. What a relief and a blessing. I am so thankful to be part of Samaritan Ministries. May the Lord continue to use this ministry to encourage many.” – Jennifer in Nebraska

“For a year and a half we were on an ACA exchange plan. It was a nightmare to get anything covered. This is my first time having a need shared and it was an amazing blessing. To receive the shares is a joy but the letters of prayer and encouragement from each member reinforces my love and faith in Jesus Christ and His body of believers. I’m so thankful that Samaritan Ministries exists.” — Christopher in Colorado

“We had submitted other needs before, but nothing as large as a pregnancy! I have to admit, I was scared about it financially panning out, but it really did! I had some anxiety about this pregnancy and prayed regularly for our son’s health and a smooth delivery. What made the difference was feeling the prayers of all of those who wrote to us. Knowing there were so many people out there praying for us brought so much peace and comfort. Thank you, Samaritan Ministries!”  – Maureen in Illionis
