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

“It was lovely to receive gifts and notes of encouragement. It is totally different than my experience with insurance companies! I’m so happy I made the choice to join Samaritan.” — unsigned

“My need was met; physically, financially (even during a time of prorating), and spiritually (God’s people praying). Praise the Lord!” — James and Tammy in Virginia

“We’re so thankful for the Special Prayer Need gifts we received. It was such a blessing to see God move in the hearts of members to meet our financial need.” — Rick and Angel in Alabama

“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

letter“Each time we have had a need published over the several years we have been a part of Samaritan Ministries, we are reminded of the blessing it is to be a part of something so Biblical and God honoring. Also, the freedom of choice we have with Samaritan is second to none. Receiving the cards and words of encouragement are a blessing as well.” — Derrell in Texas


“Last year we had a house fire. God graciously spared us any physical harm, and very little damage was done to the contents of our home, but we were facing an extended time before all the repairs could be made so we could move back in. About that time, we started receiving shares for our son’s need. Though the two events were unrelated, we were struck by the blessing of being part of the family of God. While our local church family cared for our needs here, our extended Samaritan family was also supporting and praying for us as well. What a blessing!Our medical need has been met, and we trust all will be made well with the house. God is in control! The experience of dealing with Samaritan at the same time as our property insurance only served to make us more thankful for Samaritan.” — Mark in California


“The Lord protects, provides, and sustains! To share in the needs of other believers and to know the tangible hand of God through it all is to go from fear to joy, from weakness to strength, from despair to praise. Thank you fellow brothers and sisters for sharing our need. We give thanks to God for leading us to Samaritan Ministries, and we pray for continued guidance and wisdom from the Lord.” — Andrew in Ohio
