The need we submitted in December for my husband’s surgery was shared this month with other members. Checks are arriving! It’s so fun to see what states members are in (4 so far; GA, TN, FL, and AZ). It’s amazing to think that his surgery was only 2 months and 5 days ago. Since we got the bill sent to us and submitted online right away, sharing is super fast. According to the post office stamp on each envelope mail is taking 3-4 days to reach us. That’s not bad. And they’re coming in a couple each day so it’s very easy to manage the list and get it recorded online who has sent us their share. I can see the full list of everyone’s name that was assigned to our need. We could confirm receipt through our online Samaritan account or on paper and mail it in. Either way it’s very simple.
I am SO THANKFUL for Samaritan. We feel so blessed to be a part of this ministry and know that these families are sharing our burden and praying for complete healing. It works! I knew it would because of how well it worked for friends of ours, but it’s still so amazing to have that confirmed for our own need. I plan to take a picture of the cards/checks to put with this post at a later date. Going to the mailbox is such a joy. I don’t have much else to add besides, “wow”. Thank You Lord.

We too had a need submitted from December. Quite honestly an enjoyable experience. Our original need was over $7800 but I was able to negotiate discounts and bring the need down to $5100.
My husband has always been a bit skeptical about the process, but when the checks started to arrive in March, he became the ministries biggest cheerleader.
We have received all the shares appointed to us. What a blessing and a gift to be a part of such an amazing ministry. God has giving us more than we could ever ask or imagine in response to our need. He provided for all of our need.
Blessings and thanks for this wonderful site. I’m not sure how I stumbled upon it, but I’m so happy I did.
Thanks for sharing your experience Karen! We are still great fans of Samaritan, even more so having a need shared and met 100%. I am beyond thankful to have found it and been a part of it these past few years. The crisis of our country’s health care coverage created a path for our family that has kept us protected and supported. I hope word spreads far and wide about this very successful alternative. God bless you.
