This is going to sound crazy, but I can hardly wait for my next Samaritan newsletter and monthly share assignment. I pay this right away when it comes, I know there’s a family who is counting on my money to cover their medical bills and I’m thrilled to send it. I love reading the updates about Samaritan, learning about members who need my prayers, and sending extra money to those with Special Prayer Needs. In this world of gimme gimme gimme and seemingly constant negativity, the Samaritan newsletter brings healing to my soul. It’s hope, it’s a way to tangibly give help and bring peace to another family. I guess that’s why this is another reason Samaritan is better than insurance. It’s more than just getting medical bills paid. It’s sharing prayers and spiritual comfort. Even before I was officially a member I felt like I was part of this community of people. It was a sensation I could almost touch, I hadn’t felt so drawn to anything like that in a long time. I am so thankful everyday for being introduced to Samaritan. Every news story about the ACA makes me shudder and then calm comes over me when I think about this ministry we’ve joined. Despite the sins and screwups I do everyday, I know that joining Samaritan was something I did RIGHT.
