Every weekday morning, we celebrate a worship service in the hospital chapel. Pastor Santos and his team take turns leading this service. Last week, however, we had a patient step up and share about her life.
Elena Salazar Chulla is a Quechua woman from the state of Puno, who became a believer in Jesus Christ about ten years ago. Back then, she could neither read or write. Encouraged by her new faith, she asked God to heal her of an illness. When her prayer was answered, she was suddenly filled by a tremendous amount of energy, resulting in her learning to read and write both in Quechua as well as in Spanish as an adult.
That said it wasn’t a complete surprise that this patient was eager to step up to the pulpit to express her thankfullness for what God had done in her life.
