Help Brinda Shifflett with dental

Born and raised in Wills Point, Texas, Brinda Rohus Shifflett , now age 70, married a young pastor, Rev. Delton Shifflett, and they pastored his first church, First Assembly of God, Wills Point, during the late 1970’s thru the late 1990’s.  They then pastored two other churches in south Texas until his death a few years ago.  Because of his poor health in his last years (he was on dialysis, heart problems, etc.) his church retirement and savings were used for medical bills, thus leaving his widow, Brinda, with only his Social Security as income.  Brinda also has multiple health problems including lung and heart issues, Scoliosis, crippling Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and others.  She is unable to work except to play piano at a small church, Chapel of the Lake, and she helps my daughter at her home a couple days a week.  Anyone who knows Brinda knows she has served the Lord all her life, and nursed her husband in his last years at the expense of her own health.  We were told that her many medications are probably what is causing her to lose her hair and rotted all her teeth, most of which are broken off at the gum line and are poisoning her system.  She now has only one tooth showing in front.  We have tried for two years to get dental assistance for her but have hit a blank wall at every turn.  She has no dental insurance.  The Proposed Dental Treatment Plan for extraction of 21 teeth, removal of two bone fragments and finally upper and lower dentures will cost $10, 312.00.  Her first appointment is on April 30 and includes 7 tooth extractions for $1419.00.  That is our first goal of several.  It is our prayer that God will lead you to help her with whatever contributions you can make, and then share her story with your friends and family to reach as many as possible.  Any amount you can give would be gratefully appreciated.
