Mama Jo to Germany for Healing

Please help us raise the money to send our precious Mama Jo to Germany for healing at His Place where Rolland Baker was healed of vascular dementia.

Mama Jo
Mama Jo (also known as Mama Mango in Mozambique!!) is full of love and joy, laying her life down for the poor, traumatised and marginalised. After retiring from her nursing career, she served with Ellel Ministries in the UK for 3 years before going into full-time missions abroad in 2002. Since then she has lived in Russia and Spain sharing God's love with the poor, refugees and the homeless.
She has been a blessing and a second Mum to many in countries all over the world where she has ministered and has a heart to serve the Lord for many more years.

Serious Health Issues
Mama Jo has been having serious health issues ever since the week before we moved as missionaries to Gran Canaria 3 years ago. 

The first time it happened she spent a few days in hospital in the UK, a year later she spent 10 days in hospital in Spain but in both places they couldn't work out what was wrong with her.

Difficulty in diagnosing what is wrong
Since then approximately every 6 weeks or so, she has been having nocturnal 'fits' or 'turns' of some sort, sometimes grand mal seizures, waking up with severe memory loss which takes her weeks to recover from. They are suspected to be either some form of epilepsy or possibly TIAs.

Spanish health system very slow
Here in Spain, it takes months to get appointments with doctors and we have to wait until March for our next appointment with the neurologist. The last two appointments we had with the neurologist, they didn't have all the results and so couldn't make a diagnosis. Mama Jo is not well enough to wait until March for an appointment, which based on the last two appointments may not result in anything anyway. 

Community Without Walls
We have known of Community Without Walls in Germany where His Place is based for about 10 years. Mel Tari told us about them and suggested we send my daughter Anya there as a volunteer to live in their community and learn some more hairdressing skills. They were very kind helping me to organise everything and were ready to welcome her with open arms, but unfortunately she couldn't get a visa to go.

Rolland Baker healed at Community Without Walls
I remember when Mama Jo was in Mozambique, Rolland Baker was dying of dementia, and after spending a couple of months with them, he was healed. 

Jason Holbeche healed at His Place
Another friend, Jason Holbeche, a missionary in Cambodia was seriously ill for months and after spending a month at His Place has also been healed. 

Diagnosis and Treatment at His Place for 6,500 Euros
His Place has offered us a place to have a proper diagnosis and treatment. They told me that Mum can't come alone, but that I can go with her as her carer. If we can raise the money, we can go as soon as the end of November. The treatment combines medical care with natural and holistic treatments as well as healing of spiritual roots through prayer, counselling and deliverance. While we are there, I also may have some tests on my stomach, chest and mouth to see if there is anything they can do to help me too. We need about 6,500 Euros to make the trip.
