Mr. Walter was a grade school friend that I grew up with over 20 years ago. It has been in fact, 20 years since I last saw my childhood friend. UNTIL...Approximately 1 month ago, a family member informed me that they saw Mr. Walter living homeless in a Kansas City park with some very concerning health issues. He was clearly malnourished and in a great deal of pain.
My wife and I are faithful followers of our Lord and Savior, *Jesus Christ.*
So after being prompted by the Holy Spirit to go see Mr.Walter, we instantaneously made plans to go see him right after Sunday Service. We wanted to share our love, life and faith with Mr.Walter and encourage him however it may be needed. But as we climbed over the rock wall for our first glance at Mr.Walter, It was heartbreaking to see him in such a physical state; but equally as compelling, was seeing his surroundings.
Both his body and his leftover food scraps were being invaded by relentless flies while he struggled to sit up and greet my wife and I through his agonizing pain. It was unbearable to see this poor man in such dismay and agony. So we said a prayer and asked God for some sortof comfirmation.
My wife and I went to go get Walter some lunch and came back to a praying man, thanking God for answering their prayers, As in, my wife and I being the answer. We celebrated briefly and loaded Mr. Walter up and took him to our home. We hoped some good food and alot of R&R would help. Sadly, Walters conditions only got worse. We were forced to take him to the ER.
They immediatley got him hooked up to very strong antibiotics and he is well on his way to recovering physically, however, they may have to do a spinal surgery as well.
Mr.Walter cannot qualify for any kind of insurance right now and has been denied by (unmentioned) hospitals as well.
so we are reaching out to others like ourselves that would open up your hearts and let's take a leap of faith based on compassion and take care of one of our own right here in the good ole US of A.
Mr.Walter took care of his mother and father in thier later years; approximately 9-10 years total. He was essentially their in-house care provider for them until they had passed away.
Now without his family and loved ones, he is jobless, homeless and ready for change but lacking the necessary and adequate amounts needed for his medical bills consisting of recovery costs due to the nasty bacterial infection that they found in his 7th vertibrae which he will likely need this surgery.
I believe that there is compassion in every single soul, and if it were you or me in this position, wouldn't you also be praying for those who are gifted in giving and that they might contribute, or those who have immense compassion could say a prayer for those that are unabled to fend for themselves. In this case, it would be Mr.Walter.
Our hope is to have an incredible testimant to faith, recovery and goodness to all mankind.
Thank you all in advance, anything helps! God Bless you all and may your cup overflow so much so that you cannot contain it!
~God Bless you
