Help with Romie's required medicine

Romie and Steve Rassel live in Salinas, Ecuador.  They were the instrumental couple who asked God to bring an English Speaking Church to Salinas.  In 2014 He answered their prayer and Church on the Beach originated in their apartment.  Both Romie and Steve have been a blessing to COTB and to the community in too many ways to list.

After Romie and Steve returned from their vacation to visit family in the US, a tragic accident occurred. On their way to Church in March 2017, Romie fell and suffered a complicated fracture to her left leg just below the knee. 

Through a series of medical mishaps, Romie contracted a deadly staph infection and has undergone multiple surgeries.  She is now recovering in Cuenca.  The Hospital and Doctor expenses have been outrageous for this couple.  Because of the severity of this infection, which happens to threaten the preservation of her leg, she must take medicine that costs  $1,500 a week.

Church on the Beach is an outreach of Ness Ministries, Inc. and qualifies for US Citizens to obtain a letter of contribution for a legitimate tax deduction.

Please give generously to this lovely, giving couple.
