Mother of the community Varalakshmi, 77, is a widow from India, who lives with her son and his wife. She is known and loved by our partners and is supported through our widow sponsorship scheme. As well as attending church regularly Varalakshmi has a strong network of Christian friends, meeting with them every Tuesday and Wednesday evening for prayer and fellowship. Varalakshmi suffers from high blood pressure and diabetes. Recently she was hospitalised due to swollen legs, which made walking difficult. She testifies that the church’s commitment to hold her up in prayer has healed her and she praises God for his continued faithfulness to her.
