As Jesus was leaving the upper room with His disciples and hearing toward the Garden of Gethsemane, He spoke these words, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weapons lament, the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.” John 16:20. Please help bring joy to the many families experiencing the hardship of crushing medical debt.
