Roy Rios was in a wreck and after a long stay at the hospital, gangrene set in. He lost both legs – they were amputated up to his pelvis. Prayers of strong faith came to his ears through our friends that live in Honduras or via skype from here in Austin, Texas! Everyone prayed for him as his doctors continued to remove more and more of the infected skin. He would have died had the Lord not rescued him. The infection stopped. Through his ordeal, he surprised us with his attitude and thanksgiving to God. Because of the goodness of God and the generosity of our partners, he now is fully mobile. Through a concerted effort we were able to get him an electric wheelchair. Today he is filled with praise to our God and is sharing the Gospel with his new wheels! He is so grateful. Thank you to our friends in Honduras and here in Austin that made it possible for us to supply Roy with his emergency medical needs. It truly is a joy to give!
In the video below, you can see one of Roy’s new friends walking with him as he test drives his new set of wheels! While, it looks like Roy is off to a bumpy start, he has expressed pure delight and is appreciative for his support from partners like you! Roy carries his bible where ever he goes and has been pouring into young people’s lives about the goodness of God! We are Blessed to know him and it’s good to know that he is busy sharing the Gospel in this Christmas Season!
