When your child has a life-threatening accident, it’s no time for financial considerations. Even if you struggle to make ends meet.
When Fr Jonah Campbell’s 8 y.o. daughter Ella fell off her bicycle and severely fractured her scull, the family didn’t stop to think if they could afford her hospital bills.
For over a month the whole family: Fr Jonah, his matushka, and Ella’s two brothers were sick with worry over the fate of their little girl.
They placed their hope in God and were confident that He would not ask more of them than they were able to withstand and, indeed, mercifully, He did not.
Thanks to God, there was no damage to the brain and Ella is now more or less back to her old self.
Fr Jonah is a full-time priest in Wayne, WV. His parish is able to support him, so that he can dedicate all his time to his parishioners and pay his family’s bills.
Although at the time of the accident the family had medical insurance, Ella’s hospital bills alone would have been too much for the family. Fr Jonah was considering taking on a second full-time job, just to pay off the enormous debt.
But thanks to donors like you, instead of working to just pay off his debt, Fr Jonah was able to devote all his time to the parish.
“You saved us from bankruptcy! Thank you!” said Fr Jonah.
Fr Jonah, his family, and his parishioners are so grateful for your kindness! You have not only saved the Campbell family, you have allowed the parish to have a full-time priest. And you can’t put a price on that!
