It Hurts to Run

Elia is a happy little boy, but walking has always been a struggle.

His mother explained, “When he was a baby, his legs were bowed out. We thought he would outgrow it, but as he got older it became worse. With every step he takes he is in pain.”

He often watches hopelessly as other children play and run around.

“He’d cry out ‘Come back and play where I am.’ He knows he is not like them,” said his mom. “He’d point to his legs and ask, ‘When will I be able to walk and run like they do?’  The hospital told us he needed surgery, but there was no way we could afford it. There were days I went inside the house, locked myself in, and cried out to God to help my son.”

When his mom learned about Plaster House, a ministry supported by Operation Blessing, she reached out to us. We visited their home and soon arranged for him to get the surgery he needed.

CBN Reporter, Dan Reany, said, “One of the many benefits of him getting this surgery now, when he is so young, it will heal really well and pretty soon he’s going to be able to go to school without anyone ever teasing him, nobody giving him a hard time and he will be able to run around and play with all the other kids.”

Elia’s mother said, “I knew God would hear my prayers.”

After a successful surgery, Elia and his mom went to Plaster House for his recovery. Now that the casts are removed, he’s up and running.

“The day his casts came off, he was very excited, and wanted to walk immediately,” said his mother. “All his pain is gone. Now, every time he sees other kids playing, he runs to them to play.  Surely, it is God. He blessed you, so you can bless us. Thank you.  May God continue to bless you, so more mothers and children may be helped.”
