On April 1st, the Representative of Saint Luke Society (SLS) Colombia, Dr. Daniela Ortiz, and her team carried out a heartwarming activity at the “Pequeños Valientes” pediatric cancer foundation in the city of Bogota. The activity was a joint effort with Emmanuel Church of Bogota and Creatio Latin America. At the request of the foundation, a program was organized for children with cancer to learn about the Gospel and the life of Jesus. Creatio Latin America provided an art activity that allowed the children to reflect on their identity before God.
SLS Colombia also delivered gift packages prepared and shipped by SLS Korea to encourage and give hope to children fighting cancer. After delivering the gifts, the SLS team prayed for the healing of the children and their parents and for them to come to the knowledge of the truth and find comfort. All attendees expressed their gratitude to the team for the program, and team members were touched by the families’ testimonies and encouraged to continue preaching the Gospel.
As health professionals, SLS Colombia believes that mercy is a quality that must be present not only in the spiritual aspect but also in the physical aspect. They hope to reveal God’s mercy and love and be an example within the health sector.
