Read Her testimony Below;

Guys! I am so excited!!!!! This last week my “adopted” brother became Dr Paul.

Our family first met Anejodo Paul in a small remote village in central Nigeria about 18 1/2 years ago.

I remember my heart breaking when I saw this kid under a tree swatting flies away from the raw and open tissue on his leg that had been caused by a flesh eating bacteria.

Many months later, through the kindness of a donor in the U.S., he was brought to the SDA Hospital in Ile-Ife for treatment of his buruli ulcer related disease and complications.

Over a year later, he came home to live with our family so that, at 13 years of age, he could start school. Did I mention he was 13 and starting first grade????

And this week, he got the news that he has passed his final medical school exams.

Thanks to MANY miracles from God, the medical care provided by doctors at the SDA Hospital in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, the support of many who contributed to cover his school fees, and other needs through the years, his own persistence in spite of MANY obstacles, he is now Dr. Paul!!!

We are all so proud of you, Paul! And I can’t wait to see where God continues to take you on this crazy journey he has had you on.



    • God blesses you and your selfless work! There is no need to post young paul's picture showing ulcerated skin. it will have a blow on his self esteem and confidence. If you can take the old picture the better it will be Thank you.

  • God will continue to bless you and your family. Our leaders and politicians should emulate this. If this lady had not come to the rescue of this boy only God knows what would become of his life. Your labour of love would not go unrewarded. God Bless you.

    • Ma am, you have sown in the fertile soils of God and humanity, you shall reap abundantly the fruits of your kind deeds.

    • God bless you madam. You saved a soul from potential death. I believe your unselfish kindness has produced a soul God will use in future to bring healing to many souls. I say again God bless you.

  • God bless and strengthen you always. We are so guilty of seeing our own brothers, sisters, fathers, and mothers suffer on the street and ignore…so quick to judge and cast away. God help me to be a better version of myself and be a pillar of help to all who truly need it.

  • This is how God does his miracles, not the abracadabra stuff many Nigerian and African doctors perform. One will see a gradual progress in his case. Not sudden and unbelievable healing that won’t last.

  • It takes a real person with a Heart of Christ to do what you did. Remember that whatsoever you sow, you will surely reap. God is going to reward you greatly.
