This past summer, we met Ishawu for the first time. He was so excited to show us how he could now walk, thanks to many prayers, medical intervention and nutritional supplements.
Ishawu's family is Muslim and there are no Christian churches in his village. Last Sunday, Ishawu and his uncle surprised the Shalom Baptist church congregation of Tarikpaa village when they showed up for church. Here are the words of IHH Missionary Pastor, Ziblim Mohammed:
At our worship service today Sunday in Shalom Baptist Church we received a special visitor in the person of Ishawu. He came all the way from Zugu village to visit and worship with us,he came with his uncle, Fatawu. Everybody in the Church was happy to see Ishawu visit,because everybody is aware that Ishawu could not walk for six years,but by God's grace he was able to walk since last year.
Ishawu took home some nutritional food that was prepared by Dorcas for him and Adijah to be feed. He was rejoicing on his way home. I am not sure that his joy was in the gifts he received from the members but for being part of the fellowship for the first time.
