Let me tell you about a sweet family that I’ve come to know, personally, over the past few years. They’re a family of 5 - Mom, Courtney; Dad, Ben; Big Brother, Lucas; Big Sister, Aiyanna, and Baby (she’s 5 now), Mahina. They are shining lights that truly display the fruits of the Spirit, and we love them dearly.


Mahina has always had something special about her. She has had delays since birth and doesn’t communicate very much. She loves things that spin and reflect light, and that girl will eat her weight in ground beef! Her first word, at least to my knowledge, was at age 3, I believe, at our house one evening while we were gathering for Bible study on Sabbath. She said, “HaleluYah!” She said it again and again! We were all so in awe and so happy for her.


As I type this and remember time spent with Mahina and her family, tears are welling up and spilling over. We actually first met on a 7-day camping trip. The first night they were there Mahina kept the whole camp up because she wasn’t happy in the tent. She much preferred to be gazing at the moon and the stars all night. We all quickly learned that Mahina’s new thing was night gazing, just staring up into the Heavens, to which we all followed suit and did the same. The kid knew peace came from up there, and soon we all felt it too, and it became a nightly event during our camping trip.

Now Mahina and her family need that peace more than ever. They also need our financial help for mounting medical bills and her dad being unable to work (in Alabama) since they went to Ohio for a funeral and ended up taking Mahina to the ER when she stopped eating, drinking or doing pretty much anything. They’ve been stranded there at the hospital in Ohio for 3 weeks, as one test led to another and doctors determined that Mahina has a massive, aggressive brain tumor that they originally deemed inoperable. Now they’ve decided to operate. They actually took about 1/3 of the tumor yesterday and will try to get the rest tomorrow.


These are all the details I know currently, but we’re all believing in our Creator for a miracle.


It was my suggestion to forgo a go-fund-me or similar platform since a portion of the money is taken by those companies, so Dad, Ben, has set up a Venmo account just for Mahina.


Anything you are able to donate to this family is greatly appreciated. I will update as I know more.
