A War for Life

Bradley Mattes   |   December 30, 2019

Simon was born at just twenty-two weeks into his mom’s pregnancy.  That was over two decades ago when technology wasn’t as good as it is today.  Simon’s mom suffered from placenta previa, which is when the placenta detaches from the uterine wall.  It triggered early labor.  Simon spent two years in the hospital and his mom says they had been through a war – a war for life.  The family eventually moved to Kenya to become missionaries.  They founded and run a center for children with special needs whose mothers live in the slums of Nairobi.  The center’s name is Heshima, which means “dignity” in Swahili.  Simon’s now a young man and the center’s pastor.  His mother said that had they not earlier “gone to war,” there would’ve been no Heshima.
