Has homeopathy been looked into as an option at all? I know homeopathy is widely used in India and using homeopathy to treat leprosy or even prophylactically as a preventative would be less expensive than a vaccine and would be safer and more effective.

Oh Becky, my heart is rejoicing and my grandchildren and I are doing a happy dance all the while I am both laughing and crying. Praise God!! What can we do to help get this vaccine to our dear brothers and sisters who need it?? Thank you for all you and all at Rising Star Outreach for the blessings from heaven you call down and administer.

While a University student in France, I'd listen to my favorite program, "Radioscopy," that each day featured a well-known individal. One time, Raoul Follerau, who created the world's greatest foundation against leprosy, that carries his name, was invited to talk about his life and philosophy. I was greatly impressed with the interview, and wished I could meet him someday. A few years later, while a missionary in Paris, I was asked by a Sister in California to take a Book of Mormon to him. I did, and briefly met him. Interesting how the Lord can fulfill such simple wishes in His own time-table.

We need more information. Is this a one dose vaccination or will several doses be needed? How many will the world need to truly eradicate this disease? Are there plans afoot to get a vaccination program underway? Is there a way to help? Is there another host for the disease or will it be like smallpox, once gone no more vaccinations needed? Step one is funded. On to step two.

I feel such joy at hearing this good news. Too much news in the world is ugly and painful. How beautifully refreshing to read this great announcement. God bless Professor Talwar for his years and years of loving service. I am so happy to pray for the success of Rising Star Outreach.

This is truly a miracle! Thank you for sharing this wonderful news with us. One usually does not know the outcome of contributing to worthy causes - especially those that seem to tug at our hearts. This is thrilling news. Thank you for reaching out with your hope and especially for this saintly man who has given 36 years of his life and energies to finding a vaccine for this terrible disease.

Dear Becky,As I finished reading your article about reaching the financial goal for building the school in Little Flower Bihar just now, I was moved to tears. I could feet the love, the support, the compassion and generosity of those who contributed. I have been deeply touched by this story and am grateful for the exposure to this cause. I particularly felt moved by the guidance you received in "Look at my children." That had a lasting impression on my heart.THEN when you delivered the news of a vaccine being discovered I burst into tears again imagining the impact of this beautiful gift changing the lives of those with the disease and the hope given for the rising generations. Thank you for all the work you, your staff and other volunteers on the ground do for such a noble cause. God bless you all!

Roberta HarrisOctober 25, 2019

Oh Becky... I want to shout out Hallelujah!!! For the funds raised... for the donor matching them and for the development of the vaccination!!! What wonderful news for us and all the multitudes of people who will be blessed in the future. Thank you,.. thank you. With love Roberta and Don

Becky - Thank you for the incredible impact you are having. It's inspiring to read your story and hear how one person can make such a difference when guided by the spirit. You are changing the world! You truly are an inspiration to us all.

I had difficulty reading this feature because of the tears in my eyes! I had just received a text from a friend testifying how the Lord is in the details of our lives. I’m simply overcome with humility. I too work for a charitable organization changing lives in a little village in Mexico. I think when we are able to participate in this kind of work the Lord gives us a vision, very palpably, of how great his love is for his children and what lengths he will bless us as we do Service to those in need. I rejoice in your success and pray that the Lord will continue his blessings over you. The news of the vaccination is a little bit mind-boggling after such a long time.. Truly the day of miracles has not ceased! May God bless us all!

Martin JohnsonOctober 25, 2019
