Spotlight Update: Philip and Jummai Nache

For more than a year, the Nache family has experienced a profoundly difficult season of health struggles. After a health event in February 2021, Jummai experienced a series of illnesses and medical interventions, including the amputation of both her legs below the knee and portions of both hands.

The family’s lives have been filled with medical appointments and hospital stays, and Jummai lost her job in the health-care field. Through a recent update on their GoFundMe page, Leo Endel, executive director of the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention, wrote, “Their faith in the Lord has continued strong despite the difficulty of their journey.”

He continued, “What lies ahead is an expensive and painful journey of healing that will include costly prosthetics, additional surgery, and necessary modifications to their lifestyle, including modifications to their home and a different vehicle.”

During this time of dramatic transition, the family values prayer and support. In their family update, Philip wrote, “The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, ‘Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.’ We are grateful to God for His grace upon Jummai, the children, and myself as we go through this unprecedented experience and the painful challenges! God knows! On behalf of my family, we are eternally grateful for your generous support and prayers!”
