Comforted in hospital


Dear Gideons,

In October I was a patient in the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. I had broken my wrist and fractured my hip. I knew Gideon Bibles were in hotels as I have often found them there. Imagine my delight when I found one in the bedside locker the night before the operation on my wrist.

I was afraid and found such support from finding the few familiar passages such as Psalm 23 and others that friends were texting me to look up.

This is such a wonderful service and generosity you offer. I had no idea having been fortunate enough not to have been a hospital patient for all my life apart from aged 11 when I had my tonsils taken out.

This letter comes somewhat belatedly but nonetheless with my gratitude.

Warm regards,
