SANTA FE, TX – Two Texas women know what it’s like to lend a helping hand.

Stephanie Clawson and Ruby Sprayberry were doing missionary work in Niger, Africa. But now they’re the ones who got a helping hand. They were hurt in a car crash in Africa.

Tim Gregory, who was with the women and others, says they were driving on a gravel road when they lost control. The car flipped into a ravine.

Being so far away from home, the women weren’t able to get the proper medical attention they needed. And the news got worse. Because of their injuries, the women couldn’t be flown to Houston commercially. That’s when the women’s Santa Fe church and the surrounding communities raised $75,000 to bring them home.

Now the women are getting the treatment they need.

It’s like the holiday saying goes, “Tis the season for giving” and this community certainly gave back in a big way.
