June 18th Update: A call today from a family member gave us the wonderful news that Anita came through her surgery with flying colors; and the doctor has said it was a complete success. Thank you to all the Lighthouse Trails readers who prayed for her! May the Lord give Anita a speedy recovery.
Holocaust survivor and believer in Christ, Anita Dittman, is a friend and author of Lighthouse Trails. This week, on June 18th, Anita, who just turned 86, is going to be having surgery on her hip for a joint replacement. The surgery recently became necessary when Anita began to experience continuous severe pain that could not be relieved. Because Anita had a heart attack a few years ago, doctors were not sure they could do the surgery. However, after tests were done to determine whether her heart was strong enough, doctors decided to do the surgery. In fact, some of the medical issues with her heart a few years ago were not showing up on the tests last week.
We would like to ask you to join us in prayer for this dear sister whom God has used so much to tell others about the Holocaust. Even at 86, Anita still speaks to groups about her experience in Germany during WWII. Her story is chronicled in her book Trapped in Hitler’s Hell. Thank you for your prayers for Anita. You can visit Anita’s website to learn more about her.
