ORH has branched into a new form of medical ministry, Village Medical Assistant. These are missionaries willing to form national medical professional teams and conduct medical clinics with the financial support of ORH.
Please download the PDF to see the clinic conducted by Dr. John Paul Moses in India. He and his family now have formed a national team with two medical doctors, one dentist, a nurse, and an evangelistic preaching team.
Daniel Jones, PA is directing this new ministry. He wrote the following report from the updates sent to him.
Malawi – 817 patients seen in 3 bush villages. These villages have no health care. The people here must walk for hours to visit a clinic. There were over 100 professions of faith. There are new church plants in each of these villages. Dr. Chapman is working with the pastors in these villages.
Cambodia – Dr. Tom Johnson and his team saw 100 patients in the Forest Da Pong village on November 17th and 18th. There were 23 who accepted Christ. Plans are in the making for a new church in this village. The surround villages also want to host a VMA clinic.
India – Dr John Paul and his team saw 110 patients in the Lakkavahalli village as an outreach of Lakkavahalli Baptist Church. Most of the people who came were Muslim and Hindu. There is much hostility to the preaching of the gospel in this region of India. Thankfully, the clinic was well received, and there were no problems. All the patients were introduced to the church there and able to hear the gospel. Sixty-seven people made professions of faith.”
VMA clinics offer many blessings. 1. The clinics encourage missionaries to conduct evangelistic medical clinics with the financial support of ORH 2. The clinics increase the presence of ORH, and its world impact for the Gospel. 3. The clinics build groups of national medical professionals for work with ORH in many different countries. 4. The clinics lead to more people saved and more churches encouraged or started.
The India clinic cost $1057.00, and the Cambodia Clinic cost $550.00. A very small amount of money for such wonderful spiritual and physical return.
Pray we can continue this financial load which is new for our ministry.
