Village Medical Assistant Cambodia

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Dear Friends,

Over the years, Operation Renewed Hope has worked with many hard working and loving missionaries.  Dr. Tom Johnson is one of those missionaries.  He is loved by all who know him.

Dr. Tom has conducted many major clinics with Operation Renewed Hope since 2007.  He now is also doing Village Medical Assistant Clinics with ORH.  These clinics are supported in part by ORH and are conducted during the interim period between our major clinics. 

ORH physician assistant, Dan Jones, has taken over this part of the ministry for ORH.  The goal is to have a constant presence in a country at the lowest cost possible.  Pray that ORH will always have the funds to support these works and increase the places.  Currently, we are working Malawi, Africa; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; and Bangalore, India.  The VMA are much less cost than a static clinic while reaching more locations with the gospel.

Dr. Tom wrote us a report.  These are excerpts from his report.

“Date of clinic:    8/26/2016
Cinic Location: Som Roang Doang Village, Cambodia
No. of Patients:  ___75_____
Spiritual Impact: ___We had 18 salvation decisions.  Because of the nature of the area, the houses being so far apart, people trickled in which made for a tremendous opportunity for one on one evangelism.

Dear Daniel (& Jan):   ….In summary, we saw about 10 ladies with endemic goiters due to iodine deficiency.  One appeared to have Hashimotos disease.  We saw asthma, bronchitis, COPD, hypertension, pre-diabetes, many over use syndromes, a family with a viral syndrome, nutritional deficiencies, 10 patients or more with dehydration.

We had 8 people doing evangelism (including myself), but 5 out of the 8 were the evangelists that I brought along.  The van driver is also a Christian and he helped with evangelism as well.  We tried to show the Jesus film at the end, but due to technical difficulties we were not able to.  We shared the gospel instead and one more person accepted the Lord.  The total decisions were 18.

….Total cost: $646.24

….Once we have our own vehicle, the transportation costs will go down.  Anna has figured out a better way to do food, and because this was our first clinic since being back on furlough, we had some initial supply costs that we won't have at the next clinics.

….Thank you very much for sending the donation….Your financial support on our very first clinic was very helpful….It was great working with you on the first one.  Our next clinic will be on September 9th in Kampong Cham province….For the great Harvest,  Dr. Tom Johnson”

ORH was able to send $560.00 to Dr. Tom for his clinic.  Pray for Dr. Johnson and ORH that the funds will be available to continue this very profitable ministry.

God bless,

Jan Milton
