One of the greatest physical needs of our time is medical care in the 3rd world. There are people living in Africa who die every day simply because they cannot get access to the most basic of medical care. Places where a simple immunization could save their life. Many are children.
In addition, medical care provides one of the greatest platforms to use in sharing good news with people who otherwise have no way to hear about Jesus.
That is why I am exploring to see if there are any medical personnel willing to venture into Africa to share their professional skills.
We have an opportunity to go this November to a medical clinic we have been connected with for a long time in Africa. The picture posted on this story was taken at one of our mobile clinics.
God is doing amazing things there. Just recently we have 20 new followers who need care and discipleship. If you are interested please contact Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know of any medical professionals interested please pass along this information.
There is a video I love from Francis Chan filmed in 2006. It starts out with Francis on a balance beam. The video is an analogy of how many Christians are so afraid of life that they can miss God . It always challenges me & reminds me that God is a God of challenges. ( Click here to see the video) Many times He will allow us to be pushed beyond what we thought we were capable of to show us that He is the capable of getting us through and providing for us. Some people get so afraid of stepping out of the box , that they miss some amazing things God has in store for them.
That is why I want to challenge you to go on one of our mission trips. I would even challenge you to go one of our more unreached places. God is working in crazy ways around the world. Like the team in Africa that saw a Muslim man come to Christ. The Muslim has a dream about Jesus and went and sought out our team who shared the gospel with him. He accepted Christ right there.
Or like the rough motorcycle rider on the Indian Reservation who followed one of our guys driving a van for 45 minutes. When our guy stopped he pulled up to the driver’s side window and asked, ” Do you believe what it says on the back of your van.” Of course our guy had no idea what was on the back since he was driving a van of the church we were doing the mission trip with. The back of the van said ” Jesus Saves”.
The rider said ” I have been trying to find someone for 12 years who could tell me how Jesus saves.” Our guy share the gospel and the rider accepted Christ on the side of the road!
Don’t miss out . See what God is up to around the world.
You can find some of our trips right here.
