How is the Family?
By God’s Grace we are all fine.
I was at AFMIN school in August (from 24th to 28th) and It was tiring but the Grace of God was upon us and I enjoyed my time there – both the lessons and the exams. I especially appreciated the opportunity to meet people from other towns/churches. We were able to encourage each other as we shared our experiences in ministry – both the challenges and the blessings!
By the grace of God 141 patients were saved
Out of 1824 admitted 1600 were healed and discharged by His grace
How many on the ministry team?
We are 30 committed members
What next for this Outreach?
We continue with Sunday ward outreach and ward follow ups during the week.
We are also undertaking home visitation on Saturdays where required and still meet with staff for fellowship each Wednesday lunch time.
As well as this we often have the opportunity to provide spiritual counseling to people who are referred to us by colleagues in other offices within the hospital.
A young woman in ward 2 (Female gynae ward) had prolonged, heavy periods – they had lasted two weeks and showed no sign of stopping. After giving her life to Jesus Christ we prayed for her. She was healed and discharged the following day
Another young lady on the same ward (ward 2) had warts. After giving her life to Jesus Christ she had a successful operation and was released after two days. (Without prayer she would have remained in hospital for longer than this)
A baby in the acute bay of ward 8 (children’s ward) who had pneumonia for three days. After the mother gave her life to Jesus Christ the baby was healed and released the following day.
A young man in ward 6 (male general ward) who had a fever. After giving his life to Christ he was healed and discharged the following day.
Monthly stationary – K200
Monthly talk time – K150
Monthly support – K1000
Please continue to pray for us as a team – that we would have unity in the ministry and that we would have God’s wisdom and knowledge. This ensures that we know His blessing, remain totally dependent on God and follow His leading and direction.
Please also continue to pray that the needs of both patients and their families are met whilst they are in hospital and once they are discharged (needs such as money for food, medicine, crutches, wheelchairs, transportation home etc)
Please lift up the Wednesday staff fellowship before God. Numbers have reduced recently. Please pray that the enemy would not succeed in keeping people away and that God would speak to hearts about the importance of His people meeting for fellowship. Our desire is that these times of encouragement and input would then equip staff to be even more effective ambassadors for Jesus Christ

We continue praying for our brethren in TTN Australia, Operation Lift and TTN Zambia that God would continue to keep them and their families in divine health and divine protection.
