We continue with Sunday ward outreach and follow-ups Monday to Thursday.

We also visit discharged patients at home on Saturdays as and when required and undertake counseling both at the office and in peoples homes throughout the week.
An old lady in Ward 1 (female general ward) had difficulties breathing for 1 week. After giving her life to Christ her breathing improved and within two days she was healed and discharged.

Monthly support – K1000
We continue to seek God as a team for His wisdom and knowledge.
We also ask for prayer that the needs of both patients and their families (money for medicine,transport and food for example) would be met whilst they are in hospital and when they are discharged.
We would also value continued prayers for our staff fellowship group as number still remain low.
We continue to thank God for the good working relationship we have with the Hospital management.
The first photo above shows two team members praying for the baby who was run over and had an injured eye. The second photo shows the man in ward 6 who had a fever.
We continue thanking God for the support and prayers from Operation Lift, TTN Australia and TTN Zambia. We pray that God would richly bless you and your families and take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy, productive 2016..
