How is the Family?
By the Grace of God we are all fine.
My mum has returned home following her trip to visit family in Lusaka and Malawi. She was unwell with Malaria whilst there and for a short time when she first returned but she is better now – just a little tired. We thank God that she has returned to us safely and that she is now well.
By the grace of God 168 patients were saved
Out of 1775 admitted 1696 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 Monday to Thursday. We also continue with home outreach visits on Saturdays and undertake counselling visits during the week as required,
Our staff fellowship group also continues each Wednesday lunch time.
A young lady in ward 2 (female gynae ward) whose five month was in danger. After giving her life to Jesus Christ she got well and was discharged the following day.
A young lady in ICU (Intensive care unit) who had difficulties breathing. After giving her life to Jesus Christ she got well and was discharged after two days

We continue to pray for God’s wisdom and knowledge for us as a team and that the needs of both patients and their families are met – both whilst in hospital and once discharged.
We also continue praying for unity in the ministry and for our families.
On 25/11/15 we had a prayer walk throughout the hospital. This was undertaken over lunch time by both staff and Hospital Ministry members to pray for God’s continued reign and rule at the Hospital.
The first photo above shows a lady with her baby. Her five month pregnancy was in danger of being terminated due to dangerously high blood pressure. However, she gave her life to Jesus Christ and refused this option – choosing instead to seek God’s intervention. As we stood with her in prayer her blood pressure began to come down. Her baby was born healthy, at full term and was a normal delivery. Both mother and baby remain well.
The second photo shows the baby boy a few months after being born with new clothes which we took when undertaking a home visit to the family.
We continue thanking God for our supporters – TTN Australia, Operation Lift and TTN Zambia and we pray for God’s blessings over them and their families
