How is the Family?
The family are fine by the Grace of God.
My niece has had a successful operation. The issue has been resolved and we await the test results to discover the cause. We thank God that she is back to full health.
My mum is currently in Malawi visiting my Grandma and other relatives.
By the grace of God 120 patients were saved
Out of 1000 plus admitted 800 plus 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 have lunch hour staff fellowship each Wednesday and continue to visit discharged patients on Saturdays as required.
We also receive referrals for counseling – both at our office and off site in people’s homes.
Once a month we have prayer and fasting with Hospital ministry team to pray for the ministry, patients, families (both the patients families and our own), ourselves and members of hospital staff
A Jehovah Witness in Ward 8 (Children’s ward) had a sick child – she had a high temperature. After giving her life to Jesus Christ the child got healed and was discharged the following day.
A 7 month old baby in the same ward (ward 8) had severe diarrhoea and vomiting. After the mother gave her life to Jesus Christ the baby improved and was discharged two days later.
An elderly man in Ward 9 (male surgical ward) had stomach pains. After giving his life to Jesus Christ he felt better and was discharged the following day
A young lady in Ward 1 (Female General Ward) who had severe fever for 1 week. After giving her life to Jesus Christ she got well and was discharged the following day
A young lady in Ward 2 (Female gynae ward) had lower abdominal pains for two weeks. After giving her life to Jesus Christ she felt better and was discharged the following day
Monthly stationary – K200
Monthly talk time – K150
Monthly support – K1000
As always we pray for God’s knowledge and wisdom. We also continue to ask for unity within the ministry team.
We would ask for continued prayers for the the staff fellowship as numbers fluctuate considerably. We believe that, as staff receive encouragement together this will powerfully impact the hospital as they go back into their various departments.
Please also continue to pray that the needs of both patients and their relatives are met – in terms of necessary medication, food and transportation
The first photo shows Sister Tamara and one of the OM brethren in the premature nursery ward standing by an incubator which was donated by Kabwe Chapel through TTN Zambia. The incubator originally came from Australia.
The second photo is of Sister Tamara and the mother of a premature baby who was very underweight when born and had difficulty breathing. The mother gave her life to Christ and, following prayer, the baby was healed. This photo shows the child two months later, fully recovered. The mum is receiving some items donated by one of the brethren, Jacqueline, from Australia
We continue to thank God for Operation Lift, TTN Australia and TTN Zambia for their ongoing prayers and support. We pray God’s divine protection and provision for them and their families.
