During the month of December, hospital ministry was characterised by God’s Compassion and Grace, which moved us to preach and provide support to the patients and workers at Mine hospitals and Kabwe General Hospital.
Beginning at 9:00am and continuing on until 2:00pm on December 18th 2010, we had prayer and fasting, focusing on seeking out God’s promises for us.
Implementation of the Activities (Ministry)
The ministry at Kabwe General Hospital, during the month of December 2010, was extremely challenging and demanding. This created a need for other churches to participate, both spiritually and physically.
The opportunities to minister to people, or even just assist them, are endless. We are continually presented with God ordained circumstances, in which we can step in and lend a hand. We came across a woman using crutches, whose leg had been amputated, and were able to help. Small acts of kindness speak volumes, especially for those to whom kindness is a foreign concept.
We ministered to a man who gave his life to the Lord after getting involved in a traffic accident between two towns, during which he lost his clothes. We were able to assist him by giving him a pair of trousers, as well as a shirt and jacket.
We have been able to share the Word of God to those who are in desperate need of Christ’s hope. Providing deliverance to many patients who had been saved was a common and overwhelming sight.
We count it as a great privilege to be able to continue preaching God’s Word to all whom the Lord has put in our path. We feel blessed to be able to provide spiritual, physical, financial and social support to those who need it, all by the Grace of God.
God’s hand is evident in the work we are doing. During this period, we saw great things through God’s Compassion and the following are just a couple –
A patient was admitted with a serious blood related condition. After prayer, she was healed and discharged.
Another patient was re-admitted to Kabwe Mine Hospital as a result of anemia. Prayer saw her healed and discharged.
