Blessed to be a blessing
SINGING, DANCING, HEARING God’s word and playing games together – this was our fun day spent with healthcare workers from four different districts. These workers do such a great job, serving their fellow villagers with natural medicine, without receiving a salary.
Papa Paulino, supervisor of the healthcare houses in the Memba district, tells the story of a man in one village, who would constantly run away, apparently driven by demons. He asked the man’s family if he could pray for him in Jesus’ name, and they agreed. So he prayed, and later he heard from a fellow villager that the man had been delivered. Praise God! He is great and we want to see more miracles happening! We have all been blessed, therefore let us be a blessing to others.
Myriam is a trained pediatric nurse and has worked in Monapo under Maziotela Ministries (started by the Ayling family who also works with WO) since March 2004. Specialist areas include preventive medicine, first aid and a project aimed at feeding the homeless, especially children. Myriam began using natural medicine in Maziotela in August of 2004. She is training local paramedics using teaching material from Anamed (Action Natural Medicine).
The three Mozambicans receive their training from Myriam. The literature and teaching material is supplied by Anamed. These paramedics work on a voluntary basis in groups of 3 to 10 people. To avoid corruption and promote a high quality of treatment, they work in shifts.
In August 2007 the paramedics who were trained between 2004 and 2006 and who are already employed, received goats. They breed the goats to stem the extreme poverty so that they can produce an income for their own needs.
