Enjoying God’s blessings
HE LORD CONTINUES to bless our ministry to the remote, poor villages here in northern Mozambique. There are now 32 health care posts, and natural medicine education happening in four districts. There are now 155 health care workers, treating more than 32,500 people in their village homes, including 557 orphans. We have a nutritional program of milk and porridge that regularly helps 190 babies and young children. Fernando, a new believer who was recently baptised, is one of our faithful and hardworking health care workers. He trains other workers, visits and treats sick people in their homes, and has a ministry program to orphans.
Once a month, our team visit two prisons to share the Word of God, and share some food and medicines. Our radio program helps us reach more villages with teaching on natural medicines and team member Martin Schumann also shares Bible lessons via the same radio program. All praise to the Lord for His continued blessing and provision of such a great team of leaders and co-workers. Please keep us all in your prayers.
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.
