Healing body, soul and spirit
WE SERVE A MIGHTY GOD! Our ministry, O Bom Samaritano, now has 190 health care workers and 39 health care clinics! I have such a great team! We are working to treat people with, and educate them about, natural medicines.
Our radio programme has been a blessing to many. Co-worker Martin Schumann teaches listeners about the word of God and Papa Paulino teaches them about health. Please pray for this ministry that reaches 200,000 people!
Recently I joined Papa Paulino on a visit to the local prison. I spoke about God’s word and Jesus’s forgiveness. One of the men had tears in his eyes as he asked God to forgive him of his sins. I was so moved!
If everything works out as we hope, my colleague Deborah and I will soon move to Mossuril to work with the Macua Nahara people. Please pray for us! Please also pray for the malnourished babies and for the orphans in our programmes, and for a good rainy season that will help people to have a bountiful harvest!
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.
