O Bom Samaritano
AFTER OUR church-planting seminar in Nampula we had a great, special seminar with our health care workers. We were taught from the Word of God and learned how to share the Gospel with our friends, family and neighbours. We also learned how to start a small Bible study. It was a quality time together. We were able to share with one another our prayer requests and the different struggles we were each facing. One of the health workers has already reported back that he has started sharing the Good News. Praise the Lord! It was such a productive time that we plan to have a second seminar soon.
We now have 48 health care houses and seven more will be starting up this year. Please pray for the work of O Bom Samaritano, that we will experience God’s grace and all the glory will be given to Him. May more people be healed in body, soul and spirit.
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.
