More than one reason to celebrate
WITH SOME 200 PEOPLE attending, we recently celebrated the opening of our 28th natural health care home. At the celebration, we shared the story of the Good Samaritan and have been so encouraged since to see some of the health care workers reading the Bible together. Our radio programme is also a blessing for the people, educating them on health issues and teaching them biblical principles. Recently, as we spoke about Jesus during a programme, an elderly man began asking many difficult questions. His questions reflect the hunger that this community has for the truth. Please pray that we will know wisdom when answering such questions from those seeking to know the truth.
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.
