The work continues to expand
RECENTLY OUR TEAM reviewed our work here in northern Mozambique in order to help us decide where to direct future resources. We will continue to prioritise training our 212 health care workers. We are teaching them how to prepare natural medicines to treat injuries and illnesses. Some of our workers do not yet know Jesus but we are seeing their hearts soften.
We also make house visits and some of our patients live in isolated villages. In 12 months our teams has helped treat 40,093 people, many of whom got to hear about Jesus for the very first time!
We are currently caring for 787 orphans in three regions. We provide them with food, medical care, housing, clothing and school materials. We also offer training programmes. We also have prison and radio ministries. We are also giving out MP3 players with the Gospel on them. Through all of these efforts, we tell people of Jesus’ love and of the hope they can have in Him.
We believe 2014 will be a year of new opportunities and open hearts.
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.
