2012 Kenya Medical Mission: The Team Speaks Blog 2

Say it ain't so.....the team is already gone.

It's so hard to believe how many months the team spent preparing to serve in Kenya, and yet as you read this blog the team has already returned to the US.  Wow!   Where did time go?  The old saying still rings true, "time flies when you're having fun."

Well, even though the team has returned safely, to the US, we want to provide ministry updates and words from the field.

Day Two of the Camp in Loruko:


"It was truly a morning to see my team members as they compassionately tended to the physical needs and spiritual hunger of this very remote community.  It is also humbling to see how the people of Loruko, living in such harsh conditions, still can see the joy of the Lord in their lives.”  -  Dr. Mike G.

“Today is day two of our medical mission with the people of Loruko in Isiolo Kenya.  As the morning began I was full of excitement and anticipation of what God was going to do on this day.  I continue to be amazed at God’s work through dentistry at the hand of the skilled yet humble Dr. Mike Givens.  My day ended with an introduction by my fellow team member Ramel to Pastor John, we prayed for him and seeing his heartfelt response to our prayer I was blessed by the presence of God.”  -  Roy W.


Patients wait to see a physician.
“As an American physician, with the best training (three degrees, Board Certified) I thought that I came prepared to treat most illnesses.  Today, I realized that sometimes people need really simple things like a $2 pair of bifocals.  All the training in the world didn’t compare to how humble this made me feel.  Every physician should have this experience.”  -  Dr. Linda G.

Wrapping up Day Two!

Evangelism & Education...

The Evangelism Team educates the community about Christ and HIV/AIDS Education.

The following prayer was written by the translator who assisted Min. Alonzo with Evangelism and Education.  What a blessing and an honor for Min. Alonzo to receive such a heartfelt prayer.  Wow God!

“Prayer for our pastors, priests, evangelists, bishops, sisters, brothers, seminaries, church leaders, parents, teachers, community members, sponsors and our benefactors who are with us.  Lord Jesus, I pray that you bless our visitors together with my best companion friend Evangelist Alonzo.  These visitors sacrificed their time so that they come here in Kenya to share, learn and also treat sick people which is a good job and I promise that a great reward is kept for them in heaven and I do pray that the work of their hands is blessed.  Whenever they go to their destinations make their journey to be safe and guide them with the power of the Holy Spirit and I am sure they have learned a lot here in Kenya and their relatives and children will be very happy because they would be told a lot because we learn from others.  I pray you in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.”

Stay tuned for more updates.....

  3. When considering potential doctors for treatment, it is important that you put in time finding a physician who will make treatment a less daunting experience as remaining in a constant state of fear will hinder the effectiveness of treatment.http://www.md247.com/md247-blog/category/2-telemedicine-.html
