Supplies for our Manipur medical clinic.

DATELINE: India

I am in India awaiting our group’s arrival tomorrow for our Jewish Voice Manipur medical mission. Back in Manipur, the team is continuing medical clinic preparations.

We are facing new challenges with this year’s clinic as it has been raining almost every day while we have been preparing the clinic. While the rain is cooling temperatures, it is causing some unique obstacles. We have come up with some great solutions to ensure we have a successful clinic.

Please Pray for the Following:
1. Safe travels for our team
2. Health of our team
3. Unity among our team members
4. All of our luggage to arrive safely
5. Our Ethiopian medical professionals to arrive safely from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
6. That we would not incur any customs fines
7. That our team can have a peaceful rest before continuing on to Manipur the next morning
8. Internet connectivity in Manipur has been down, so please pray that there is a quick solution for this problem

Praise Reports:
1. We have been able to secure a slit lamp in country, so our eye surgery team has all of their supplies needed to operate.

Thank you for all your prayers and support throughout this outreach. The Lord has continued to provide for us, and we are believing for amazing stories and testimonies from this outreach.

Great day for a weary but joyful team as we all reunite at the hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Part of the team went to the Jewish Voice medical clinic site to pack up, while a majority came back to Addis. The roads were treacherous and we were not sure that the larger vehicles could pass.

We are now preparing for a wonderful Shabbat meal together and some much-needed rest. Final numbers for the medical clinic to follow.

Consider joining us on a Jewish Voice medical mission as a volunteer!  All throughout the year, we host international medical outreaches for underprivileged Jewish communities in remote parts of Africa and India that feature free treatment for medical, eye, and dental conditions. Our five-day clinics bring not only physical healing through medicine and medical procedures, but also spiritual healing through sharing the Gospel of Yeshua and through prayer. You don’t have to be a medical professional to raise your own support and come on a humanitarian outreach with us; you just need to be willing to serve with a heart of compassion. Sign up for an upcoming outreach.

The last day of our Jewish Voice Hosanna medical clinic brought plenty of challenges; many of the team are still on a bus, which is stuck in the mud! Yet attitudes are still great.

Today we saw 2,498 patients in our clinic, and the total patients we were able to help during our clinic was 9,398! Our numbers are still incomplete on those who visited the prayer room.

Tomorrow we will pack up and head back to Addis Ababa.

Staggering Results of Jewish Voice’s First Ethiopia Medical Clinic Outreach

AddisAbaba Outreach2010_23By Melissa Johnston,

We started holding discipleship classes during the clinic week for the new Believers. The classes were held at the local Messianic congregation and more than 400 people attended during the week. More than 300 prayed to receive Yeshua as their Messiah after attending the class. Praise the Lord for the people who have come to realize that He is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6)!

About half of our team attended the Shabbat service on Friday night to celebrate with the congregation all that the Lord accomplished this week. (more…)

Honored to Serve: Last Day of Clinic in Addis

DATELINE: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

We had a special morning devotion on Friday that provided confirmation for our team of the impact they had on the community.

The Health Center’s Board attended our meeting and presented our team with a certificate of appreciate and a traditional hammer pot as a gift. They mentioned how honored they were to have the team serve their community and invited us to return to continue on with our great work. JVMI also presented the board with a plaque and dedicated the ramp and staircase that was built last year for the clinic, and the railing that was built this year to complete the project. Our entire volunteer staff then posed on the staircase for our group photo.

We ended the clinic day by treating as many patients as we could before closing the clinic and packing up our equipment. (more…)
