DATELINE: Hosanna, Ethiopia

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.

Our largest numbers this week occurred today at the Jewish Voice medical clinic in Hosanna, Ethiopia—more than 2,000 patients and nearly 900 expressions of faith in Yeshua! Hundreds from the Gefat community came to experience the historic launch of the only Messianic congregation in the region! Jonathan Bernis, President and CEO of Jewish Voice Ministries International, and I challenged the people to exalt the name of Yeshua.

Monday, Feb. 25, 2013

The team arrived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Saturday, February 23, with approximately 25 clinic bags of humanitarian aid. The bags cleared customs without incurring any fees. Praise Adonai!

On Sunday, the team attended a local worship service before going to the clinic site for clinic orientation and set-up.

Today, we started the day with praise and worship and a morning devotional by our JVMI Africa Director, who provided encouragement for the team as we prepared to treat the numerous people in line outside the clinic. Our JVMI Africa Medical Director provided instructions to our international and local team before opening the clinic. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness as we had a record-breaking first day!

Rusty Clarke’s Photos of Our Zimbabwe Medical Outreach

These photos were taken by Rusty Clarke, who volunteers with Jewish Voice often for our medical outreaches. During our first-ever medical clinic to the Lemba tribe of Zimbabwe, Rusty wore two hats: his usual prayer room intercessor role and our trip photographer. And – wow! – what a blessing Rusty is! We hope you will be just as inspired as we are and just as excited about what God is doing in this new remote place.

Sign for the eye and dental clinics in Gondar, EthiopiaBy Jonathan Gannon,
Jewish Voice Director of Global Outreach

Our entire team departed for Gondar, Ethiopia, on Thursday morning, September 29, 2011, for the first round of work at our free medical clinic to the poor Jewish communities there.

Benjamin and Jeremy have been working tirelessly on the clinic operations, hiring of the clinic workers, and ensuring that all supplies were shipped in a timely fashion.

Our Africa directors, Mezmur and Dr. Adane, found our new clinic site for us to use. They have been working very hard over the past few months to ensure all our customs documents were in order, our arriving doctors had Ethiopian medical licenses, and all the group logistics were ready for our arrival.
