Fourteen years ago, with tears running down my cheeks, my life as a follower of the living God started.

Now as a dentist some 19 mission trips later, I’m called to go with JVMI to the outermost parts of the world.  Mizoram, India sure feels like the outermost parts, but once you are there, wow!

This people group was by far the one that touched my heart the most. They are so giving, caring, thoughtful, and considerate. I know I’m the one who is supposed to give and to help, but I couldn’t have out-given these people.  They let us into their lives, their culture, and their way of caring.  I can’t wait to go again.

I am an outdoorsman by heart, so when I heard that Jewish Voice was doing a medical outreach to the remote mountains of northeast India, staying in tents and eating backpacker meals, I jumped at the opportunity.

JVMI’s International Medical Director Dr. Everett Holley told us that each member of this team was just as important as any other, that if any one part broke down, the whole would suffer. I was reminded of 1 Corinthians 12:12-26, where the apostle Paul talks about the Body of Christ. That is a big reason why I will continue to support and participate with Jewish Voice. (more…)

Upon growing up in a reformed Jewish household and accepting Yeshua as my Messiah almost six years ago, I could have never imagined the mighty situations He would place in my path.

My first trip to India with Jewish Voice, I went as a nurse to provide care to the people of Mizoram. After working the first morning, I was invited to come assist in the Prayer Room for what I thought would be a very short period of time. However, God had different plans, and I ended up staying in the Prayer Room for the entire clinic.

God was moving so powerfully that it was hard to keep up with the miracles taking place! Deaf ears unstopped, eyes received complete clarity, heart murmurs disappeared, tumors evaporated, countless broken hearts mended, the lame and the paralyzed walked out, and the angels rejoiced in heaven as salvations occurred!

Mizoram Medical Outreach: Day Three

By Lavi Matesan, Reporter
March 3, 2010

It is day three of our first Jewish Voice medical clinic in Mizoram, India. We will only be able to treat patients for half the day today here in Serchhip, because we must spend the rest of the day tearing down our camp and transporting medical supplies and staff to our next medical clinic location in Saitual.

This won’t be our first time in Saitual. We first traveled to this village in 2008, bringing food to needy Jewish People there. Rats had completely decimated their crops, causing a severe famine.

Today we plan on seeing some 500 patients before we leave for Saitual. So far, our staff of around 33 has seen 2, 950 patients during our two-and-a-half day medical clinic in Serchhip. And we estimate that number will increase to more than 3,000 by the end of our first clinic.

Our prayer team has seen God move mightily among those suffering with various pains, witnessing God’s healing touch. The team believes that God will completely heal all who came for prayer today.
