Medical Missionary Training & Outreach


Ministry of Healing, p. 143.  “Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me.’”

Early 2011 Kibidula invited L.I.G.H.T. (Lay Institute for Global Health Training) to do some medical missionary training in the Lay Evangelism School.  The program was very well received and L.I.G.H.T. was invited to return for additional teaching in June and July.

 

From there, Kibidula has expanded the medical missionary training to be both part of the Lay Evangelism program each session and also as  a mobile training program.

The Medical Missionary team helped conduct 12 health expos from March 2012-April 2013.  Some were in the largest city in Tanzania and some were in remote villages.  At each location they were very well received.

 

Single-day teachings, weekend programs, week-long programs and even 1-month programs were conducted in 13 different mobile locations from March 2012 – April 2013 (again from the largest cities to smaller villages.)

The current goals of this program, in addition to the local and mobile trainings and health expos, are to translate the teaching material into Swahili, create Swahili health tracts, and create low cost health outreach resources.

Current Needs: vehicle, translators, helpers, and prayers
