With much joy our Cupcini church received news that we would be having a medical clinic at the church September 25-29. Brothers and sisters prayed for this project and invited many of their friends and relatives. Our young people shared 4,000 personal invitations going door-to-door visiting every home in the city. God blessed those efforts for His glory and brought many people to the evening programs. They came to hear the Gospel!
Over three hundred visitors attended evangelistic meetings every evening. We were amazed to see many people come to the evangelistic programs, but did not want to see the doctors at our clinic. They were driven by the hunger for Truth. God touched many hearts of those who repented and trusted our Lord Jesus Christ.
Every morning five doctors from Jackson, MS conducted medical clinics for all the needy people. At the same time our local leaders and volunteers helped in many areas, like teaching inductive Bible studies for the patients, sharing the Gospel visually using Evangecube, presenting personal testimonies, meeting people, directing them through the clinic, answering questions and distributing reading glasses.
We saw people with many physical needs at the clinic and helped them with what God gave us. Some people came with very high blood pressure; others with high blood sugar. Some were recovering from surgeries; others were getting ready for surgery. Some with allergy problems; some with sick children and many with other health problems. It reminded us of the words of our Lord Jesus Christ that said the sick need the doctor, not the healthy. And we were glad to help many with their problems and struggles.
A lady that came to the clinic told us that she was waiting for our clinic since last year. Another person was amazed how well patients are treated. She has never received such attention at any other local hospitals.
We thank God for the passion for sharing the Gospel He gave our brothers and sisters, and for the brothers and sisters from First Baptist Church in Jackson, MS that worked day and night to make this project a blessing to everyone else. With their help and participation we were able to help over two hundred sixty patients.
