As you can see by this report, health evangelism is working and offers a great way to reach out to the community for the Lord's Kingdom.  We will continue to pray for support for our efforts and for those who still need to be reached.

  1. Miss Cheryl, well done for the good works you are doing. May God bless you for that. Because if I look at the treatment you gave me when I had injury in OAVI. I was amazed, how you took me to Jemima and take care of me till I began to walk and lend me home by your own car. And the next day you came back to my home town again with some medicine, I can see God has choosing you to help we the poor childrens in Africa.
