Outreach in Ethiopia

Ashley Wilkins

Medical Outreach Coordinator

The medical outreach that we conducted in Ethiopia was a huge success. During the three days of the outreach, we saw almost 3,000 patients and had 100 souls come to the Lord. Our OB/GYN surgeon saved a woman’s life today when she came in and had to have an emergency c-section. There were many complications with her case that the local doctor could not have handled, so since our surgeon was there, the woman lived.

We also witnessed two miracles. We had a ten year old blind boy come in to the clinic. His dad was asking for medicine to make him better. Since there is no medicine for blindness, our prayer team prayed over him for thirty minutes and when he opened his eyes, he could see! He saw his father for the first time in his life and the father just broke down in tears. We also had a twelve year old boy come in with his father. The boy was crippled and could not walk. After getting prayed for, he straightened his crippled limbs and walked out of the clinic!

God is so good. He always shows up and exhibits His great love to the people that come to our outreaches. Thank the Lord for His faithfulness and thank you to everyone who make these outreaches possible!
