Opening Hearts in Mozambique

Wade Hosseini – Medical Outreach Coordinator

We recently held a medical/dental outreach for the first time in the country of Mozambique, Africa in conjunction with Iris Ministries. The area of Mozambique where we held our clinics is predominantly Muslim and we initially encountered strong opposition from local government and health officials. But that was not enough to stop the plan of God, which included us seeing this precious 7 year old girl who came to us very ill and weak due to a severe infection. She had cut open her foot on a piece of wood and as a result had a severe bacterial infection that was spreading quickly. Left untreated, she would have most likely died. We were able to clean the wound and administer antibiotics; she was on her way to a complete recovery the very next day. 

Not only were we able to provide much needed medical care to over 1,500 people on this outreach, but by the end of the week of clinics we saw a change in the hearts of the local government and health officials toward the local people. As a result of this outreach, groundwork has been laid and doors have been opened for Iris Ministries to provide additional love and care to the people of the region. Thanks to our partners and friends for making this outreach possible, and to our faithful volunteers who give of themselves on these outreaches to be the hands of Christ extended around the world.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
