Our ministry is at a 220 bed, multi-service hospital. I am an OBGYN working primarily on maternity, women's ward, ambulatory care and for surgical care and management. We are glad to welcome 2 new doctors (until the end of 2019 were were the only physicians at the hospital), and are now doing more training and educating the new doctors and our nurse clinicians. We have opportunities to share the Gospel with our patients (most of the opportunities are with terminally ill patients) as well as the way the Gospel can transform the way we work (this is mostly with our colleagues). Our presence at the mission hospital (administered by the Igreja Evangelico Sinodal de Angola, and Protestant Angolan church denomination) allows the ministry arm of the church to grow, and for the pastors and chaplains to minister to our many patients!
If we did not have the MedSend grant we would not be able to do our ministry here!
