“Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.” 2 Corinthians 9:11

 

Like MedSend grant recipients from the U.S., MedSend National grant recipients are eager to answer God’s call to serve – and grateful for the chance to so. As you can see from their messages below, they thank God for the MedSend supporters who make it possible for them to get the advanced medical training and Christian mentoring they need to serve their fellow citizens more effectively.  We think you’ll agree that it’s exciting to be part of this team of believers who are from many nations, but are all united with a single purpose: to bring essential healthcare and the Good News of Jesus Christ to every nation!


Dear MedSend friends,Kositany

I am grateful for the support from MedSend for me to pursue my training. Thank you for working with us in enlarging God’s kingdom, only eternity will reveal the far-reaching effect you have for the cause of Christ by making His love known to me through your kind support.  We heartily appreciate your support.

Every day of my training, is like awakening to the call of the harvest being plenty and the laborers being few.  The patients I get to attend to in my day daily duties reminds me that the world is hurting and in need of someone to point them to the Savior Jesus Christ.  Through your support I have been able to administer Christ’s Love through my practice and I am challenged when I talk to them about the saving grace in Jesus. In the midst of their pain, they listen to me and are always eager to know more about Jesus.  I praise God for giving me this opportunity to be a laborer in His vineyard!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

How amazing our Father is! I have never met you, and you have never met me. However, our lives are connected tightly for one Kingdom, and one passion.

It is a busy year. With your help, I graduated from my family medicine training program this April. Just after the graduation, I was invited by a Christian clinic in this country to join their board for future plans for the Kingdom. The clinic has been set up by medical missionaries from your country, and it has been witnessing the Lord’s goodness in my country for years. I know Father has a higher plan for us, even though sometimes we don’t see. I can definitely say that this clinic has been a witness in that city.

An international ministry to teach Christian doctors to share the Good News with their patients invited me to join them. After a lot of prayers and talking to other missionaries, I decided to jump in. I am excited about how Father would use this team to bless this land. Actually in the past five years, this project has approached over 1,000 Christian doctors in this land. I will also help part-time in a large government hospital. By God’s grace, almost the whole department is Christian. I don’t see them as a government hospital department, but a ministry of the Kingdom.

It is amazing that 10 years ago when I was still in medical college, I didn’t see any Christians around me; but now, many medical students and doctors have become Christians. Since I see that so many doctors have become Christians, there is a great need to train them medically and spiritually. Therefore, I am also involved in a ministry that focuses on community medical service and training the next generation of Christian doctors.

I share all of this with you to encourage you that Father is doing a great work in this country, and you are involved. It is a Kingdom project, not a country project. All the things happening here cannot happen without your participation. I am so thankful for your generosity to me, and to the Kingdom. All the ministries are too big for any one of us, but our Lord is big enough for anything.

In Christ,
