Health Care as a door to ministry opportunities among unreached people
MEDICAL CARE AND MISSIONARY ACTIVITY
Research has shown that many unreached people groups, who reject the
gospel upon its presentation, are open to receive medical care, which
they lack. It has also been proven that, while receiving the medical
care, they become tolerant of the gospel being preached to them.
And as the Spirit of God works upon their hearts, conversions have been recorded
and churches planted. Thus to Fresh Anointing Missionary Ministries, health care
is a door to ministry opportunities among people groups. This has given birth to
Fresh Anointing Medical Missions (FAMM), in November 2003 as a medical
missionary arm of this ministry
FAMMs mission field spreads across all unreached peoples group. That is all
those who have not had the opportunity to hear the saving gospel of our Lord
Jesus Christ. However, the present operational area of FAMM is among the
riverine Communities in the Niger-Delta area of Southern Nigeria (which is the
third largest Delta world). The first medical missionary outreach was done in
November 2003 among the Mein dialect of the Ijaw people in Burutu Local
Government area of Delta State with outstanding results.
(a) The specific problems FAMM intends to alleviate or solve include:
(b) The absence of modern medical services among these people groups affect
- i. Women and children (age 0-5) are the most vulnerable group to health
- ii. Childbirth normally takes place in the village with no recourse in the
case of an emergency. Thus every woman dreads the birth of her next child
because she is aware of the dangers.
- iii. The percentage of women who die in labor in this area could be among
the highest in the world.
- iv. Infant mortality rate here could also be among the highest in the world.
- v. Malaria, the most common disease here is a killer as traditional methods
of treating it, are grossly ineffective. Other common diseases here include
Measles, Convulsion, Tuberculosis, Leprosy, diarrhea, dysentery
- vi. Accidents occurring here have to do with the terrain and the occupation
of the people. Thus drowning, falls from trees, machete cut, etc are hardly
- vii. No system of waste disposal-management exists. And as such the people
suffer from pollution (water and air).
- viii. Their only source of water supply is the river, which also serves
WHAT WE ARE DOING
i. Preventive Medicine-
promotion of good health life and empowering of the people to make right
choices for healthy living. An important example here is the provision
of Rain Harvesting Water Tanks for communities in the Niger-Delta.
