Kawama Mission and Health Post
Work on the Kawama Clinic Annex is progressing well considering the very heavy rains and flooding in surrounding areas. Builders are constructing wood roof frames in preparation for the iron roof sheets. Following this, work will begin on plastering and painting, and installing windows and doors. We are 'finishing strong' while cautious to build securely and with safety as a main concern.
In a period of three months (November through January) 3,600 patient visits were recorded and treated for primary care needs. The first two COVID 19 occurrences were reported at our second mission post at Kateneka where two Christian teachers were infected. In Kawama two mothers delivered their babies along the side of the road due to the heavy rains as they were not able to make it to the clinic - mothers and babies were later treated at the clinic and discharged.
Thank you for your kindness toward those in foreign lands. Jesus commissioned His discipled to go to all nations to preach the gospel. By rendering aid to people in distress we show that we are interested in the fulness of their lives; spiritual and physical. Jesus and His disciples did 'good works' as they went from place to place and set an example for us. Our work at the Kateneka Mission and School and Kawama Mission and Clinic has caught the eye of local officials and they are grateful. By our 'acts of kindness' we help ensure a secure footing for the proclamation of God's word with the hope that many in rural areas will be drawn to Jesus Christ.
