March Prayer Letter

Becca’s Prayer Letter
March 2015

We have a great group of doctors at Kiwoko currently. All are committed Christians and keen to care for patients spiritually as well as physically. They are also sociable and keen to spend time together which is making for a good team attitude and mutual support of one another. The on call commitment continues to be a challenge at times but having a team that pulls together certainly helps.

A recent addition to the Kiwoko services is a transitional care unit. This is a place for the babies who have been on the neonatal unit to stay with their mothers so that the mothers can get used to looking after their babies and prepare for discharge. It also helps to reduce the number of babies on the neonatal unit so that more time can be given to care for the sickest babies.

Last month we started going through Christianity explored with the lab and nursing students. This is done via small groups with 2-3 leaders per group. We have been encouraged to see the students really engaging with the course and developing a deeper understanding of the gospel. We continue to pray for conversions and also that the Christian students would be equipped to share the gospel.

It has been almost a year since we were able to do prison ministry. This was due to red tape and a restriction on access by the government. We have now been granted a licence to continue this ministry so we will be recommencing that in April. There were many exciting things happening amongst prisoners when we were last there so we pray that God would be obviously at work again.

On a personal note, I have withdrawn from my paediatric training in Wales and committed to Kiwoko for the long term. This is both exciting and a bit scary! It has been a process that God had has guided me through and his timing is always perfect. I will be back in the UK for around 4 months from July to complete interviews, raise support and also have some rest. If you would like me to speak at your church then please get in touch.

Prayer points:
• Praise God for a committed group of doctors at Kiwoko
• Pray for fruit from both the Christianity explored course and the prison ministry
• Pray for me as I prepare to stay at Kiwoko long term

Thank you for your ongoing support of myself and Kiwoko Hospital. “We treat, Jesus heals”
