Health Care as a door to ministry opportunities among unreached people groups.
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.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
- 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.
- Curative Medicine– this involves the setting up of a hospital (ANOINTING MEDICAL CENTRE) for the treatment of sick people near the CHURCH OF THE ANOINTING in Warri. A mobile boat unit to cover groups of villages is also in operation. Each village is assigned a visitation date. Consultation and basic drugs are provided free for these poor and needy people. Follow up on these is been done by local trained Health Care Workers. We were blessed to be able to bring succor in partnership with a UK based Charity to Emade a young girl born with a foot deformity. Surgery was performed in the UK and is an excellent testimony for the Gospel.
- Promotive Medicine– this is population focused, to influence public health.
