A Medical Missions campaign team, sponsored by Healing Hands International, recently returned from Dono-Manga, Chad. Among the 10 Team members were Steve Worley, Jos School of Biblical Studies; Dr. Bob Whittaker, Nigerian Christian Hospital; Dr. Emmanuel Eni, Maiduguri University Hospital and a Deacon with the Wulari Jerusalem Church of Christ; and Ebenezer Udofia, representative for Healing Hands International/Hope Springs International.
The medical team held a clinic to meet the needs of over 130 villagers. 160+ mosquito nets were distributed with material to treat the nets.
A drip irrigation workshop was conducted with 20 students and 20 observers attending. Learning the skills of dry season farming will enable these villagers to raise crops year round and not just during the short 3 month rainy season.
While the journey was filled with challenges of vehicle mechanical problems, oppressive heat, and travel over barely passable roads, many were helped and 12 precious souls came to Christ and were baptized.
Hope Springs International is now making arrangements to drill 15 new wells and repair 6 wells that have been out-of-service for years in Dono-Manga. Details concerning this phase of our work in Dono-Manga will be forth coming, so check back often!
