Hope Springs will be teaming up with CMI Medical Missions for a large scale medical mission to Dono-Manga, Chad early next year. The team will consist of medical Doctors, Dentist and other medical support personnel. Dr. Eni from Maiduguri, Nigeria, who is on the teaching staff of the training hospital there, will also be joining us. Of first importance will be to assess the medical needs of each of the 41 orphans at our orphanage and the rest of the 325 students enrolled in the newly establish school. After that our team will treat as many as possible from the community during the remainder of our stay.
Our dispensary in Dono-Manga has been seeing about 150 people per month many coming from great distances as the word continues to spread. This campaign will no doubt bring more attention to the help that is available in this very remote area of the nation of Chad and greatly increase the opportunity to share the message of Christ as well.
Efforts are underway to be sure the dispensary is stocked with the necessary drugs to cover this special trip when as many as a thousand people may be seen. Many of those who will be treated would never have the opportunity to see a doctor without an effort like this.
It is such a pleasure to work with true professionals in an effort like this. Directors Todd Moore and Dr. Matthew Tincher are experienced leaders and have made numerous medical mission trips, some of the most recent to Haiti and Honduras.
We solicit your prayers for this upcoming trip as there will be difficult days of travel to and from Dono-Manga, and long hot days of ministry to those in need.
