Hope Springs International Teaming Up With CMI Medical Missions For Medical Campaign

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.

Todd has been with Murfreesboro based National HealthCare Corporation for over 15 years.

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.

Matt is the medical director for the Emergency Department at Horizon Medical Center in Dickson, TN.

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.

Praise God for Those Who Sponsor Our Kids In Dono-Manga, Chad

I know when it comes to sponsoring a child thousands of miles away across an ocean there are those who question, “Is it really worth it?” There are many great organizations out there and I can’t speak for them, but I know firsthand the value of child sponsorship in our orphanage in Dono-Manga, Chad. I have held some of them in my arms and I have looked into the eyes of the rest. Months before our arrival in Dono-Manga back in the Fall of 2010 I had a group picture of these orphans on my screen saver. Every day for months I had looked into their eyes and wondered how we could make a difference in their lives. On the morning when we arrived in Dono-Manga the children began to gather and one by one I began to recognize the faces from my screen saver. They were real. They were orphans. They needed our help.

God used two families to provide the orphanage and farm compound that we had only dreamed about. So far seven Godly women have stepped up to sponsor seven of our 41 kids. Even though we still have a number of children who need sponsors I have seen the dramatic change in their faces. But the question we began with was, “Is it really worth it?”

While we can’t see the future there are many examples out there of the successes of programs like ours. Allow me to share one success story that may cause you to consider sponsoring one of our kids. This is a story that was shared at a Catalyst convention about someone helped by Compassion International.

You can sponsor one of our children for only $100.00 per month. Half sponsorship for only $50.00. Contact us at: hopespringsinternational@yahoo.com or by mail: Hope Springs International, 118 Wessington Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075. Only God knows the value of your investment in a child.
