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.

Medical Missions Campaign to Dono-Manga, Chad

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!
