VMC outreach report
The VMC Abuja Ministry Center carried out a far-reaching medical outreach in collaboration with the LoveWorld Graduate Network in the Galadimawa community Abuja FCT, Nigeria. Here many non-communicable diseases have been identified as key health problems. This was based on a comprehensive assessment of the needs of this community. As a result, there was a need to provide health education and free screening for chronic medical conditions like hypertension and diabetes mellitus by the dedicated team of volunteers.
Residents were also educated in ways to prevent exposure and the spreading of the Lassa virus. This virus is the cause of a public health concern known as Lassa Fever. As a result of the caring ministration, 53 souls were won to Christ. Each new soul received copies of the daily devotional known as ‘Rhapsody of Realities’ and a book entitled ‘Now That You Are Born Again To The Glory Of God.’
Taking care of body and soul
The Buea Chapter of the VMC carried out a mega outreach to the patients of the Buea Regional Hospital, Cameroon. In all hospitals across the globe visitors who provide comfort and words of encouragement are an important part of the healing process.
The volunteers visited 230 patients during their outreach. They also distributed 140 copies of the Rhapsody of Realities daily devotional and gave out lots of gift items to the sick. There is no doubt that this will aid their recovery. The spirit of the Holy Ghost was felt by many and this resulted in 120 souls being won to Christ.
