HealthCare Ministries: "Hope that Heals"

HealthCare Ministries is about meeting the realities of impoverishment through the love of Jesus and the hope of the gospel. HealthCare Ministries calls this “Hope that Heals.” Since 1985, HealthCare Ministries has partnered with Assembly of God in-field missionaries to provide impoverished communities with short-term medical, dental, and optical clinics; HIV testing and counseling; culture-specific community health evangelism; health education; disabilities outreaches; and disaster relief. Thanks to your generosity, BGMC has enabled HealthCare Ministries to reach around the world with a heart of compassion and a testimony of love through Jesus Christ.

 

Dear BGMC,

What would we do without BGMC and your giving? For years BGMC’s faithful giving has empowered HealthCare Ministries to take the name of Jesus around the world through medical, optical, and dental clinics, plus health education and community health development.

In one year alone, BGMC funds helped us travel to Honduras, Cameroon, Vanuatu, Romania, the Czech Republic, and the Philippines, offering hope and healing to the hurting.

Honduras

In Honduras, BGMC helped us purchase canoes and life jackets to travel down the Rio Patuca to hold clinics for the indigenous tribes living along the river’s banks. You also paid for the translators that made it possible for these isolated villagers to receive treatment and hear the gospel message.

Many received badly needed help. But the most exciting miracle of all was that seven souls in an unreached people group in Honduras accepted Christ as their personal Savior! The missionary now has an open door to continue visiting the village to disciple the fledgling believers as they grow in their faith.

In one village in Honduras, a Miskito Indian girl named Enad lived in constant pain, with her tooth growing into her nasal cavity.  By God’s grace, one of the HealthCare Ministry team members was an oral surgeon. Enad not only received the surgery she urgently needed but was eager to give her life to the Savior who loved her so much He sent someone to a remote area of Honduras just to make her well. Thank you, BGMC, for giving Enad her smile back–and letting her see God’s love in action.

Cameroon

Here’s another example of how your giving to BGMC has helped: In Cameroon BGMC helped us ship eyeglasses to an outreach in Yaoundé and Douala, where over 1,000 people received optical care they would otherwise have been unable to afford.

Golf Tournament

BGMC event generously sponsored a HealthCare Ministries Golf Tournament, helping make it a great success. The money we raised from the tournament went to purchase medicines, glasses, dental equipment, and supplies for many upcoming outreaches. The money we raised from the tournament also helped us purchase medicines, glasses, dental equipment, and supplies for many upcoming outreaches.

We are so grateful for the boys and girls who give their hard-earned money to help kids around the world. We don’t take your support for granted. You are needed and you are appreciated!

From our HealthCare Ministry to you, thanks for helping us reach the children!
