We are praising God for the opportunity He provided for Gabriel to go to medical school in Kenya. Against the odds, Gabriel was accepted at the Presbyterian University of East Africa three years ago and excelled in his class as an ‘A’ student, studying clinical medicine, surgery and community health.
Today, Sabet and I were able to celebrate this momentous occasion of having Gabriel graduate as a clinical officer (physician’s assistant). We are thrilled to have him return to Tonj as an intern for In Deed and Truth Ministries and serve the Lord under the guidance of Dr. Jono Macleod. Thank you for praying for him.
Gabriel Taking His Oath
How does a 3 year old boy only weigh 13 lbs (6kg)? This is Mabior, he came to our clinic weighing only 6kg because of chronic diarrhea and not enough food at home. He stayed 5 days until his diarrhea had finished and he started putting on weight. Our clinic will do follow up visits weekly until his weight is OK. His mother’s a Christian and prays for Mabior. The past few months people have really struggled for food while they wait for their crops to grow. Our clinic is committed to helping these precious children.
This is the time of year when our clinic is seeing record number of patients. Infant mortality is still one of the highest in the world. Although we appear small in size, do not be deceived…. our little clinic in Tonj is being used by God in BiG ways!! He is taking our ‘loaves and fishes’ and multiplying it to provide medial care to thousands of vulnerable women and children every month. We never know how we will get there but somehow we always do. This week alone critical medicine arrived the day we ran out!!
These children were fighting for their lives and hanging on by a breath and through prayer and treatment they made miraculous recoveries but even better, their families turned their hearts towards God.
