In cooperation with local officials and doctors, a Bridge of Hope center in India held a free medical camp September 3, offering love and hospitality to people in the villages. Approximately 230 individuals, many of whom were parents of Bridge of Hope children, came to the camp. Those who attended had the opportunity to receive check-ups from the doctors and take home vitamin A and de-worming tablets.
In rural India, many people suffer from vitamin deficiency and have little access to necessary medical education and care. Free medical camps, like this one, show them that the Lord is concerned about their needs.
Not wanting to miss out on the action, a local news channel rushed to the Bridge of Hope center to report the event. They interviewed the local officials and a Gospel for Asia-supported pastor who helped oversee the program, Bhisma Subba.
Hearing about and witnessing the work of Bridge of Hope made an impression on the reporters, doctors and local officials present. Truly, God is using this ministry to touch not only children and their families but also the general public!
Gospel for Asia-supported leaders in the area request prayer for the following:
- the Bridge of Hope staff, who worked very hard for the program’s success.
- Pastor Bhisma Subba and his family—that God will continue to use them to effectively lead the ministry in this area
- the doctors and local officials who came to the camp—that the Gospel will touch their lives
