Connecting The Dots...

November 4, 2014

Last time we shared about our container:

  • The need for equipment and supplies to send to our hospital
  • No medical missionaries due to evacuations.
  • The ongoing, continuing need for doctors and a surgeon to lead our hospital.

God used our current team members and MCWA Bintus (from the Tribe of Bintu, meaning he has “Been To” Meskine!) to share our need with our network of physicians and agencies. And the need was great.

Remember that young African surgeon? His mentor in his residency was a US surgeon, Dr. Jim Brown, who happened to be an MCWA Bintu.

The same young African man, Dr. Nesoah, who was training to be a surgeon for the last three years, was praying for God to use him at the time we were praying about updating our surgical suites. God answers prayer! In April 2014, this new surgeon and his mentor, along with their wives, visited the hospital. Scott and Lee Pyles received their guests and introduced them to our staff and our patients. The visit went well and Dr. Nesoah and his wife Joy agreed to join the staff of Hopital de Meskine in September 2014 upon the completion of his surgical residency.

Although today we cannot send Americans to do the work at the hospital, God is providing Africans for the physical and spiritual needs in the Far North. As Dr. Nesoah adjusts to his new life in Meskine as a surgeon, we are able to send them a LARGE container of medical supplies that will only enhance the work the Dr. Nesoah is doing at the hospital.

For He is faithful…God heard every prayer that was offered to him for our hospital, and in His perfect timing, orchestrated these events. We have the privilege of testifying to His goodness and His work in process in Cameroon.

MCWA remains accountable for the ministry that is ongoing at the hospital in Meskine, although our missionaries are not there. It is still a huge platform for our as we connect with our target people group. God is using Africans on our staff to minister to the lost as they connect bedside with our patients. Our desire is to continue to disciple and equip believers to be the hands and feet of Christ in Cameroon.

The container should arrive early January, 2015. Pray that God would continue to be in these details, so that His name would be magnified.
