Possibility of a new ministry.

There has been something on my heart for a long time, but my trip to Mali has confirmed a ministry that we need to start.  I have no idea how I will start this ministry or how we will run it but it is a major ministry, that can and will produce great fruit.  We would like to start a health clinic.  While in Mali, we found out that one of the churches had began to run health clinics in nearby villages.  Because of this they were able to start 5 churches (mostly in Muslim areas).  They have 11 other villages that are begging for churches but they lack pastors.

It would be great if we could have a doctor or a nurse that could be a missionary here.  If not we will try to get someone trained here, to do this ministry.  My plan is to create a health clinic, a building, in Ouagadougou.  Then once or twice a month we will take the workers from this clinic and go to villages for 2-3 days, treat the people physcially and also spiritually, by preaching the word.

In Ivory Coast a few years back, we had two days where we had held a health clinic.  This was in a Muslim village.  We treated over 500 people.  We had over 350 come to a night preaching service, with over 300 of them being Muslim.  This is a great way to open up hearts to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Sounds like a great opportunity to reach many more souls with the gospel. We will definitely be praying here Bro. Keith. May God continue to bless all you do in serving Him.

    Thanks for your prayers. I heard a great man of God say, do as much as you can, walk as far as you can and when you can’t do anymore, leave the rest in Gods hands. He is wonderful. What a joy to serve Him.
