In Nigeria an exciting project is underway. A group of workers from GRN Nigeria, led by the Rev Kish Hai Bai, and a medical team led by Dr Joshua Gyede Giyan, are working together with the aim of healing people both physically and spiritually.
In doing this they are following in the footsteps of Jesus, their Saviour, who, when he was here on earth, was known as the great healer: healing bodies, minds and souls. When he healed a paralysed man, Jesus said, "Is it easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or 'Stand up and walk'? So I will prove to you that the Son of Man has the authority on earth to forgive sins." (Luke 5:23-24 NLT) Similarly, this Nigerian project aims to glorify God by offering healing just as Jesus did - physically and spiritually.
The brainchild of Rev Kish Bai, he started the medical outreach only a few years ago. In his local community he saw many people suffering with malaria along with a high incidence of glaucoma, tumours, ulcers and other diseases. He realised the provision of medical help could break down cultural barriers and allow the Gospel to reach people who otherwise might be resistant to God's word.
Despite the difficulties created by the Covid-19 pandemic, the GRN Nigeria team is still planning to hold this annual Medical Outreach in December 2020. The medical services are provided by qualified doctors and other medical staff free of charge to all who are in need.
However, medicines, medical supplies and food are needed. Also, the GRN Nigeria team has need for flipcharts and mp3 players to distribute the Gospel to local people in their languages and dialects.
GRN Australia is hoping to send $7,000 to cover all these costs. Please pray for the GRN Nigeria Medical Outreach, that many people would receive physical healing, and that they would also hear the Gospel in their own language and come to know Jesus, the ultimate Healer.
