Medical Mission

On Sunday 18th Nov, 2012 our Church organized a medical mission to Latter Rain Church (LRC) at Sematan.  This is a village church about one and half hours drive from Kuching.

It was the second medical mission for our Church this year.  The main objective was to serve and connect with communities surrounding the city of Kuching.  Medical mission is a good way to serve our communities.  Our Church have a numbers of medical doctors in various fields.  Different medical "clinics" were set up in the Church which was temporally converted into a clinic.  We had Dr.Tiong, the eye specialist, Dr.H.T Wong, Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist, Dr.Chen, gynaecologist, Dr.Lee, Radiologist (untra sound), Dr. C C Wong, Bone specialist, and a new doctor, Dr.Carice Wong who is the daughter of Dr.H.T Wong and Sis Chuei Lian.

Two of our Church Life Groups as well as our Bahasa Church were there to help the doctors as well as to pray for the patients.

Several SEGI university's nursing students were also there to help out.  At the same time they had some practical experiences.

From observation, the numbers of patients attended to by our doctors probably around 100 people or so.  The doctors and trainee nurses were kept busy from around 10.15 am to 3 pm with about half hour lunch break.  The LRC church members cooked various local dishes for us.

Dr. C, C Wong presented about 40 children Bibles to the LRC. 

Their church is in the process of building a training school and some of our members donated to help with this project.

Praise God for the good weather as well as a successful medical mission.
