Ministry in Mozambique

Ian Chamberlain, a member of Abundant Life Fellowship, spent 10 days in April in Mozambique, returning to his home in Columbiana on April 15. A registered nurse, Ian went with the Doctors on Call group out of Times Square Church in New York City.  A highlight for Ian was that he got to help deliver seven babies, something he specifically had prayed for. Normally there about seven babies born in a month. One mother, the one in pink, named her son after Ian. That close-up shot is baby Ian. Look here for more details from Ian's trip soon.


Dave and Ellen Conrad of Salem spent time recently working at Hospital Shalom, a non-profit missionary hospital in San Benito, Peten, Guatemala.
Ellen, a retired culinary arts teacher and owner of a cooking school, taught the women how to cook and bake - they had never seen pie - and Dave, an East Fairfield Coal retiree, made repairs around the facility.
They worked closely with Tim and Doris Spurrier, who have been ministering to the needs of Guatemalans since 1988 and who started the hospital project in the remote Peten jungle in 1996. It took 10 years, and the hospital opened in 2006. The hospital is five miles from the International Airport Mundo Maya and 35 miles from the ancient Mayan ruins of Tikal.
The hospital building project is a ministry of New Covenant World Missions. Click the link to find out more about it and the organization.
