Ethiopia (IAI/MNN) ― Medicine plays a pivotal role for missions in Africa.
As International Aid distributes life-saving medicines, hygiene products, nutritional supplements and medical equipment to partners serving the poor, their teams will often work with compassionate humanitarian relief organizations that are like-minded in mission.
Physical healing is just one part of their goal. Their teams also want those they help to experience spiritual healing through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. That's also why they come alongside other groups that serve the poor holistically.
The Myungsung Christian Medical Center in Ethiopia is one of those ministries. The facility is in the capital city, Addis Ababa. There, they can provide advanced medical service with the primary goal of showing the love of Jesus to Ethiopia and Africa.
The 159-bed hospital was started by the Myungsung Presbyterian Church of Seoul, Korea and provides everything from emergency treatment for world leaders to mobile medical outreaches to Ethiopia's remote regions. They also offer free medical treatment for the poor.
The hospital is also committed to improving Ethiopia's medical service, bringing in foreign experts to train Ethiopian medical professionals and putting medical staff through Christian faith-based training.
They also collaborate with international organizations, evangelistic churches, and other mission organizations to provide the best medical care they can. The end goal: "To help Ethiopians accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and accordingly gain eternal life."
In the past year, International Aid has supported the Myungsung Christian Medical Center as they have expanded their Intensive Care Unit. That includes equipment such as blood pressure cuffs, defibrillators, nebulizers, stethoscopes, stretchers, monitors, ICU beds, and exam lights.
Pray for International Aid's partners at the Myungsung Christian Medical Center as they seek to bring glory to name of Jesus Christ in Ethiopia.
