ZAMBIA — Katherine brought her son to a medical clinic in Mawawa. The boy was treated with medications and IVs by IMB missionary Melissa Frady and the clinic staff, but because of the seriousness of his condition, he was moved to a hospital.
Weeks later Frady and a volunteer spent time evangelizing in Mawawa. They presented the gospel and conducted a prayer time. Several people decided to put their faith in Jesus as their Savior.
One lady stood up and said, “I am a witch, a prostitute and I sell beer. Will Jesus forgive me?” The team told her yes, that Jesus would forgive her.
Afterward she went up to Frady, asking if the missionary remembered her.
“You helped my son at the clinic, and here he is. He is well,” Katherine said. Katherine committed her life to Christ, and the women praised God together for all He had done.
The medical project in Mawawa recorded more than 1,100 professions of faith and opened up three new teaching areas. In addition, medicines that otherwise would not be available helped treat villagers and several life-threatening conditions were identified.
