Caring for the needs of people is integral to the missionary tasks of evangelism, discipling new believers, training leaders and forming healthy churches. Healthcare missions gives access to the unreached, allows for intimate conversations, meets needs, makes disciples and empowers the church.

Healthcare Prayer and Celebrations Updated September 2023

Sub-Saharan Africa

Though over the years the IMB has turned hospitals over to national leadership, we still partner with them by providing healthcare workers to participate in the ministry of the institution. One of our former hospitals in Ghana currently has an IMB surgeon working there but continues in need of more doctors. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will bring His chosen physician to be a blessing to the people in the area and work with the hospital as they meet the world's greatest need: lostness.

Deaf Peoples

The culturally deaf worldwide present unique challenges to our efforts to reach the lost with the gospel. Often isolated in their families of origin, under educated and lacking resources in a language that communicates to them, we need to find good ways to share health information as well as the gospel with this huge group of people. Pray that the Lord give creativity and persistence as our health strategists work with our Deaf affinity to enhance the meeting of human needs and extend the proclamation of the gospel among these people.

Asia-Pacific Rim

People are hearing the gospel through healthcare ministries in Thailand! The clinic in Bangkla, Thailand is active and intentional in sharing with people in villages all over the country through mobile clinics. The fields are white for the harvest, but the workers are few. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will call out His person to join this clinic as a career healthcare provider to increase the impact of this ministry even more.

Americas

In South America there are multiple indigenous groups of people who have not yet heard about Jesus. Usually these peoples live in remote places and often do not have healthcare. Pray that doors may be opened to provide needed care and to introduce people to Jesus. Pray that national healthcare professionals as well as those from US and other countries will be ready to enter those open doors.

The greatest problem in our wold is lostness and the Gospel is the answer. Workers are needed to take the Gospel to those who have not heard and have not believed. Pray that many healthcare professionals and students will be challenged to respond to God’s call to pray, give, go and send.
