Kigoma Baptist Hospital, Tanzania

(kee-GOH-muh) – In January, a volunteer nurse will return for her second month-long trip to Kigoma Baptist Hospital. She is the daughter of former International Mission Board missionaries to Tanzania who remembers her childhood Swahili language and understands the culture well, so she can jump right in and minister to patients and their families. As she works on the pediatric ward, pray for her to have many opportunities to share the love of Christ in both word and action. Pray as she works alongside the hospital’s new pediatrician that she will be able to help him grasp pediatric medical Swahili.
