KENYA - A mission team from the U.S. is in Kenya looking for
ways to bring needed medical care to small villages.
The Texas-based Heal
International Medical Missions (HIMM), known as HIMM, is in
both South Sudan and Kenya looking to expand its
international reach. HIMM serves those in medical need as well as
those within the medical profession.
Director of operations for the organization, Michael Mosley,
says he sees great promise in Kenya and South Sudan.
"It's absolutely critical that we identify key partnerships in a
foreign country," he tells OneNewsNow. "We are the foreigners who
are coming to serve, and we have been blessed with that here."
Mosley explains that this just-completed journey to Africa has
been fruitful. "We've identified Children
Are People as a ministry that we can serve with; also a few
other partnerships -- spiritual partners, medical partners --
within the region," he says.
"The Lord has really brought together all the
pieces for us to come and to offer encouragement and support of an
existing system that's in place."
Mosley said HIMM not only partners with existing medical clinics
but integrates Christian discipleship within its efforts.
"We've all been given a provisional tool in our life," says the
mission group spokesman, "and if we can utilize that provisional
tool to share Christ, that's really doing discipleship. So we come
to encourage people to do discipleship within their provisional
HIMM currently has surgical mission partnerships in Ouanaminthe,
Haiti; Quiche, Guatemala; and Juigalpa, Nicaragua.
A California legal group suggests that officials shouldn't "bite
the hands that feed the homeless."
