M3 Team Hosts Annual Luncheon for Local Partners

M3 was once again honored to host over 40 of our local partner organizations at a luncheon to discuss the 2020 M3 Conference. M3 Conference Founders, Dr. Paul and Jennifer Osteen, led the luncheon program and shared about some new conference activities including the Samaritan’s Purse Ebola Treatment Center, Research Poster Presentations, a new Pre-Conference Workshop hosted by Christian Health Service Corps that will offer 6.5 hours of CME/CEU credits, and our Project of the Year, which will be Pothawira (Safe Haven) in Salima, Malawi.

The 2020 M3 Conference theme will be “Can You See It?” It will focus on the reality of the various global health statistics we all hear about, and hopefully offer practical and tangible ways that we can help change those statistics for the better.

We also enjoyed hearing from some of our partners like Dr. Anne Alaniz, Co-Founder of Pothawira, who shared about some exciting new developments including their new birthing center, as well as James Menephee, Director of Communications and Marketing for MBF-Medical Benevolence Foundation, who shared about their new Houston Heals Fun Run that will take place on February 8, 2020.

One of our favorite parts of the luncheon was when we all took time at the end connecting, encouraging each other, and finding ways that we can link arms to advance the work of medical missions.  It was a great afternoon with great friends, and we look forward to all getting together again on February 21-22, 2020, at the 5th annual M3 Conference!

2019 M3 Q&A Session with Rabbi Erica and Mark Gerson, JD

In this captivating Q&A session at the 2019 M3 Conference, Dr. Paul Osteen interviews Rabbi Erica Gerson and Mark Gerson, JD, with the focus question being, “Why do Jewish philanthropists support Christian medical missions?” The Gersons explain that they believe that medical mission work offers a superior return on philanthropic investment, and their involvement in Christian healthcare helps fulfill the Jewish imperative to “love the stranger.”

Rabbi Erica Gerson is the Co-Founder of the L’Chaim (“To Life”) Prize for Outstanding Christian Medical Missionary Service, and Mark Gerson, JD, is the Co-Founder of the L’Chaim Prize, Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), and United Hatzalah, as well as the Co-Founder and Chairman of African Mission Healthcare.
