It is God Calling You
Christians around the world come face to face with people in difficult situations. Many times we may walk away, offer a hand and go on, or we may think it’s for someone else, some other group, or for the government to take care of, but when, like Moses, we stop to look more closely at the situation, we see “God in the burning bush.” We see more, feel more and realize we can do more. In this Plenary session, Dr. Nkundeki shares his story. He is a Ugandan doctor at a mission hospital in the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda’s capital. He will discuss how being involved in a community led to a decade long relationship with nearby slum communities, working with them to create solutions to their problems, including using a medical outreach team of Village Health Volunteers to spread health information, change lifestyles and bring hope. He will share about discerning the stirrings and opportunities, and recognizing it is God calling you. God needs you as a conduit of His grace, an ambassador of His dream, to bring hope and courage, and an exodus of His people to a higher quality of life.
10 Years of Clinic Growth, Village Health Teams and Sustainability
In this session, Dr. Martin Nkundeki from Wentz Medical Center in Gaba, Kampala, Uganda, shares lessons learned about missions, the local church, the community and hospital sustainability. This one medical center raises up to 90% of its funds from local services. Additionally, the medical center has supported the establishment of four other rural health units using medical camps, church engagement, village health teams and measured levels of care to keep healthcare as a sustainable instrument of Christian medical witness.
