Space Problem

When 27 year-old Jonathan was brutally stabbed and rushed to the Charles Selby Memorial Hospital in Aparri, Luzon, Philippines – both his life and his soul were saved! People like you make it possible through FAME!

Jonathan says, “Because of the employees sharing God’s word, it made me believe and accept Jesus to become a Christian like them.”

Catherine, at 20 years of age, was homeless, depressed, and very much pregnant. When complications of delivery occurred at the Provincial Hospital, they immediately rushed her to Selby Memorial because it is equipped to deliver by caesarian section.

In her words, Catherine proclaimed, “Lord change me. I experienced a life-changing atmosphere at this hospital…”

Two emergencies – three lives saved – two new believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ofelia, the Selby Memorial Administrator said, “Once again the ministry of the hospital has proven that it is not only established to ‘save life,’ but also to ‘change life’ through God’s Word!”

Through partners like you, FAME was part of the launch of this important medical center in 1998. In the nearly 20 years of operation (pun intended), it has become 80% self-supporting and 100% Filipino-led. It’s a great success story as Jonathan and Catherine will attest.

Selby Memorial has a BIG problem – the 50 bed facility isn’t able to keep up with the medical demands of the growing area. Fortunately, when it was built an unfinished third floor was in the design – and it stands ready to be outfitted for service now!

With your help, I believe FAME can once again bring a vital infusion of capital to complete the entire third floor – and extend the life-saving, soul-saving ministry to thousands more patients in the Aparri area.

Can you make a gift this month so we can send the funds to complete the space that is ready and waiting to be deployed?

Honduras

March 2 – 10, 2018

Estimated Cost – $1,800
Missionaries:  Felipe and Valerie Colby

Mission:  His Eyes, Tegucigalpa, Honduras

We would like for you to join us on our upcoming trip to Honduras! As a trip participant, you will have the opportunity to participate in several hands-on ministry projects through our host mission, “His Eyes”, directed by Felipe and Valerie Colby in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

Our primary focus is providing medical/spiritual care through multiple mobile medical clinics to people living in remote communities who do not have access to nearby healthcare.

Mobile medical clinics help to open doors for national Evangelists who are called to reach people for Christ in a specific community. Illnesses are treated by the medications that are dispensed by our team, but the long-lasting treatment for all of life’s challenges lies in knowing Jesus. Mobile medical camps enhance the ministry of local Evangelists and help draw attention to the Great Physician and His healing.

We are seeking Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, NPs, PAs, Physical Therapists, Dentists, Optometrists, and other medical professionals who are seeking an opportunity to be used according to their skills and abilities on this trip. We are also in need of non-medical trip participants who will be taught how to serve in the following areas:

Triage (taking blood pressures, temps, and blood sugars. They will also determine the chief complaint of the patient).

Health Education Station (teach a simple health education lesson along with sharing a brief devotion with a group of 10 – 15 patients at a time).

Pharmacy Station (prepare prescribed medications to be dispensed to the patient).

In addition to ministering through our mobile medical clinics, the team will be involved in a personal visit to families who are in need of food, visit a local government hospital and pray with children who are patients in the hospital as well as taking them a “goodie bag” full of fun activities. Time will be spent at the “His Eyes” Milk Project where children who attend will hear a Bible Story/Bible Truth, participate in games, and do a craft. Read more at http://www.hiseyeshonduras.com/

Interpreters will be available to the team for all ministries.

Accommodations will be on the mission compound in dorm style rooms with showers and flush toilets. Food is provided by the ministry of “His Eyes”. Free time is built in to experience the Honduran culture as well.

We are traveling to Myanmar and would like for you to join us! Our focus is to provide midwifery training and 2 Health Education Seminars to approximately 60+ midwives, pastors, and community leaders. These lessons focus on disease prevention and can easily be applied to the lives of families living in most any community! Seminar participants will leave being challenged to take responsibility for their own health and well-being, as well as gain cooperation within their community to do the same. Replicating what they have learned in their communities will also open doors for them to share about Jesus.

Lesson plans have been established for our Health Education Seminars. We are in need of both medical and non-medical trip participants who believe in the value of providing preventative health education taught by using Biblical principles.

Our host missionaries are Asian Children’s Mission (ACM) and Asia Christian Services (ACS).

January 26 – February 10, 2018, Estimated Cost:  $3565

If you are looking for an exciting trip, this is the one for you! We would like to invite you to join us on our trip to the country of Myanmar (Burma)! We will be serving alongside Simon Thaung (Asia Christian Services), Josiah Aung (Asian Children’s Mission), and Lincoln Bill (Myanmar Christian Services).

Our team, which consists of those traveling on the trip with FAME and our friends in Myanma, will form a medical brigade with the purpose of treating the physical and spiritual needs of patients living in and around selected communities. These communities are located in both the city of Yangon and in Chin State. Chin State is located northwest of Yangon.

Our in-country hosts have found it beneficial for us to offer medical care in communities where they, themselves, are ministering. Medical brigades have been used to “open doors” for our Myanma evangelists to either enter a community for the very first time or are used to strengthen already existing relationships between the Christian evangelists and people living in that community.

Our accommodations will be in local hotels that are safe, clean, and comfortable with both flush toilets and showers. Our meals will be eaten at our hotel, in restaurants, and also prepared by our host missionaries. FAME will make all flight arrangements including our international flights (to and from Myanmar) and the team’s in-country flights (to and from Kalaymyo). A representative from FAME will be traveling with the team.

We are in need of medical professionals such as Physicians, Nurses, PAs, NPs, Physical Therapists, and others. We are also in need of non-medical trip participants who will be taught how to serve in the following areas:

Triage (taking blood pressures, temps, and blood sugars. They will also determine the chief complaint of the patient).

Health Education Station (teach a simple health education lesson along with sharing a brief devotion with a group of 10 – 15 patients at a time).

Pharmacy Station (prepare prescribed medications to be dispensed to the patient).

Interpreters are available throughout our trip and are an integral part of our team.

February 9 – 24, 2018, Estimated Cost: $3565

This trip to Myanmar has a dual purpose! We will be serving with host missionaries Simon Thaung (Asia Christian Services), Josiah Aung (Asian Children’s Mission), and Lincoln Bill (Restoration Bible Institute), in the city of Kalaymyo, located in Chin State.

Our ministry will be for 2 weeks in length. The first week we are seeking CHE trainers who have a desire to facilitate a CHE TOT1 training of 20 Pastors/Community Leaders from multiple communities in the Chin State area. We feel the TOT1 training is the spiritual foundation to other training opportunities that FAME will offer in the future.

The second week of ministry, will consist of providing health education to people living in multiple communities in the Chin State area. The Myanma people are very eager to learn how to have better health in their homes and communities. Many of them live where there are no health care facilities or doctors/nurses available if someone in their family or community should become ill or injured. These lessons are very basic and are taught in a way that allows the student to teach others!

Both the CHE TOT1 training and our health education training include not only practical tools to use in disease prevention, but more importantly, how to use these tools to reach out to people in your family/community with the good news of Jesus, our Great Physician!

Our accommodations will be in a hotel or guest house with meals provided by our local friends. Transportation will be provided by our host missionaries. Interpreters will be available to our team for both weeks of training.

In addition, there will be time set aside to visit people living in local communities, attend a Chin church service, and experience the local culture!

Time to prayerfully consider your involvement!
