When Healthcare Meets Love

A person’s health is multifaceted and is both physical and spiritual. It’s also important to note that if you don’t address the spiritual needs of a person, the physical issues can be overwhelming. The great news is that MMI works for the Great Healer and its through Jesus teachings and guide that we perform the ministry’s work around the world.

14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. James 5:14-15

One of the aspects that is very important to the ministry is that our teams pray over the patients they are serving. We serve the ultimate healer and it is imperative that we never forget that our ability to use the gifts that God has provided is only possible through Him. Healing is also in His hands, we see the physical healing, but we also are very aware that the spiritual healing is so much more important for the patient.

Our patients may or may not be followers of Jesus, it doesn’t matter, as Jesus told us to seek out the meek, the poor, the sick, and help them. It is only through our actions, not words, that God’s love is performed before the eyes of those we serve. Every single time, God always finds an opportunity for the patient to say “Why do you come to do this for me?” The answer? It is through our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ that we have been called into service for Him so that you may be reached and know that He loves you!

In the end, it is through our faith and the willingness to leave our comfort zones to go and impact lives. God has called us into service, and we are to optimize the gifts that God has provided so that we can do His work in service for others. You can help do this as well, whether it is in prayer, support, or volunteering for service. Join with us to serve others!
