Bob believes that God has been preparing him for this missional role his entire life.

Paramedic Training in Chiapas

Licensed physicians are not usually available in Chiapan villages, so health workers assist at births. Most of the health workers have been taught to give injections and utilize intravenous techniques. A few perform simple external surgeries. They also connect villagers with government health workers and facilities, especially when hospitalization becomes necessary. The village health workers also are a spiritual arm of the church. They pray with patients, witness to the love of God, and help people recover from physical ailments and maladies.

Evangelical Mission Hospital

Evangelical Mission Hospital (EMH) has a more than 100-year history in Aswan, Egypt. EMH is well trusted by its mostly Muslim patients, but a lack of nurses make it difficult to run the hospital effectively. The RCA has partnered with the Aswan Nurses through EMH to provide tuition support for Egyptian men and women to go to nursing school in Egypt ($3,000 per year for three or four years). The RCA also helps cover stipends for the Christian-based family practice residents at EMH ($5,000 per year for two or three years).

Ahuas Clinic

Mosquitia, the largest wilderness area in Central America, includes a 5,500-square-mile area in eastern Honduras that has been isolated politically, socially, geographically, linguistically, and economically. Many people have never heard the gospel, and the nearest hospital can be 12 or more hours away by canoe.

Amos Limo Liang'or

Amos Limo Liang’or grew up among the Pokot people along the Kenya/Uganda border. Because he contracted polio and was unable to help with work at home, he was the only one of his family’s 12 children to attend school. Amos became interested in medicine when he learned that polio can be prevented through immunization. He currently works as a nurse at the Pokot Health Centre in the village of Alale. He says, “As a nurse, I am concerned with more than just my patients’ physical well-being.”

Wings of Mercy

Alas de Socorro (Wings of Mercy) is a aviation ministry from the Moravian Church in Honduras that serves the Miskito people living in the coastal lowlands of Eastern Honduras. Wings of Mercy transports people by air in need of emergency medical care to the Ahuas medical clinic due to the lack of accessible road ways in that region. They also transport pastors, missionaries, church workers, and others who travel to these remote villages.

Jeremy & Susan Beebout

Medical and agricultural development needs are extreme in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world. Niger has only a rudimentary health system, so disease is widespread, and the country is always teetering on the edge of famine.

Jeremy and Susan Beebout work with the Evangelical Church of the Republic of Niger (EERN) to build ministry programs, enabling Nigerien Christians to share Christ's love with the people of Niger by addressing their health and agricultural needs.

Adrian & Bernardeth Bobb-Kelly

The east coast of Nicaragua is one of the poorest area of an already poor country. That's where Dr. Bernardeth Kelly Bent and pastor Adrián Bobb provide public health and medical services, as well as spiritual and pastoral education, to the population. They are the founders of Tabitha’s House Bluefields (THB), a ministry that works in partnership with the Moravian Church in Nicaragua. They have two children, Abebja and Abayomi.

Adrián and Bernardeth serve in partnership with Tabitha House.
