Hum Out Trip Pics-Holy Land

Middle East Vision and Health

Location:  Middle East

Dates:  May 25 – June 7, 2016

Project: Eyeglass Clinic, LuoPad Training

Cost: $2,585 (Airfare Not Included)

Leader: John Douglass

Approximately 5 million people in the Middle East are affected by some type vision impairment. Impaired vision affects people’s ability to get around, work, and read. Imagine not being able to see the faces of your family and friends! Vision problems are typically easy to treat, but with large numbers of refugees from Syria and Iraq continuing to pour into the region, health care resources and professionals are scarce, especially in rural areas.

GAIN wants to partner with local pastors and churches to help meet these needs in their communities. Our work increases the ability of these local ministries to build relationships and share the gospel with those around them.

Ministry Opportunity

We will travel to the heart of the Middle East to conduct an eyeglasses clinic. At the clinic we will meet with locals and refugees one-on-one to assess their vision and provide eyeglasses appropriate to their need. No experience is necessary. There will also be a special initiative to train local, believing women to minister to other women in the refugee camps using LuoPads.

Zambia Mobility Outreach

Zambia Mobility Training

Mission Field:  Zambia

Dates:  August 5 – 15, 2016

Project: Mobility Ministry training

Cost: TBD

Leaders: Cyndi Bozard, Bob Klein, Brittany Lowry

2 million men, women, and children in the southern African nation of Zambia have some type of disability. Most of these people live in rural areas where access to basic services is limited, and families often lack knowledge about how to care for their loved ones or the resources to do so. In addition, these individuals are often stigmatized because of their disabilities.

GAIN wants to partner with local ministries and churches to help meet this need in their communities. Our work increases the ability of these local partners to build relationships and share the gospel with those around them. 

Ministry Opportunity

We are building on our past involvement with the mobility ministry in the city of Ndola. Physical therapists will provide additional training to local caregivers on how to assess the needs of the disabled, equip them with mobility equipment, and ensure recipients are properly fitted and trained. Physical Therapists are needed, especially, to help with training. All are welcome to assist in the distribution of equipment.

Hum Out Trip Pics-Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe Community Agriculture

Location: Zimbabwe

Dates: Aug 11 – 22, 2016

Project: Community Agricultural Project

Cost: $2,125 (Airfare Not Included)

Leaders: Cyndi Bozard, John Douglass

Zimbabwe is a southern African nation known for its beauty and wildlife. Early this year, GAIN drilled a well in a Zimbabwean village about an hour outside the town Bulawayo. Before the well, villagers had to travel many miles each day to get water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. Now that this rural village has access to water we want to help them make maximum use of it and provide for their community!

GAIN wants to partner with local pastors and churches to help meet needs in their communities. Our work increases the ability of these local partners to build relationships and share the gospel with those around them.

Ministry Opportunity

We will install a drip-irrigation system to create a community garden. This garden will be a model agricultural project for others and will help provide food for many in the community. After dark we will be touching hearts and lives ministering with the JESUS film in their language to bring a clear message of the gospel.

Hum Out Trip Pics-Central Asia

Central Asia Vision Clinics

Location: Central Asia

Dates: Sept 8-20, 2016

Project: Eyeglasses Clinic

Cost: TBD

Leaders: Robert Newkirk, Brittany Lowry

Nearly 15 million people in South and Central Asia are affected by some type vision impairment. Impaired vision affects people’s ability to get around, work, and read. Imagine not being able to see the faces of your family and friends! Vision problems are typically easy to treat; however, most people in this central Asian nation live in valley or mountain villages making it very difficult to access health care, including vision care.

GAIN wants to partner with local pastors and churches to help meet these needs in their communities. Our work increases the ability of these local ministries to build relationships and share the gospel with those around them.

Ministry Opportunity

We will travel to beautiful, mountainous central Asia to conduct an eyeglasses clinic. At the clinic we will meet with locals one-on-one to assess their vision and provide eyeglasses appropriate to their need. No experience is necessary. We will also visit community development centers in the area, helping to provide evangelism and discipleship opportunities.

Updates from the field

Baby Lis

In March 2010, a GAIN mission team in San Pablo la Laguna, Guatemala found a family with a newborn, Lis, that was dying because she was unable to nurse. The team was able to help get formula and bottles for her and provide the family with clean water which saved her life. We received this recent picture of Lis in 2013, now 3 1/2 years old, alive and healthy because God used our team.

Pete Nazarith

Pete Nazarith entered his country’s National University of Biology and Chemistry in 1962. He entered their single official leper colony in 1970, but not as a doctor or scientist. He entered it as a patient.“Leprosy,” according to Nika, a GAIN volunteer working in the colony today, “is a disease that affects the whole body, all the organs, and kills the bones.” Pete was helped by a GAIN Central Asia team where they were able to minister and pray with him.

Juana Marisol

Last November, a GAIN team met the family of Juana Marisol in San Juan Cotzal, Quiche, Guatemala. Her parents asked them to pray for her and showed them a huge growth on her back. Many on the team and other friends donated money and this November she was finally able to have surgery. This interaction with the family this past year has given the pastor and our local staff opportunities to minister to this sweet family in so many ways. Please pray for her continued healing!
