Dear members of Limestone Presbyterian Church
I have missed all of you very much but I just wanted to inform you on how Christ is calling me to do His work. Christ continues to show me His will in my life each day. Through YWAM we (which includes you, the people of LPC) have served 1100 dental patients, and extracted 865 teeth.
Given continual health education to 3,354 people,
- seen 5,123 primary health care patients, given 5,998 medical treatments.
Given 4,444 immunizations, handed out 4,642 glasses and restored vision.
We have done 64 cataract surgeries.
Served 1,052 people with clean water filters that will filter water for years
to come and their family members.
We have been to 66 villages on 4 different islands.
- Community engagement teams have shared the Good News of the Gospel with over 25,000 people and 2,756 have given their lives to Christ!!!
- We have in total given 32,984 different medical services that has put 4,581,712 Kina worth of medical services in the isolated regions of Papua New Guinea! That’s over $1,500,000 US worth of medical care in less than 6 months!
- With your support, LPC, we have accomplished a lot!
But there is still more to be done.
I plan to travel to another YWAM medical ship to be engaged in what they are doing followed by returning to Hawaii to be a part on an Intro to Primary Health Care school where students will spend 3 months learning how to engage remote areas of the world with critical medical care. Before being sent out to Papua New Guinea.
With your continued contributions, both in prayer and Financial support, we have made amazing progress thanks to the congregation at LPC. There is a lot to accomplish here and with your help and prayers and God’s blessings anything is possible.
For me to continue in what the Lord has called me to I need still need continual funding so thank you for helping as a church body!
Keep pressing into what the Lord places on your heart to contribute.
Thanks for all your love, prayers and support.
Blessings, John Mark
Travel to Long Island
Had a wonderful meeting with the CEO of the hospital and head of nursing to talk about our next outreach to Long Island.
This island has not received medical help since anyone can remember and we are extremely excited to be able to help with all 5 medical teams!
- Primary health care,
- optometry, and
- ophthalmology surgeries.
We sail out July 8th with a full ship of medical personnel, crew, and two discipleship training school’s outreach teams.
Be praying for the Lords continual favor as we keep pressing into this last week of preparation!
July 7, 2016 — And so it begins, orientation with the largest team that has ever been on board the Pacific Link Medical Ship out of Kona. 49!
So incredible to be with this awesome group and lead them as the ship manager as we set off to Long Island tomorrow morning!
