Miracles with the Maasai

Two of our church members, Drs. Michael and Dinah Thompson, give a one-minute report in this video on their amazing medical mission trip to the Maasai people of Kenya, Africa.  Here is what Dinah wrote: In 4 days of medical clinic, our team saw about 1050 patients.  The “medical camp” was the largest that Kenyan Dr. James had ever hosted, with 5 doctors, an optometrist, 2 PA’s, 3 nurses, 3 dentists, a lab technician and a pharmacist. Ten pastors from 10 different churches acted as counselors, leading people to the Lord and praying for their needs.  It was the first show of unity in the church anyone could remember in the Ewaso Kedong Sub-county—40km northwest of Kenyan capital Nairobi. There was an anointing for healing!!!  Many musculoskeletal and neuropathic pains disappeared instantaneously. Many people had their hearing improved. Michael saw a leg lengthened. I saw frozen shoulders, a locked finger and stooped-over back increase in range of motion with short prayers. On the last day of clinics, I had my translator pray so she would have faith that God could heal through her as well--and God did!  A 9-year-old prayed for her grandmother’s leg pain to be healed and it was!  Another doctor had patients pray for their own healing and they were healed.  We were told later that people were saying they had never seen such miracles—that this is the hand of God and that they will go to the church of God. In a village 28 km away, people were talking about the man whose leg was lengthened and whose back got healed thorugh prayer!  We also heard after we left that people weren’t taking their pain medication (Tylenol, Motrin) because they were already healed from their pain!  Glory to God! Hungry People We discovered the people were actually almost starving, having only tea for breakfast and tea with garlic for supper. So we pooled our money and arranged with Convoy of Hope to distribute a truckload of maize, rice, and some nutrient-rich mix that was tasty when cooked.  The food distribution was done on the last day of clinic and the people were very happy.  The Galcom Audio Bibles were well received by the people.  We gave one to a man who was blind. Our health and the health of the whole team was good during the entire trip.  I had no back pain on the roughest road trip we’ve ever taken that went on for hours —what grace!  God made camping easier for me in the dusty, hot African land by providing good food and showers!  By the end of the trip, I was able to sleep decently on the little mattress pads!   We had good interpreters and the Lord blessed us with finances. The church there was renewed and the people had hope.  The young Kenyan professionals working with us as interpreters were inspired by this experience.  A couple of them said it was life-changing and they’d do it again and again.  Hallelujah! Thank you so much for your prayers and support!  We know the anointing for healing was definitely a result of all your intercession!  Please continue to pray for “Missionland.”  2 Chronicles 7:14 declares, “If My people who are called by My name shall humble themselves, pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will heal their land.” There has been a drought for 5 years—there is no grass now so the cows are no longer among the people but have been taken far away closer to the mountains where there is more food and water.  Only the goats and some sheep remain.  We need to pray for revival and repentance that their land would be healed and that they would get rain. Once again humbled by the goodness of our wonderful Lord and by your support, Dinah & Michael Thompson
