In September 2015, a medical missions team of 10 volunteers comprising six medically trained professionals partnered with a non-governmental organisation, One-2-One Cambodia, to help the sick and needy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
As part of the ground preparation, our team worked with local volunteers to transport medical supplies to a local church where the free clinic would be available for three days, from 8am to 5pm daily. On the first day, a smooth operation flow was planned out and bulky medical supplies were quickly categorised and divided into smaller packs for easy dispensation.
Between 22 and 24 September 2015, the team not only attended to the medical needs of the villagers who made their way to the free clinic, but also ministered to and shared the gospel with these precious people. In addition, a prayer and healing corner was set up, and praise and worship sessions were available to the villagers. Patients who visited the free clinic received more than just medical treatment, some also received physical healing from the Lord!
A lady who was in pain and walked with the aid of crutches, was able to walk away with no pain after receiving prayers. Another patient who was completely deaf in her left ear testified of hearing a crackling sound in the ear after she was prayed for. She was overjoyed when she started to hear slightly. Our volunteer encouraged her to continue looking to Jesus for the full manifestation of her healing. Another villager with blurred vision in one eye received her sight after hands were laid on her in prayer. Glory to Jesus!
Channat, a young believer and One-2-One Cambodia staff shared, “This mission trip was amazing, I witnessed many wonderful things that the Lord had done over the past three days. I had the opportunity to pray for many sick patients. The Lord demonstrated to us His power and willingness to heal.”
On 25 September 2015, the last day of the mission, a doctor on our volunteer medical team also delivered a lecture for local healthcare students to impart and share practical medical knowledge with them. The team then adjourned to visit children from a school in the slum.
In all, the team reached out to around 700 patients from villages and slums in the vicinity through the sharing of the gospel and providing free basic medical care and medicine.
