THIRSTY GROUND UPDATES

Other than a small outbreak of flu and strep throat, we’ve not had much in the way of major new medical cases these past two weeks, other than one of the preemies we helped having breathing issues. There’s been a lot of changes with some existing needs that we’ve already posted about…(Read More)

Last week, we had 6 babies born in one day! The Lord answered prayer for safe deliveries, and all the women made it to the hospital before delivering too. Four of them are from the same mother, quadruplets mentioned in the previous update. All four quads are in the NICU. The two boys were having…(Read More)

It is my hope to begin providing more regular bi-weekly updates on the recurring medical cases out here. Each week we are often inundated with new people coming with medical conditions that range from common infections to complex multi-system conditions needing specialist help. We try to also balance that with existing refugees we…(Read More)

For those following along on our Facebook page you’ve no doubt seen the surge of refugee babies coming these past weeks. We’ve been pretty busy with that, and thankful that three more beautiful, healthy refugee babies came yesterday (all three Syrian women went into labor at almost the same time, it was intense…(Read More)

Many thanks to those who are praying for the compassion work out here. Just these first two weeks of May alone we’ve had several babies born, dozens of new medical needs and new opportunities to enable other local churches to serve refugees in their areas as well. Making The Rounds With a Visiting Doctor…(Read More)

Though it’s only been two weeks since the last medical ministry update, it’s been a packed two weeks. Five babies born already this month; four of them were born in a row with one each day for the first week of April! The ladies were busy going up and down the mountain all…(Read More)

This is a quick update on two more healthy Syrian refugee babies born last week. One is a little girl, the other a little boy, and both of them are over 10 pounds each! We thank God that the deliveries went well. One was almost delivered on the highway. What happened? The team went to…(Read More)

It’s hard to believe but as of this week we count 49 refugee babies delivered since we began helping pregnant Syrian refugee women last year. It’s been a busy year! Many midnight scrambles to distant hospitals with pregnant refugee women in active labor in the car. Many trying times praying for finances for…(Read More)
