Medical Help! Prayer Needed!

Good day from the Marshall Islands.  Today we would like to ask all of you reading this blog to pray for the Marshall Islands health care system.  At this time the hospital is in critical need of doctors, surgeons, equipment and medical supplies.  At this time there are no surgeons on island, orthopedic or general.  There is also no OB/GYN doctor on island as well.  To make matters worse the doctors and staff here are short supplies and equipment to do their jobs.  The doctors and staff are working long hours and have huge case loads.  They are under a lot of stress and need our prayers.  In spite of these conditions and shortages, they are doing an awesome job!

To make matters worse, there is currently an investigation ongoing concerning bribery, fraud and misuse of government funding for the hospital.  This misuse of funds may be the cause of equipment and supply shortages.  At this time, the investigation is ongoing!  Our prayer is that it will be resolved quickly and those who need to be, will be removed and disciplined.  This is a critical need and the Marshallese people are suffering because of the misuse of funds!  We know that God is a good God and that He is in total control.  Please agree with us and the churches here in the Marshall Islands on these needs.  God bless you and have a great day in the name of Jesus!

Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Richard, Stephen, Terina and Kanani
