Because of you and your generous giving, God continues to use Body and Soul Ministries to touch the lives of people across the world. From life saving surgeries to creating safe and loving environments for children, BandS is dedicated to helping the less fortunate in need. Here are a few of the projects that are making a profound difference because of your continued support.
THIRD QUARTER REPORT 2011

Kenya: Surgical Camp

In June 2011, BandS partnered with the Caris Foundation in a surgical camp in Malindi for the third consecutive year. A team of four surgeons, five anesthesiologists, 13 nurses, two PA’s and a host of support staff performed 168 major surgical procedures over a two week period. Team members from North Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Canada, Texas, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky and South Carolina sacrificed their time and used their talents to change the lives of the people of Kenya.

 

In Kisumu, BandS assisted in operating the pharmacy at the Ring Road Orphanage by supplying funds for medications and for netting used in protection from mosquitoes carrying malaria. As a result, the cases of malaria have been drastically reduced.

 

During 2011, medical treatment was provided for staff and children at the Made In The Streets ministry in Nairobi, and restrooms were constructed for the 500 student school at the Mehenzo Church development project near Malindi.

Indonesia: Eye Surgeries

In June 2011, BandS headed up an eye surgery camp in South Nias where 162 surgeries were performed at a cost of only $148 per eye. The surgeries were performed in a new location and many obstacles were overcome, including issues with electrical power, air conditioning and patient accommodations.

 

BandS is committed to performing 100 eye surgeries in Medan in 2011, 41 of which have been completed to date. In addition, BandS assisted in completing the construction of a Medan church building.

Philippines: Homes for Orphans

In February 2006 a massive mudslide occurred in the province of Southern Leyte that caused widespread damage and loss of life. Certain orphans were relocated to Sunrise Christian College in Butuan City, where they became students. At that time, BandS began supporting them by building two homes to house the orphans. BandS also pays their medical and dental expenses and the medical and dental expenses for the staff. This year, we provided a one-time gift to pay teachers’ salaries at Sunrise Christian College.

 

VBS programs and other evangelism projects were conducted by the Leyte students and were funded by BandS.
