Sharing Jesus Through Missions


Rwanda Medical Mission Trips

There were two trips  to Rwanda, Africa. The first trip was July 23, 2012 through August 6 2012. The second trip was March 11, 2013 to March 23, 2013.  The first trip was a combined medical missionary trip. During the first trip, Dr. Nelson examined patients after the missionary church services. On the first trip there were approximately 250 patients seen and treated. The first trip gave rise to the second trip which was more of a medical missionary trip. During the second trip 600-700 patients were seen and evaluated. Dr. Nelson was accompanied by three other physicians; Cosette Lyons-Jones MD , Taleah Phillips MD and  Falyne J Frye MD (psychiatrist) as well as nurses, pharmacy assistants, psychologists, and other medical personnel.

Rev. Cecelia Bryant and Pastor Jonathan Weaver provided the spiritual leadership. 

Going from village to village they set up satellite clinics on church grounds. HIV testing was performed, Hypertension evaluation and treatment, Diabetic screening, eyeglasses prescribed, infectious disease processes were treated with antibiotics and psychological and spiritual counseling provided.

At the Mohoko, AME Church the providers worked into the night treating patients as they continued to line up outside of the church.

The team traveled to Ginsenyi evaluating and treating 100 men and women who crossed the border from Goma and other parts of the Eastern Congo. Many of these patients were victims of  violent crimes.

Many of the patients examined had never seen a physician before.
