A highlight for me personally has been seeing these students get a glimpse of Gods heart for the poor and the needy, especially the women suffering, unnecessarily through pregnancy and childbirth. As they gain Gods heart, they also grow in their understanding of how God has equipped them to go because “He delivers the needy when they call, the poor and him who has no helper”
Annually 289,000 women die of pregnancy and childbirth complications; most of these could be prevented. 99% of these deaths happen in the developing world. Our training program is aimed to work particularly in the developing world.
We also learn how there is an attack against infants in the world, that each child bears the image of God and the enemy wants to do everything he can to keep the children from living out their destiny here on earth. As birth attendants, we act as gatekeepers for life and have the privilege to pray and welcome many newborns in Jesus name.
Up to date, the birth attendant school has delivered 4,929 babies.
In the coming weeks I will be travelling to Hyderabad, India. I will be working in a hospital that focuses on serving the poorest women in the city. Daily there are 400-800 women who come for antenatal care and 60-80 women who give birth. This is a hospital that the birth attendant school has been going to for 11 years. The ongoing relationship allows for immediate hands on training and the high density of patients means that they are happy to have us help. Being a birth attendants who fears the Lord means that I will have the chance to pray for scared, tired and “untouchable” women and show them the love of God.
In order to go, we need to raise $5,000 AUD for our expenditures.
Would you prayerfully consider giving $100 towards this need?
Thank you for your consideration! God Bless
