The Kenya Medical Missions Team will be serving the people of Mombasa, Kenya. Mombasa is a city located on the beautiful shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
Please pray for the Team as they go into this field that is ready for harvesting.
Bwana asifiwe (praise the Lord!!!), the Mombassa missionaries have arrived safely in the beautiful country of Kenya! We cleared customs with no problems and arrived safely at our hotel where we were fed a delicious meal, sweet melons and Stony!! (be sure to ask about Stony! Its definitely worth the 17 hour flight to the other side of the world!) Tomorrow we will be participating in the prayer walk on the grounds of the medical camp and packaging and preparing medical supplies and medicines. Please keep all missionaries covered in prayer as we prepare to SEARCH SIEGE AND SECURE SOULS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!! Mungu akubariki na tuonane badaaye! (God bless you and we will see you later!)
~Elder Calvin Jones
several gifts of our team merged with the unique gifts of the host team here in Mombasa. The stage is set for God to release an anointing of healing deliverance and salvation. Our pastoral team visited five churches within a 100 mile radius to meet and greet new and incoming pastors to be introduced into the Kingdom Pastors Alliance which has been established by Shalom Outreach, International. The medical team established their locations on the camp grounds and the evangelistic team prayer walked the grounds saturating every inch with the Spirit of God and the power of His blood. Tomorrow we begin our work! We will be ministering to the sick both naturally and spiritually. The evangelism team will be going into the villages praying, laying hands and declaring the full manifestation of the will of Jehovah Jireh and Jehovah Ropha!
We pray you and your family members are experiencing a mighty move of God in your lives today. Thank you for adding our petitions to your daily prayer agenda, we are most grateful.
Following our powerful morning devotional period, the team headed for the sight of our 2017 Medical Camp. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the school officials, the layout of the medical camp was completed, the evangelistic team conducted their prayer walk on the grounds of the medical camp in preparation to receive our patients. Much work was needed to get the school in place to receive our guests.
Much of our evening was dedicated to packing medicines, medical supplies and, organizing the clothes for distribution at the camp.

Wow! The first day of the medical camp has been completed! Our triage team reported 389 patients coming into the camp. Dr. and Mrs. Tony Puller reported 20-25 patients seen in the dental clinic. There were 8 surgeries and over 500 toothbrushes and toothpaste distributed. The pharmacy ran well and medications were distributed properly. Dr. Kimberly Turner, our OBGYN doctor stated there were 30 breast and pelvic examinatins completed. Per Dr. Haithcock, internal medicine doctor, states the Kenyan team and administration received the Shalom team warmly and made us feel at home. Approximately 55 patients were seen in his clinic. The illnesses that were treated reflected the absense of proper and timely medical care. The primary cause of this deficiency is financial. Some of the patients seen had medical maladies that that exceeded a medical remedy in the natural. In these cases and indeed every case, each of the doctors and their staff consulted the great physician! Clothing and 2000 bags of food were also distributed to the people of Mombasa! We praise God for His marvelous works and we thank Him in advance for continued miracles, signs and wonders in the lives of those we serve and our own respectively!

The Team remains grateful for the opportunities our Lord has afforded us to be used by Him. Today was the first of three medical camps that we will conduct in Mombasa. We would like to point out, during the opening ceremony of the medical camp three doctors (Drs. Haithcock, Turner and Puller) on our team prayed to the Great Physician innovating His healing power to flow through them as they ministered to the patients.
Following our powerful morning devotion, the Team gathered at Utange Baptist Church toset up our third medical camp. We want to give a great big shout out to the men on our Team who did an outstanding job of converting the classrooms to a place suitable to receive patients. This was not a small task, but God!!!
This was our first medical camp held on the grounds of a church and we were so delightedto be a part of the great work this church does for the Kingdom: feeding and educating orphans, providing shoes and clothing for them….the work of the church. The Team was touched by the number of children we saw at Utgange, children who stood in line to receive food that was distributed. These children once again witnessed the love of Jesus in action. Hundreds of children left the camp with food in their hands and flip flops to cover their bare feet. We are so grateful to see the hands of God in motion.
A room was set up for the children to express themselves using their artistic talent. The room was overflowing with eager young people, again ministry at work. We were able to involve our lives in the lives with these bright young people telling them about the love of Jesus and encouraging them they are destined for greatness.
At the conclusion of this medical camp 277 people received free medical care bringing the total to 1,771. We will report the number of individuals who received salvation after we receive confirmation from the various teams.
Our day was long, but we endured, it was hot, but we recovered, our muscles were sore, but we received strength from the great Physician. Looking/thinking back, we would do it all again. Considering what Jesus did for us…selah.
Please continue to pray for the children of Mombasa and for the men and women. Please pray that more attention will be given to the health care of the people. The Medical Mission ended, but your prayers will go forth making a difference in this nation. We have not because we ask not.
Thanks again prayer warriors for your spiritual support. Your prayers enabled us to endure like good soldiers.

The Team was able to go to three different churches in Mombasa to worship and three preachers from the Team delivered the word in these churches. We all were met with warm smiles and lots of hugs, indeed we felt welcome.
Following the worship services, we all met back at the hotel for lunch and the rest of the day was spent doing fun things like riding a camel on the beach of the India Ocean, soaking up the sun, resting, etc.
We will board our plane for home at 5:40 p.m. we ask that you use the Prayer Agenda that was given to you to pray for the Team. We recognize we are still on mission for The Lord….please continue to pray.
