Church brings health to Africa

October 31, 2004

Albany -- An Albany Church collects thousands of dollars in medical supplies and donations to bring health and hope to the people of Ghana, Africa.

For more than a year, Rhema Word International Ministries has collected medical supplies for their outreach trip to Ghana.

Monday morning the group of 13 that includes one physician and several nurses will leave for the 7 day medical outreach program.

"I believe the Lord wants us to go and touch the world with the gospel and it's apart of my heart to take medical teams, carpentry teams, electrical teams to go in and build clinics," says Bishop Victor Powell, pastor of Rhema Word Ministries.

"Hopefully I will be able to come back and spread the word about my experience in Ghana and light a fire in the medical community about this kind of work," says Dr. Michael Satchell.

The church hopes to make their medical trip an annual event and wants to eventually build a permanent building in Africa.
