Bongolo Hospital Update

Bongolo Hospital has been far more busy and stressful of late than normal, due to a number of reasons.

First, the many of the government run hospitals are on strike.  This happens periodically in Gabon and, when it does, the word spreads, far and wide, that medical care is still happening at Bongolo.

Secondly, there has been a measles epidemic.  Normally, the government would have a vaccination plan, but it is not happening at this time.

Thirdly, medications at Bongolo are running very low and the resources to order more medications are somewhat dependent on a government insurance program.  That program is very far behind on their payments to Bongolo, so it's hard to keep the medicines stocked.

Fourthly, Bongolo is short-staffed, with some teammates on sick-leave and other positions waiting to be filled.  Please pray for speedy recoveries for the current staff and for new staff (especially a primary care doctor and nurse) to join the team.

Yet... yet... through it all, each person coming to Bongolo is prayed for and cared for in the name of Jesus.  Please pray for lives to continue to be transformed!  About 3000-4000 patients are, on average, coming through the doors of Bongolo each month.

The Bongolo team is celebrating the return of one of the former surgical PAACS residents, Dr. Anatole Nzanzu and his family.  He will be helping the team as a teaching surgical doctor as well as being a boost to the worship team as a talented guitarist and singer.

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement!  The AMB (MAG) Cessna 207 aircraft has a series of flights coming up to support the surgical training program at Bongolo (  Please pray for continued safety.  Soon after, it will be time for the annual inspection.  We'll have more photos to post soon.
