GHO & ODF in Ukraine
We partner with Global Health Outreach and the local church in a village and provide medical care and support to help grow existing church or plant a new church.
What is GHO: The goal of Global Health Outreach short-term medical, surgical, and dental trips is to come alongside national partners who are making disciples, planting churches, and evangelizing in their particular areas. We seek to use our medical skills to offer hope and compassion to the least, the lost, and the last who often have no access to any health services in their country. Their poverty, social class, or geography may require them to suffer in silence, and often die prematurely from medical conditions that may be treatable.
We had 17 American’s come to Ukraine and serve the people in Horostkiv. It was an incredible time. It is so admirable how God had used 17 American’s to show a small village the love He has for them. An elderly woman was so touched by one member of the team. They asked the elderly women “how did you sleep today?” She said that no one ever asked this of her, she had tears in her eyes.
Today, the local church has a new vision after our team has come and did the medical outreach in Horostkiv. They are focusing on families and teens in the community. God has been speaking to the church leaders for years, but they have not understood until now. We are so thankful that God was able to use the medical team and our team/leaders to help the church and the community, for His Glory!
