1. Is this going to take any money away from the savings to purchase a new/permanent Kairos House?
No. We are constantly amazed at God’s provision and are reminded of how limited our imaginations are and how boundless He is. In Ephesians 3:20-21, Paul writes, “now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us,to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever!” We remain committed to finding a more suitable and comfortable house for those whom we serve at Kairos House and will continue to pray, search while raising and saving funds for this purpose. We are blessed that this individual stepped forward, not just with a shared passion and idea for a permanent clinic, but took a giant leap of faith in agreeing to provide the necessary start up funds and has committed to providing the needed funds while logistics are figured out and the operation becomes self-sustaining.
2. Will someone live full time at the clinic? How will it be staffed?
While logistics are still being worked out, the idea remains that we will have a clinic manager who will oversee the site and will also have a rotation of doctors who will provide medical care. While our visiting doctors from the states will have use of it, we are hopeful that some local physicians will catch our vision and offer their services as well.
3. Where is the clinic located?
The clinic is located in the town of Camotan, right at the base of the mountain our groups are accustomed to traveling up to go into the villages. What we did not anticipate was how this clinic would be a blessing for those at the base of the mountain, as much as it will be for those up IN the villages. We quickly learned that there is no clinic or healthcare facility in the town and that locals need to travel 30 to 45 minutes to get basic medical attention. God is good!
4. What is the purpose of the clinic?
The purpose of this clinic will match the the mission of the ministry: to show the love of Jesus by being His hands and feet while giving Him all the glory; to serve those with great need and to provide that service as if serving God Himself; to provide and maintain the dignity of those whom we are serving understanding the individual is more than an object of our charity – they themselves are equal participants in the solutions of their problems; and, to work together with the Church in proclaiming the gospel. It’s purpose is to meet a basic and immediate need for health care, while being a source of light, hope and healing for the community at large.
