GREENVILLE – Thanks to a generous donation by Family Health more than $100,000 worth of medical equipment will soon be on its way to Honduras.
The equipment is being shipped to the clinic at Iglesia Bautista Betania (Bethany Baptist Church) in Siguatepeque, Honduras.
The project was orchestrated by Dr. Robb Kensinger who used to work for Family Health and is now living in Honduras, along with his wife and son, as missionaries.
Kensinger teaches at MEDA (Ministerios Evangelicos de Las Americans) and has been instrumental in the building of the Betania Clinic. Prior to arriving on the mission field, Dr. Kensinger was an elder at Bible Fellowship Church in Greenville, which is his home church.
Family Health has donated exam tables, exam room cupboards and sinks, waiting room chairs and a host of other supplies.
“The clinic ministry at Betania has been a blessing to the surrounding community and beyond for more than 10 years, and it functions completely on donations. Its primary purpose is to share the compassion of Jesus Christ as a means to communicate the Gospel and the truth of God’s word,” said a spokesperson. “Kensinger and others are presently working to enhance this ministry with a better building and better facilities and equipment, and now the Lord has provided exactly what was needed for the interior exam rooms at just the right time.”
“We are indebted to the many groups from the U.S. who have come to help build this facility or who have donated to help our church hire Honduran workers to assist in the construction,” Kensinger said.
At this time, there is a need to raise approximately $10,000 so that the equipment can be shipped to Honduras. If you would be interested in helping to ship the equipment, you can send a check to Grace Global Ministries, P.O. Box 12, Cedarville, Ohio, 45314.
