Akai Effa 2017
CMD coordinator in Calabar, gave us a Macedonian Call to minister a Medical Missions to Akai Effa Community, Calabar, Cross River State. Medical care is a challenge in this community because of the subsistent living. CMD partnered with two churches within the community to make the Outreach possible. Both churches were instrumental in publicizing the outreach through fliers and banners distributed within the community. We had a large turnout, people came to faith, existing believers were strengthened, and Jesus was glorified.
Elegushi Outreach 2017
In September 2017, CMD had a three-day Mission to a local community called Aboki Estate, at the Elegushi area of Lekki in Lagos State. Despite being in Lagos state, this community is virtually unreached with the gospel. This is because the church present is not adequately equipped to reach members of the community effectively. The community thrives on prostitution, gambling, bars, drug addiction, and petty trading. We conducted a Free Medical Outreach on Day 1 and a Free Skill Acquisition training on Day 2 & Day 3. The souls who came to Faith were handed over to the local church for Follow-up.
Day 1- Medical Outreach
The medical outreach was a one-day event, we had over 90 Volunteers from other partnering Ministries. Everyone that registered had an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a counselor, who shared the gospel with them, as well as a Medical Doctor.
Day 2 & Day 3 – Skill Acquisition
CMD also conducted skill acquisition classes on the 2nd and 3rd day, to provide some basic income earning skills for the residents. The training was free of charge, so as many as wanted to, could attend. People learnt skills like Gele Tying &Makeup, Cake Baking, production of Soap, insecticide, and air freshener, and bead making.
We believe the training will help provide some income for those that attended. The details of the training are listed below.
Babalola Medical Missions 2016
In April 2016, CMD held a Medical Outreach at a settlement called Babalola community within Lekki Phase One, in Lagos State. We partnered with the local Church named Church of God Mission, as well as other Missions-minded bodies, to offer Free Medical services to the underserved people of the community.
