Transcript of IHS Global Ministry Report 2014

  • The Power of a Witness

    IHS Global believes in the power of

    testimony (the power of a witness) and

    celebrates people taking even the smallest

    step toward Jesus along their life journeys.

    Who

    Is Going Where?

    Trained Indigenous Healthcare Witnesses

    are reaching out to their patients at the

    bedside and in the clinics around the

    world.

    Indigenous Witness Trainers are training

    other Christian healthcare workers as wit-

    nesses for Jesus in their localities and

    regions.

    Saline Process Partner Organizations are

    working together training witnesses in the

    far reaches of the world.

    Why?

    After Jesus talks with the Samaritan woman

    at the well, she runs into her town and says,

    Come, see Many in the town believed

    because of the womans testimony.

    These healthcare witnesses go where we cannot go!

    I learned that my workplace is my Jerusalem. Referring to Acts 1:8

    East Asia, physician

    To date, over 11,000 Christian healthcare witnesses in over 74 countries are trained to capture

    moments with their patientsall with permission, sensitivity and respect. They are, in essence, saying

    Come, see. They have been trained by our healthcare witness training, the Saline Process.

    Read on to see how IHS Global connects, trains and coordinates the amazing worldwide resource of Christian healthcare workers for the purpose of sharing the love and reality of Jesus.

  • Just a Click Away!

    The Saline Online Community is open for business!

    A healthcare witness in South Africa can now communicate with a witness

    in Siberia. (Yes, we are training witnesses in Siberia!) Trainers can

    communicate with the witnesses they have trained. Global trainers can

    communicate with regional trainers. And they can do it in 81 languages!

    Training materials are available in 21 languages. Video refresher training,

    news, stories and prayer are available to all the 11,000 trained

    healthcare witnesses.

    The Saline Online Community Goes Where We

    Cannot Go!

    Greetings in the Mighty Name of Jesus, As I look back upon this year, I am immediately reminded of

    your prayers, financial gifts and continual interest in the

    work of IHS Global. It is with gratitude that I write.

    We continue to utilize the amazing opportunities of indigenous

    Christian healthcare workers to share the love and reality of

    Jesus with patients around the world. Training continues in

    cooperation with the International Saline Partnership.

    We can invest much work and energy, but it is the movement of God that:

    Raises up indigenous leaders and trainers,

    Envisions healthcare workers and sets a fire beneath them, and

    Keeps a covenant partnership of organizations working together.

    Let me give you an example of God multiplying efforts. Rajan, a physician from

    Sri Lanka (island south of India) came to India for training as a healthcare witness and

    to be equipped as a trainer of healthcare witnesses. Soon after, he had the

    opportunity to meet with ministry colleagues in Pakistan (northwest border of India).

    While there, he trained healthcare workers in four different Christian hospitals.

    Rajan is a member of our partner organization, Healthcare Christian Fellowship

    International.

    The work of IHS Global is expanding through:

    Expansion initiatives in India, Sub-Sahara Africa and the Middle East in 2015,

    Strategic planning by our indigenous leaders for expansion in Russia,

    Expansion into Pakistan, Israel, Malawi, Ivory Coast, Ecuador this past year,

    Plans for Australian and New Zealand leaders to reach throughout Oceania,

    Continuing work in Central and South America, the Caribbean and Europe and

    Several trainings in the U.S.

    As I close, let me remind you of our gratitude. May you know the comfort of the Lord

    and be encouraged by Him in this coming year.

    Healthcare Witness Training

    The Saline Process, our

    healthcare witness training

    equips and mobilizes Christian

    healthcare workers as witnesses

    for Christ. Once trained these

    Christian healthcare workers have a

    lifetime of ministry ahead of them.

    On-the-ground (face-to face)

    training followed throughout the

    years by internet networking

    provides follow-up training,

    resources, community and prayer

    are the keys to ongoing ministry.

    The Saline Process includes

    Training-of-Trainers (TOT) which

    equips trained witnesses to, in

    turn, train other Christian

    colleagues in their region or

    locality. A network of trainers

    global, regional and localis being

    built. The goal? For patients to hear

    about the love and reality of Jesus.

    Gbor Gyri, M.D. Becomes

    Executive Director of Ministry

    IHS Global welcomed Gbor Gyri to

    his new position as Executive

    Director of Ministry in June. God

    first called him to the work of the

    Saline Process in 1999 in Hungary.

    his native country of Hungary for 23

    years - 18 of those years in Family
