Our Photos and Reports from Today
One of the most important parts of our mission trip is the MEDICAL OUTREACH. We have 3 medical Missions in 3 different locations. By the time we finish this part of the mission, over 300 patients will have been seen by more than 40 local doctors and nurses free of charge. Photos below show nurses and doctors helping the sick who have come from all over*:

Our Devotional For Tomorrow
TOPIC: Overcoming Compromise
TEXT: DANIEL 1:8 “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the King’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
We live in a world where anyone who is not doing the ‘conventional’ things as being awkward. Daniel and his friends, the four Hebrew young men found themselves in a similar situation as they resolved not to eat a common food assigned to everybody. They chose to be different in order to maintain their relationship with God.
A life of compromise is an unsettled life, a life that is neither hot nor cold, of which the product is to be spilled out of God’s mouth (Rev. 3:15-16). The first step to overcome compromise is to be determined. God saw determination in the heart of Daniel and his friends and made them to sail through, even became ten times better than others who lived their lives anyhow. No matter what you may face as you chose not to compromise, stand strong for God is with you. In the later time of Daniel’s operation in Babylonian affairs, he faced strong opposition, accusation and pressure to compromise his faith in God but he resisted, which led to his victory at the end (Daniel Chapter 6).
Are you under any kind of pressure to compromise your faith? Are you living among people of compromise? Are you passing through tough moments of your life? I encourage you to maintain what you believe. Tough time does not last, but tough people do.
ACTION PRAYER: God of strength and power, we ask for your grace to live above compromise in this world full of sin in Jesus name. Amen.
