Healthcare is one of the four ministry platforms of SEAPC. It is the extended hands and feet of Jesus to people who need healing. For many of the individuals, it may be the first Christian witness that they have encountered.
The Chinese-American International Cooperation Training for Children with Autism
After 20 years of prayer and hope, the Beijing Autism Association and the Handicapped Association of China approached us to partner in the establishment of national training and protocols for children with autism, their teachers and families. This is our newest medical outreach project, started in October 2014. The ten-year agreement begins with the establishment of the Beijing Center in the first three years. The next 7 years, will be multiplying these centers into every province of China with help and hope for the families of children with autism. Please pray with us for workers for this cooperative effort. Please pray for results in the lives of these children. Please pray for faith to come alive in their families and for continued favor at the highest levels of government.
Touching Hearts in Tibet
Location: Tibet, PRC
This project began in 1996 with the survey and treatment of children with congenital heart disease. Through this project, thousands of children have been screened and over 400 children treated. Although the survey and general treatment phase of this project has been successfully handed over to the People’s Republic of China, SEAPC continues to serve Tibet by treating children whose cases are complex or risky and providing aftercare for previous patients. The Touching Hearts project is reaching the next generation of Tibet with Jesus’ love.
I Love Cambodia
Started in 2012, I Love Cambodia – Medical Care exists to provide free medical care for rural villagers who do not have access to good medical care. The team consists of a doctor, a doctor student who has grown up from within our Raising Kids program, and volunteer nurses and administrators. The team travels to villages and offers a free clinic to the local people. Services offered include physicals, medical diagnosis, dispensing of medicine, referrals, vitamins and prayer. This team is able to develop Christ-based relationships with the people as they perform follow-up care.
How you can pray:
- Pray for the children in Tibet with complex health cases to be found and healed and for the continued health and growth of previous patients.
- Pray for I Love Cambodia – Medical Care to reach the areas where others have been unable to go, for more people to join the team and for its expansion to eventually create permanent medical clinics in various locations.
- Pray for the development and use of the curriculum for The Chinese-American International Cooperation Training for Children with Autism, for the teachers and parents who will be learning this curriculum and for the children who need it.
