Living Water InternationalNursing graduates in the Spring 2011 class of East Carolina University College of Nursing left behind a unique senior class gift – far beyond the school's borders.

In September I was in Uganda for a medical mission week sponsored by Kampala Baptist Church (KBC). We saw God at work in so many ways!

Question

One of our NCF members preparing for a short-term mission trip had this question for Grace Tazelaar, NCF Missions Director. . . .

NCF at GMHCWhat do today's nurses and Old Testament prophets have in common? We explored that question at the 2010 Global Missions Health Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

A person dying from AIDS faces a horrible, painful death. In 2008, 2 million people died from this terrible disease, with 2.7 million people becoming newly infected, adding to the 33.4 million people already living with HIV, according to estimates. This means that the rate of infection is still growing!

Global Missions Health ConferenceNCF is on a mission. We're exhorting nursing students to follow Jesus whole-heartedly in school and in nursing, and we're inviting nurses into God's mission of transformation as they serve him in their profession.

What a summer back in Uganda! For three weeks we introduced the NCF Global Project students to ministry possibilities in Uganda and saw God working in their hearts in deep ways. Afterward I stayed to reconnect with my former teaching colleagues and students at Makerere University. It was a joy to connect many of them with other nurses who desire to begin NCF in Uganda.

Our Global Project team safely returned this weekend from Uganda.
