You’re invited to connect with thousands of other people interested in healthcare missions at the Global Missions Health Conference (GMHC) on November 6-8, 2014 in Louisville, KY. It’s a unique opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers, attend seminars, ask questions, and interact with a wide range of exhibiting organizations.
Nurses Christian Fellowship is a partnering sponsor for the conference. GMHC is a gathering where Christian nursing students and nurses can discover God’s call on their lives, especially those seeking opportunities around the world to use their gifts, knowledge and skills. Grace Tazelaar, NCF Mission Director, will be hosting an NCF booth at the conference. Stop by and say hello.
This year GMHC will feature special sessions on the outbreak of Ebola that has ravaged the lives of so many in Western Africa. The devastation of Ebola became even more real as several people in the medical missions community were infected and brought back to the United States for care.
Dr. Kent Brantly was one of them. He works with Samaritan’s Purse and SIM in Liberia. Dr. Brantly’s story caught the attention of a nation and the world -- no one could understand why men and women would serve people with such a dangerous and fatal disease. Their inspiration to serve others was something deep and eternal.
Dr. Kent Brantly and his wife Amber will be sharing their story in a live interview with Dr. David Stevens during one of the plenary sessions at GHMC. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear their story in person.
Several breakout sessions will be offered for those seeking to learn more and become more engaged with Ebola around the world. Please visit MedicalMissions.com for more information on 2014 GMHC Breakout Sessions and the other clinically related Ebola sessions.
Please pray that nurses and nursing students will embrace God’s mission to care for the needs of others around the world.
