The first such outreach was held in Sierra Leone in early 2012.Badly disfigured amputees, victims of the war that ravaged the country live segregated from the general population in camps. Because of their physical disability they are unable to work to support themselves and live in abject poverty.Two such camps were visited , by the Healing Jesus Compassion outreach team and at each, all of the 30-40 single or double limb amputees received some financial assistance.
The first camp visited was close to Freetown and the team was lead by the First Lady, Lady Rev. Adelaide Heward-Mills. Before the hand outs were given, she shared a message of hope and love from the word of God and prayed for the amputees. The joy was unrestrained and they gave thanks to God for using Evangelist Dag to be a big blessing to them.
The third and final season of Healing Jesus Campaigns was held in Guinea Bissau in 2012 . The Evangelist held campaigns in five towns and villages there.With a population of about 1.6 million, Guinea Bissau is one of the world’s poorest nations.
About 1 million or more of the population live on less than $2 a day and Electrification covers only 12% of the country, the lowest level of the sub-region.Even in the capital city of Bissau, darkness was the rule, not the exception, all the time.
The Evangelist initiated a drive to minister to the physical and material needs of the many poor people we saw. To this end, large quantities of soap, buckets, cups and plates( given to children) and lamps with batteries were purchased and distributed, after the medical outreaches, to the people.
325 bars of soap, 90 buckets, 286 lamps and 288 cups with plates were handed out., to a total of 989 people.
430 bars of soap, 150 buckets, 346 cups with plates and 340 lamps were given out to a total of 1266 people.
