Life-Changing Medical Camps in India Part of Seeker’s Conferences from The Tide® Ministry

The Tide® global radio ministry is reaching out to new believers through its widely attended Seeker’s Conferences this summer throughout India. But the ministry is also touching people on a physical level through Medical Camps that address common illnesses and provide much-needed relief.

A local prayer partner and doctor volunteered his time and resources to help organize various Medical Camps in the same areas as the Seeker’s Conferences. Hundreds have come to receive free medical checkups and basic medicines for ailments such as colds, sore throats, headaches, body aches and stomach issues.

“These individuals expressed such appreciation for the free services offered to them and the concern shown for their health,” said The Tide Executive Director Don Shenk. “Even though many of the symptoms treated were what we call ‘common’ illnesses, these people would have been unable to pay for the necessary drugs and treatment due to their financial situations. Partners of The Tide ministry in India have expressed what a blessing it was to be able to serve people’s physical needs as well as their spiritual needs.”

Shenk added that The Tide ministry team is praising the Lord for the great work being done in India, among the “poor and least of these” as Jesus encouraged us in Matthew 25:40 when He said, “Truly I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

In addition to producing global Gospel radio programming in 23 heart languages around the world, The Tide ministry gives radios to people in remote villages in Africa and Asia so they can listen to the programs. Thousands of generous people across the United States have enabled The Tide radio programs to thrive and expand into even more countries through the “Sponsor a Radio” program that helps further projects like The Tide ministry’s Radios for Nigeria and Radios for India. Details on The Tide “Sponsor a Radio” program can be found at http://thetide.org/radios.
