The Missions Board has four people who have signed up to participate in the short-term missions trip to the Karanda Hospital campus in Zimbabwe, a country in southern Africa.

zimbabwe_africaTheir trip was April 6-26, 2016.  We plan to be on campus for two weeks and allow about 2 days travel time on each end, so a total trip duration of approximately 18 days.

Fulton Church supports Judy Parker and Jon and Kathy Christiansen who serve as missionaries on staff at the hospital.

We had a chance to visit with Jon and Kathy Christiansen on March 22, 2015.   Here is the talk we were blessed with, to hear about life and serving in Zimbabwe.


Possible service opportunities were:

  • repairing and repainting staff housing
  • working with their Awana program
  • interacting with patients and staff in the hospital wards
  • gardening

Qualifications were:

  • flexibility
  • sensitivity and a willingness to talk about the Lord

We need someone to come along to provide cooking (with help) and menu planning as well.

If you can’t go and want to help:

  • Please pray for those who will be going
  • Send some funds over ahead of time to help with the cost of the materials needed for the work we’ll be doing-so if you feel so led, contributing toward that fund would be appreciated.
