His House of Hope is a Christian hospital, clinic, and health education center located at the Harvesters compound near Yei, South Sudan. Its mission is “to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through a ministry of health care to women and children of South Sudan.”
Medically, the aim is to improve the health and lives of women and children and to decrease paediatric and maternal mortality. This will be achieved by providing antenatal care; increasing the number of attended births (either in the field or in hospital); providing a safe birthing facility (with the capacity for instrumental and operative deliveries); providing paediatric outpatient, inpatient and rehabilitation services; training African birth attendants, nurses, clinical officers, and other staff; and facilitating health education programs at His House of Hope and in the community. An overview of the mission of His House of Hope is available here.
The more comprehensive mission of His House of Hope is inspired by the earthly life of Jesus of Nazareth. On a daily basis, he was surrounded by the sick and suffering – “he welcomed them, spoke to them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who needed healing” (Luke 9:11). His hope for them (and for all people) was that they experience true and lasting healing by making peace with their Creator and entering the Kingdom of God. Healing of their physical illness was evidence of his love for them, and of his power to do what he promised to do! As they began to follow Jesus, and learned to walk in His Ways, they began to experience the peace and joy of that life that God intended for us all.
This is our hope for the patients and community that His House of Hope serves – that they will come to know Jesus Christ personally and experience the blessing of life in the Kingdom of God.close
