Good morning everyone and God bless you all!  God is moving in power!  I want to share an update with you from Samaritan’s Purse on their relief efforts in the Bahamas.  Last week Franklin Graham’s ministry airlifted an Emergency Field Hospital to the Bahamas and it is already in full operation helping people daily!  God is so good!

Here is an email I received yesterday from Samaritan’s Purse:

“The Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Field Hospital in Freeport, Grand Bahama, opened yesterday following the catastrophic strike of Hurricane Dorian.  Our medical team there has already treated scores of patients and performed lifesaving surgery.

We deployed the field hospital via our DC-8 aircraft late last week, at the request of the the World Health Organization and the Bahamas government.  Our team of relief specialists, including doctors and nurses, worked day and night to set up the 40-bed facility so that patients could be seen as soon as possible.  The regional hospital in Freeport was flooded by the storm, and nearly all of its medical equipment and supplies were damaged.

Up to 100 patients per day can be served at our field hospital.  It is equipped with an intensive care unit, operating room, emergency room, obstetrics ward, and a full pharmacy.

Elsewhere in the Bahamas, we continue distributions of emergency relief items, including household water filters and tarps, to the Abaco Islands and other devastated areas.

Please continue to pray for the thousands of people who have lost so much and for our teams as they serve in Jesus’ Name to bring relief and share the hope of the Gospel.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1″

-Franklin Graham, President

That is incredible, praise God!  Please pray for all the ministry teams that are helping people in the Bahamas!  Please don’t forget that the people of the Bahamas are going to need our help for quite awhile.  God is with them and He is bringing healing and comfort even now.

Thank you Jesus for the ministry of Samaritan’s Purse!  Thank You for the amazing field hospital and for helping so many people with excellent professional medical care!  Please anoint the doctors in the power of the Holy Spirit and bless the work of their hands as they bring healing and hope!  Bless all the ministry teams Lord and deliver them from the evil one!  Lift up the people of the Bahamas Lord and bring great healing and peace!  May you be with them all in strength and power and glorify Your Name through them, amen!

People of the Bahamas, God is with you and He loves you!

Grace and peace to you all!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16

  1. What a wonderfully ran organization Franklin Graham runs and with such a big heart! The help they give to people in desperate situations and almost impossible conditions is miraculous and a blessing by God. God bless them for saving lives and souls! Thank you for posting the update, so encouraging. They are giving the people much hope and professional care. Amazing. Thanks for adding their link, and I share your prayer, Ryan. Amen!

  2. Such a needed thing. I agree the people in the Bahamas are going to need help for a long time. Puerto Rico is still not what it was before Maria. It took months before they had electricity and real food. Prayers are important–and so is practical aid. Supporting ministries like Samartians Purse are critical. I am praying we will all give what we can–even if it’s $5, $10, $25. Prayers go a long way and prayers can stretch that $5 into $50. But all ministry costs money, and right now that’s what these precious people need. Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. There is so much to do in the Bahamas. Closer to home, the Houston area is still recovering from last year’s devastating hurricane. From my church, a group of men will spend a week during October with rebuilding efforts. There work is guided by Samaritan’s Purse as well.

  4. God bless them abundantly! 🙂 It had really broken my heart when I watched the video’s of Bahama’s desolation. I cried out to the Lord in prayer and repented on the island’s behalf. I touched me a lot and also thought me a lot. God is real and He is the just judge. He hates sin a lot. Our brothers & sisters there need us and we will continue to help them for God’s glory in Jesus name! Blessings!
