Nigeria: 300 patients seen at WATS medical outreach

Jennifer Bennett is WGM missionary and nurse practitioner serving at the West Africa Theological Seminary clinic, located in Lagos. Recently, the clinic and seminary hosted a medical outreach event for the local community. Jennifer posted these photos on her Facebook page, Jeni’s African Mission:

“A huge thank you to all who prayed for and participated in the WATS medical outreach yesterday. We saw around 300 people and found several with dangerously high blood pressures that had no symptoms (260/140 highest). We were able to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, malaria, typhoid, urinary infections, skin conditions, and many others. We are praising God that ten people committed their lives to Christ!!”

The medical outreach event was held on the seminary campus.
