Transforming Lives for Eternity
People travel miles by foot, over mountains, across rivers and by PMV (public motor vehicles) to arrive at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital.  Why?  Because the hospital is open, doctors are present, the storeroom has supplies and diseases are treated and people are healed both physically and spiritually

    This happens because of YOU!!!

Your giving has helped Kudjip Hospital maintain a supply of much needed medicine.  Through your giving we are able to obtain and ship medicines and supplies at a greatly reduced rate.  This has allowed the missionary doctors to share the love of Jesus by caring for the patients medical conditions opening the door to share the Gospel of Jesus transforming lives for eternity.  
Please Pray
Baru is the hospital administrator. 
Baru has a bone tumor.  Diagnosis is
uncertain.  Biopsy reports have been sent to the USA.
Would you pray for Baru and his family,
Pray for healing, guidance,
direction, and comfort.



 

New Need for the Hospital!
 
Cervical Cancer is rampant in PNG.  Most come to the hospital when they are in late stage cancer. Our Doctors have an opportunity to show not only the love of God but also the love of their American brothers and sisters.  We can assist them in this ministry by making Cancer Care Kits to encourage those ladies who are on a very difficult journey.  Because PNG has no land fills, the pads need to be washable and reusable. The kits are actually quite simple to make.  We would be happy to send instructions for the kits which include 2 pairs of underwear, 5 reusable pads, soap and a washcloth as well as a pretty carry home bag. This small showing of kindness can bring a smile to the faces of the ladies receiving them as well as to the missionary Doctors who are filled with compassion for those in their care.  

Email Barb Winter (Dr. Todd's mother) at winterbarbaraj@gmail.com for detailed instructions for this project

Meet the Missionaries
 
Jim and Kathy Radcliffe felt God's calling 
to be missionaries while children as they listened to missionaries speak and read the children's missionary books.  In High School Jim was at NYI summer camp and Kathy at her church teen retreat when they again felt the Lord specifically calling them into missions. Kathy had an interest in medical dietetics and Jim 
wanted to become a doctor and fulfill his calling in that way. Both enrolled at MVNU.. While at MVNU they both participated in summer missions trips to Central America which confirmed God's 
callings. In Medical School at OSU both came to PNG in 1979 which also was a confirming experience. After finishing surgery training they practiced for one year in Kathy's home town of Xenia,Ohio and joined the Nazarene Church there. Appointed to PNG in 1986, they have served there for the past 31 years. 


There have been a number of high points and some low ones as well. Some of the high points have been to see their children participate in missions in PNG 
and other places around the world.  Ben and his wife Katherine are currently serving as post resident fellows in missionary medicine with World Medical Missions. Jim and Kathy have 4 of 8 grand kids with them now! Their daughter-in-law, Katherine, was working part time in the clinic but may need to be at home more full time with the new twin girls the Lord blessed them with. Daughter, Priscilla, is leaving next week to return to USA to get married to Wyatt Mills after having been our MK school teacher for the last year and a half. Other high points are the new hospital, the supplies sent through containers by Nazarene Hospital Foundation, training of national doctors in surgery in the remote and rural medicine program, seeing miracles of healing spiritually and physically at the hospital, seeing the PNG church grow in many ways including becoming self supporting and sending out their own missionaries. We have been blessed with many great volunteers, residents, and medical and PA students who have come to experience medical missions and to consider career calls. The rich times of fellowship with the missionary and national family, along with times of sharing with the teams and volunteers who come have been special. Their kids have had an expanded world view from having grown up in this environment. It has been a good place to have a family identity and be able to experience life together. 

Some of the low moments have been running out of needed supplies and medicines; increased patient loads with not enough medical staff; tribal fighting; government health care that at times has been difficult, loosing patients whom we had hoped to save, as well as those times their families in the USA have gone through difficult transitions and losses without their being there to help. 


 Kathy is currently the orientation team chairperson, assisting new missionaries with language and cultural readiness.
She also helps in the hosting and preparation for visitors. Jim concentrates on the surgical patients care.Training of national doctors and nurses has become a priority. They consider it a privilege to have served the church, the people of PNG and the Lord here over the years. We continue to pray for God to keep us faithful and to show us the next steps in the journey. We want to be resilient for Christ in this chapter of life. Thank you Jim and Kathy for your dedicated service to God and the people of PNG!
