OVERSEAS MISSION LINKS

Ann Moore
Ann has been working at Kisiizi hospital since 1996 with Church Mission Society (CMS).
Kisiizi is a Church of Uganda hospital situated in the beautiful hills of south west Uganda.
She works as a children’s nurse, mainly on the special care baby unit, but also on a
children’s ward.

Officially the special care baby unit has 10 cots but they often have as many as 16
babies. Many of these are small due to prematurity, some as small as 1kg. Other
problems are frequent, some caused by delays due to the long distances mothers
have to travel to the hospital.

The children’s ward is also usually very busy, again with more children than beds.
Pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and malnutrition are common. Many arrive desperately sick.

The hospital has dedicated staff in all areas to care for sick children and adults. There is also a nurse and midwifery training school. Many of the students will end up working in the community and hopefully will be able to improve community care and ensure that very sick patients are referred early. Being a Church hospital gives opportunity to talk freely to the patients about the Lord Jesus. The staff acknowledge their dependence on God in all matters and aim to bring to the patients “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10).

Alan and Lorna Sears
Lorna and Alan are serving with OMF, a long-established Christian mission agency, in Chiang Mai,
Thailand, where they have administration roles supporting colleagues across south-east Asia.
They have served there since August 2010.

Lorna is the team leader of the personnel and support services team. This work covers care and
support of our members over a wide area, some working in remote locations while others are in big
cities. The support team functions are candidature and personnel, member care and development,
child education support and finance. Lorna attends many meetings both in person and through
conference calls.

Alan's primary role is in support of colleagues who are engaged in Missional Businesses. This is a
role that combines encouragement and networking, with advice and administration. He is also part
of the finance team. Donations from our worldwide supporters are channelled through the finance
system to provide support allowances to our members serving in 'field' locations.

Lorna is also engaged with the seniors group at their (Thai) local church, seeking to befriend and
encourage others. Sometimes this is a big challenge in the Thai language! They both seek to
encourage the members of the mission committee of the church. A number of members of the
fellowship are serving with OMF and other agencies.

The OMF website is www.omf.org
