Mission Statement: 

We believe that our service earns hearing for the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ, and we are looking forward to the future as we continue to serve Christ by serving the people of West Africa.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Your prayers are greatly needed by not only the patients but the staff at BMC. Pray for both physical and spiritual healing for those at BMC right now. All of the staff, full time missionaries, and volunteers work long hours. Pray that the Lord will give them rest and strength.

Pray for the Mamprusi people and that through the hospitals ministry they will come to know Christ, the Great Physisian.

Pray for safe travel of all our volunteers and good health while they are serving. Pray that they will be helpful to the hospital's ministry and will be changed for the better through their experiences.

Finally, pray that several full time ministry openings will be met and that the Holy Spirit will move individuals to answer God's call.
