Gloyd Goes To Africa

Hey guys, it's-a me, Gloyd! I'm sure you're looking at my face and thinking, "Oh, boy--how can I get this beautiful man to Africa?" Well, you're in luck!

All silliness aside, I am raising money to travel with my synagogue, Restoration,  on a missions trip to Southern Africa (specific country still TBD) for Jewish Voice Ministries International.  Any small donation goes a long way to helping the Jewish people of Africa get FREE medical, dental, spiritual help, etc.  This service not only helps those in need, but also boosts the economy of African countries as the ministry hires local doctors and many other positions in assisting and leading the clinic.

Our trip will be July 19th-31st.

Through the generosity of JVMI, I was able to score a scholarship where I only need to pay for airfare (thank you!)--but I still need come up with that amount beforehand. 

Here's a breakdown of the costs:

Airfare - $1,500


Supplies - $500


$2,000 TOTAL

Every little bit counts! Thanks so much for supporting me.

Who is Jewish Voice Ministries International?:

"We exist to transform lives and see all Israel saved.

It is the mission of Jewish Voice Ministries to:

- Proclaim the Gospel
- Grow the Messianic Jewish community
- Engage the Church concerning Israel and the Jewish people

Jewish Voice carries out this mission through a many-faceted ministry that includes humanitarian medical outreaches, large-scale international festivals, congregation planting and leadership training, television, print media, digital channels, and speaking engagements.

Throughout each year, our teams travel to remote locations in Africa where there is a known Jewish population. We make it clear that we’ve come to connect with the Jewish people in the area, but are there to be a blessing to their neighbors and the entire community. By serving the Jewish people and their neighbors, communities in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe, we have also welcomed thousands into God’s kingdom as they have come to faith in Yeshua.

Our first medical clinic was in Gondar, Ethiopia in 1999 where we treated 7,000 patients. Now we treat an average of over 11,000 patients per short-term medical mission trip. Those numbers are growing. Since 1999, we have served over 340,000 patients and have seen more than 50,000 people professed Yeshua as Messiah. Each patient and those with them are invited into our prayer room where they have the opportunity to receive compassionate prayer and hear the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus). This provides a unique opportunity for non-medical professionals to participate in our medical outreaches. In fact, while we need medical professionals, non-medical partners are essential to the success and vision of our outreaches."
