Perched on the edge of the Great Rift Valley in Kijabe, northwest of Nairobi, the AIC-CURE International Hospital of Kenya has served as an oasis of hope and healing for disabled children and their families since 1997. The hospital employees an innovative medical missions model that seeks to authentically integrate the highest quality surgical care with an intentional spiritual ministry that represents a Christian worldview. In this way, it serves as an exemplar in expressing Jesus’ 1st-century ministry model in the 21st century.

Each year, thousands of children and their families receive not only the expert medical treatment they desperately need but also have the opportunity to encounter and respond to the message of Jesus in a venue committed to loving and serving all people, regardless of social status, race, or religion.

Our God is Healer benefits the hospital

A portion of the proceeds of every copy of Our God is Healer will go to support care for children with surgically correctible disabling conditions at the AIC-CURE International Hospital of Kenya.

Why this hospital?

My visit to this hospital in 2010 was central to the decision to write Our God is Healer, and I recount a portion of that story in chapter four. Additionally, the hospital’s medical director, Dr. Joseph Theuri did me the honor of contributing the book’s Afterword.
