President’s Greeting for September 2016

I am always amazed at His faithfulness to the efforts of GMMA.  As I have started to travel again to different student chapters, I am meeting dedicated student leaders serving to help their campuses experience GMMA.  I invite our professional members to pray about serving as valuable mentors to these students.  Many mentors are needed as the nationwide college chapters are increasing.  I met a great mentor while speaking at the Kosta in Toronto, Canada in August. He is a university professor with a Ph.D. in pharmacy who I discipled twenty years ago in Florida! What a joy it was to see him after twenty years serving as a leader in his community.  When I shared about the GMMA student movement, he volunteered to serve as a mentor to the campuses of Toronto, Canada. Who would have known that I would see him in twenty years later in Toronto to serve together again! God knew. The students we are serving today are the future mentors. Let us continue to run the good race of raising up the next generation for His glory. Enjoy reading about so many activities of GMMA for this month, and contact us to join in on the serving opportunities.     In His Service, Peter Chung M.D

Missions

GMMA students and professionals served in Honduras from August 13th-18 , 2016.  God granted amazing fruits that touched the hearts and strengthened their faith. Professionals and students serving together as a one team in Christ is one of the powerful asset of GMMA. See below the slide show of the mission trip. For the August trip, CGN TV staff attended and made a medical missions documentary. It will be shared with many around the world. Click on the link to watch it. The September mission team to Honduras is serving from Sept 11-16, 2016.
