Clinic Administrator Commissioning


     On Sunday, October 23rd, Amanda Artz was commissioned as the next Clinic Administrator for the Central Africa Medical Mission’s clinics in Malawi, Africa.  The service was held at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brillion, Wisconsin, with Pastors Ross Henzi and Thomas Fricke officiating.  The children of grades 3-8, the Trinity Ringers (bell choir), and the Forever Praise choir also took part in this special service.
     Amanda will begin her service at the Lutheran Mobile Clinic based in Lilongwe, Malawi, the middle of November.  Prior to living in Brillion (WI), Amanda lived in Denton (TX), Las Vegas (NV) and Madison (WI).  She is a very talented musician and also enjoys being an aunt to several nieces and nephews.
As the administrator, Amanda will represent the Lutheran Mobile Clinic to those in Malawi and will be responsible for the daily operations and financial aspects of the clinic.  This includes payroll, taxes, payments, insurance, banking, inventory, maintenance records and schedules, reporting clinic activity to Malawian agencies, ensuring clinic compliance with Malawian rules and regulations, continued development of agricultural plots at the Suzi clinic and various other duties as they arise.  Amanda just finished a course in Quickbooks to help her with these tasks.
     Our current Clinic Administrator, Alison Westphal, will return stateside in January 2017.
      Please continue to pray for Amanda and those working with the Central Africa Medical Missions both in Malawi and Zambia.
