Jody Kennedy International
M*A*S*H Nica Style
March 5, 2011

From 1972 until 1983, M*A*S*H (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) was an iconic and often controversial weekly television sitcom with quite a bit of political commentary, satire and immorality mixed in.  The fact is that my generation was greatly influenced by this show and the many other so-called ground breaking television shows of the 1970's.  Sadly, the underlying themes of counter-culture and immorality were usually  veiled by really funny situations, one-liners and tear-jerking tragedy.  While we laughed and cried with the characters, the underlying messages helped my generation along a path of acceptance of immoral behavior and attitudes as "normal".     


In 1988, Jesus Christ changed my outlook on everything.  I can still laugh at some of those M*A*S*H episodes, but I cringe at the immorality and lost condition that the show represents among my generation. 


The world is in need of a totally new M+A+S+H.  So, Jody Kennedy International will field our own M+A+S+H (Medical Assistance for Spiritual Health) in Masatepe, Nicaragua.  While we will not be doing any surgeries we have no doubt that many heart transplants will take place. 


Won't you pray for us right now?  Will you consider how you can help us during 2011 by going, giving, sending and praying?


Thank you for 10+ years and thanking Him in advance for the next 10.



M+A+S+H in Nicaragua
March 5, 2011

Our M+A+S+H team is making preparations to take some tender care to the people of Masatepe, Nicaragua, April 30 - May 8. 

It's not too late to join the team, but time is running out.  You can join us either as a medical professional (doctor, nurse, etc.) or as an assistant (no medical training is required).

We will debut a method of evangelism that will be different than the methods used by medical teams in the past (as far as we know and have been told).  We pray that this new approach will result in lasting relationships with Jesus Christ and also with our host church, Iglesia Nuevo Horizonte and Pastor Martin Paiz.

Our lead doctor is John Gibson, MD and his wife, Linda (nurse practitioner).  Both have two decades of experience as missionaries on the field.  They are going to show us the ropes of an effective and well-rounded medical clinic.

More importantly, they have a passion for evangelism which will keep our entire team focused on the most important aspect of the mission.

Express your interest in this event by immediately calling us today (817-944-2288), email, or by registering here.



Report: Iglesia Bautista Libertad - Managua
January 30, 2011

The mixed team from Texas and Florida, although small in number found ourselves multiplied by the strength of the Lord as we used the Practically Speaking English programs to reach children, teenagers and adults.   We enlisted several young people from the church to perform as our puppeteers and our longstanding partners, Benjamin, Juan, Samuel and Pastor Denis saw the fruit of our work (in the grace of the Holy Spirit) as 9 teenagers and 24 adults made decisions for Christ.

We have a full schedule of events through July at churches and at the University of Managua in Nicaragua. 

Take a look at our travelogue photo's here
