BUTH@115 Updated: 18 Mar, 2022

March 18, is a blessed day in history. 116 years ago, the Lord began an important project in Ogbomoso land.
Ogbomoso Baptist Hospital Centre (BMC) that has become Bowen University Teaching Hospital (BUTH) was born.
Over the years many lives have been snatched from the cold hands of death, quality of life was made better for the dying. Those whose lives ended did so with dignity. Opportunities were given to people to hear about the good news of Jesus Christ and many have passed from death to life. And the number is growing.
All of us on this platform have been part of the exciting story. That gives us another opportunity to thank God for the privilege of being part of what He has been doing and to rededicate our lives for this noble cause. Pray without ceasing for this ministry to continue to fulfill God's purpose for its establishment. Tell others about what God has done, is doing and can still do in this ministry. Connect the hospital with treasure holders and pray that God will touch their hearts and hands to release the treasures as needed in the hospital.
May Bowen University Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso remain a potent instrument in the hands of God for the expansion of His kingdom on earth. May we all yield more and more of ourselves so He'd work through us.

KERSEY HOME @90 Updated: 02 Dec, 2016

The Home began modestly in 1926 with the arrival of a set of twins at the Baptist Hospital premises. Their mother had died immediately after childbirth. The bereaved husband brought the children with hope that their lives could be saved; only one of them lived with the care provided by able hands of Miss Ruth Kersey. The surviving twin, a girl became the first child of the Home later named for Miss Kersey. Over the years, thousands of motherless children with ther vulnerable kids have been saved from the clutches of death through the services provided at the Home. The home never turned back any child brought to irs doors from inception and its doors were never closed for one single day fro providing warm embrace to the least of the hapless children.

The Home is of age and it's time to celebrate the faithfulness of God and the commitment of all who had supported it to giving life and hope to many children over the years. The Home is a success in many ways not the least of which is its continuously functioning everyday from inception till date. We do not have a full record of where all the children of the Home have been or are at the moment, but a few had returned to claim their positions in the family thanking God for making the Home a suitable safety net for them at their hour of need. One of such is Revd Okumade Adebisi of the GIAEM, who has not only blessed the Home since his return in 2013, but also is the prime mover of the anniversary celebration.
