Hello and Welcome

M.E.E.T. Ministry Jamaica Staff

Claudette Medder

Claudette Medder completed her general Nursing training at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica and immediately migrated to Kent, England where a full course in Midwifery was accomplished. She then worked in the USA in General Nursing and acquired a Bachelor of Science degree with concentration in Health Administration and Community Health Care at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY.  She later achieved her MPH ( Master of Public Health) degree at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD with focus in Health Administration and Comprehensive Health Planning.

 

After working in general Nursing, Health Administration, Community Health, Labor and Delivery and Emergency Care for a total of 30 years, she felt the need to acquire knowledge in a Natural approach to health care.  She pursued a Medical Missionary training course at M.E.E.T Ministry in TN, USA where this approach was taught.

As God providentially led she was placed in this work within a month of completing this training.  After working with Life and Light Ministry in FL and Maranatha Medical Ministry in Honduras she returned to M.E.E.T. Ministry and worked there in the capacity of Assistant Health Manager and later Health Manager of the Lifestyle Center.

 

For the past 17 years she has been working in the Natural Health arena and has been privileged to see God's healing powers as His simple methods of care are exercised to boost immune response and help the body restore and maintain health.

 

Again God led her to return to Jamaica to assist with the establishment of a branch of M.E.E.T. Ministry there. The branch was dedicated in March 2013 and she has been directing its operation since.

Althia Smith

Althia's passion for service started when she was about 5 years old.  She stated emphatically that she wanted to be a doctor.  She had a deep desire to care for the sick.  Her educational pursuit led her to the Northern Caribbean University to pursue a BSc in Medical Technology with the intention of using it as a stepping stone to get into medical school.  However, during her tenure she received a partial scholarship to study at the Grambling State University (GSU) in Louisiana.  

At GSU she pursued a BSc in nursing.  After completing her studies at GSU she worked for one year in the field before being introduced to the medical missionary work.  As a result of her passion to help and relieve the sickness and suffering around her, coupled with her love for sharing the gospel, she enrolled in M.E.E.T. Ministry's gospel medical missionary program in Tennessee.

Upon completing the training program she returned to Jamaica and interned in the sanitarium at M.E.E.T. Ministry JA in St. Mary.  She had a rich experience which solidified her conviction that medical missionary is what she needed to do.  She decided to avail herself to assist the ministry whenever her help was needed.

In 2021 while seeking God for a special place to work for Him, she was providentially led to take up a full-time position at M.E.E.T. Ministry JA.  Now she works under the experienced leadership of Sister Claudette Medder.  Together they work to fulfill and prepare a people to stand true to God during the investigative judgement and ultimately to prepare a people for the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
