There are so many heartbreaking stories.  A 2 year old boy was badly burned, when the mosquito net that he was sleeping under caught on fire from a candle.  He did not receive medical treatment, and is terrible scarred.

   We were able to open a clinic in November, 2009.  They have been very busy delivering babies, sewing up cuts, treating malaria, treating many stomach problems, and other illnesses.  The MMS is very effective in treating malaria.  The workers say that people will walk miles to come to the clinic and be treated with the MMS, because it is more effective than conventional methods.  There are requests for 2 more clinics, and we are looking at land and making plans to build another clinic in the future.

   "If we would elevate the moral standard of any country where we may be called to go, we must begin by correcting the physical habits of the people."   {HL 272.2}  "The medical missionary can do a great amount of good by educating the people as to how to live."  {HL 272.4}  The workers in the clinic are also teaching the people in regard to cleanliness, and eating healthfully.

Evans is in charge of our clinics.  He was caught in the midst of a tribal dispute on the way home from Ibencho clinic one night.  Unfortunately, he was attacked by a man with a machete, and lost his left arm above the elbow due to his injuries.  Leona - a nurse anesthetist, volunteered in Kenya for 3 months this year.  She made arrangements for him to receive a prosthetic arm through a clinic in Alabama.  This is the headlines in the Gadston Times, Alabama newspaper. 

   "Medical missionary work is the right hand of the gospel. It is necessary to the advancement of the cause of God. As through it men and women are led to see the importance of right habits of living, the saving power of the truth will be made known. Every city is to be entered by workers trained to do medical missionary work. As the right hand of the third angel's message, God's methods of treating disease will open doors for the entrance of present truth."Testimonies, vol. 7, p. 59. (1902)  {Ev 515.4}

Evans, Dennis  - a pharmacist, and Edwin - a nurse, are pulling a tooth on this man.
