North Africa Report

How are some SWMC missionary doctors like Navy Seals?                                              (print PDF Brochure)

 dog-tag-smA Navy Seal is one who performs strategic operations in undisclosed locations in order to advance the cause without receiving praise or recognitionSome of our SWMC doctors serve around the world in undisclosed locations, due to safety, performing their work tirelessly and advancing the cause of Jesus Christ without being noticed, praised, or recognized.

Dr. “T” serves in north Africa. His dog tag is blank because he serves for greater reasons than self glorification.

How far would you go to serve a worthy cause? Would you put your life at risk? How about the life of your family?

Deep within these doctors there is a driving force that is greater than fame and fortune. These doctors show more concern for the physical and spiritual well being of others that they do for self preservation.

 

 

THE SWMC FOUNDATION DESIRES TO HELP AN UNDERCOVER DOCTOR WITH A MATCHING GRANT OF $7500

Dr.”T” is a surgeon who does surgery the old fashioned way.  The technology in his area is far behind US standards. Currently there are no laparoscopic surgeries being performed. Full belly incisions are the only way to correct  infirmities. The SWMC Foundation is in the process of raising monies for laparoscopic and other medical related equipment. In addition, we are providing funds to assist the poor with treatment. The total amount to be raised is 15K - $7500 coming from the matching fund.

THE SOUTHWESTERN MEDICAL CLINIC PHYSICIANS HAVE INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE AND ARE WELL TRAINED.

Many of the SWMC  doctors serve in either short term or long term missionary efforts. They are constantly sharing information across the globe with their partners abroad. Because of this collaboration, they are able to access a wealth of information and look at current medical conditions with a comprehensive viewpoint. Their desire is to give all patents the best care available.

WE’RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE! WE HAVE TO THINK DIFFERENTLY.

Dr. “T” is about to begin a new program, mentoring family practice residents in surgery.  There are currently only a few specialist in the country. This program will bring him and his family in close contact with the young doctors being trained. It is an opportunity to influence young doctors in how they relate to patients.

At this training hospital, Dr. “T” and his wife, who serves as a nurse, have the blessing of also working with the staff and patients.  They have the privilege to be a part of a life changing experience like working on a child with a cleft palate.

Through close relationships this missionary couple desires to build trust and friendships which they pray will last for eternity. Though physical security is a risk at times, these workers are more concerned with the health and eternal security of each individual they encounter.

THE LIGHT THAT SHINES THE FARTHEREST MUST SHINE THE BRIGHTEST AT HOME.

In a recent newsletter, Dr. “T” and his wife shared the following concerns:

“Please lift us up: That we will be effective medically, educationally, and in sharing the entirety of our lives with the people we work with.  We can use guidance on how to live in this environment and how to relate to those around us.  Safety is also an issue at times. Thank you for helping us in all ways in the Captain’s work. We thank Him for you all being on our team. “

This couple represents each one of us who desire to see the Kingdom of God advance on earth.  They need our help! They need our voice! They need our support!

Imagine living in a country where your religious views are seen as a threat and you have to be very careful in how you present the love of Christ. Most of us know little about this type of lifestyle.

We ask you to lift up Dr. “T” and his wife in your regular prayers. We also ask you to consider supporting this effort to advance the Kingdom of God in  strategic areas of the world.
