For the past 25 years, a small medical team have been working at a Christian hospital in Cameroon. In an area that poses significant security risks, this group of Christian medics have been faithfully fulfilling their vision of reaching the Muslim Fulbe people with the gospel.
As well as providing much needed professional medical care, this hospital also aims to provide spiritual care for its patients. They pray daily for their patients, and also offer the chance to know Jesus. Aware of their cultural setting, this has to be done with sensitivity and respect, but many patients have come to know the reality of Jesus through miraculous answers to these prayers.
This book is a window into the lives of those who have been transformed physically through the medical care received and spiritually through hearing the Gospel and meeting Jesus for the first time. Passionate, intriguing and uplifting, the powerful testimonies from these medical missionaries remind us that God still saves people from every tribe and nation today.
