On November 29th we had a medical outreach to the village Chkalovskoy. There were about 40 people who came to the event, with 35 people being unbelievers needing medical attention. As with all of our medical outreaches, the even began with a short sermon and an invitation to the church by the local pastor. After the service, people waited to meet with the doctor and get any medications to help their medical condition. While the people were waiting, the team had conversations with each person about Jesus, eternal life, and salvation. Many people had kind words towards us, because of our willingness to offer the medical services for free and to show them Christ’s love, through our acts of kindness (we never charge people for the medical consultations, medication or Christian literature).
One man named Alexander, a 73 yrs old man, was very touched by the medical team of Christian doctors and nurses. It was the first time he had ever entered a Christian church or interacted with sincere Christians. He promised visit the church in the future. Elena, a 63 year old lady, said that she was so touched by the generosity of everyone that she went home and told all of her neighbors about our visit to their village. No once came to salvation that day, but God may have tenderized their hearts and they may visit the church in the future.
