Ivy League medical missionary

Tonight's speaker for the Ivy League Congress on Faith and Action, Matt Megill, MD, served as a medical missionary in West Africa for two years through Samaritan's Purse.

My notes:

Four medics and 150 local helpers cared for 1000 patients every week.

Medicine is a powerful mirror of the Gospel. Niger has 0.03% Christians, and they need social justice as well as spiritual regeneration.

Christianity is not about living a life of nice-ness, but to be salt and light so people can heal and see.

Pray for Matt and his bride as they prepare to return to Niger.
