Mercy Matters: Heartbreak And Hope In The Philippines
Occupational therapist Cornelia Benson is a veteran of MTW medical trips,
but a recent experience with an 8-year-old Filipino girl both broke her heart
and offered a tangible example of how God works through the church.
How did you meet Angelica?
I served on a team that cared for her after her leg was
amputated. Both she and her mother came to Christ
through the local church after her tumor was discovered
through an MTW medical team..
How does her story illustrate missions at its best?
As she was dying the local pastor and elders came to
pray. We literally encircled her as medical professionals
and pastors. It was such a beautiful picture of the
way we work in missions -- so many are toiling,
watering, and caring.
