BIEM coordinated a Christian medical team who came to conduct medical screening at many of the churches BIEM has helped plant. Many who came for medical treatment were unsaved people who had never been in those churches before. They received treatment, free medicines—and the Gospel, which is the cure for mankind’s greatest need. An optometrist examined eyes and fitted people with new glasses. Eyes lit up and people exclaimed, “Vow” (wow) when they could suddenly read a New Testament placed before them, or when they could make out details of distant objects. So, even though medical treatment will never be BIEM’s #1 priority, like Jesus we had this opportunity to show compassion on physical needs while also giving spiritual truth. The pastors were so thankful for this complement to their local church outreach in their communities.
