God specialises in teaching and training

The Doctor's Life Support for 8 July

… being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion …

Philippians 1: 6

After enjoying a time in rural work I was reluctant to take up the offer of post-graduate study abroad. Doctors assigned to poor communities cannot save money and I would need to find the course fees, a plane ticket and rent for a room – as well as to learn English. But God had his own plan for me and all was provided. All I did was to pray and then complete my studies. With a higher qualification, I was promoted to a newly made post in the city. At first, I didn’t know what to do or how to start my tasks. God told me to walk by faith and gave me godly understanding, so that I began to write many new concepts. These were eventually taken up and funded by the government, to be used throughout the province. ‘Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.’ (Proverbs 16: 3) My main responsibility was to train medical staff over a wide area. Humanly speaking, this was already an impossible task on limited funds, but other duties and research projects also began to come my way. Sometimes I asked God why I must do all these things at once and was often tempted to give up, though I knew in my heart that he always knows in advance what is going to happen. Even on a one-day visit, he helped me to contact the right people. In fact, all was completed just a few months before the conflict broke out which would have made it impossible for me to go on. I know that he was involved in helping me with the whole matter. Praise him!
