By Kristin Breen

There have been many times in my few years since becoming a parent that I’ve learned about God’s love for us from the perspective of a parent.

I’ve looked at my own children and have thought: “Child, you don’t understand this yet, but the things I’m making you do right now will be better for you than the choice you would like to make.”

For instance, when I don’t allow our children to eat candy right before supper, or making them wear a helmet when we go for a bike ride. They may fuss or complain, but we know as parents that these are to protect them because we love them so much.

I can’t help but think that the Father must think that daily. How much we cannot comprehend about how He is protecting us and loving us by His leading us through His Spirit. We have hardships and struggle to see how God could be working through an event in our lives, but we must trust that He is ultimately in control.

The Luke Society’s unique strategy of empowering national doctors and nurses to provide health care while sharing the Gospel message of eternal life continues to yield impressive dividends.
 
A remarkable example of the success of this approach is seen in the Luke Society’s newest African ministry partner, Dr. Bourama Sidibe, who is working in southern Mali. Since joining in 2015, he has hit the ground running.
 
Sidibe began his medical ministry by renting a small home in a strategically located rural village. He constructed an addition to this building and brought in a water supply, converting it to a workable clinic. But with the success of his ministry, he has quickly outgrown this facility and now manages more than 300 clinic visits per month in addition to many more patients treated in community visits.
 
Sidibe has extensive training as an evangelist and church planter along with his medical credentials. This has proved to be a highly effective combination when working in the rural Mali villages which are nearly 100 percent Muslim.
