EKG assists Lugansk ministry

By Dr. Alexander Schevchenko

This month our ministry has been enriched by an EKG machine. It`s a very important event in ministry life.

In this month we traveled to Gorodishe town. It was our first visit there. It`s a not large town and lies a 80 km away from Lugansk.

There are not any physicians in town. Only two times a week a family doctor visits the town. So our visit was very important.

Many patients are old people, and the most of them very much need EKG examination. So our volunteer Michail did it successfully.

After that, I consulted people and prescribed medicine depending of results of examination. Our volunteer, Anna, continued blood glucose measurements.

Most people who visited us on our medical ministry are not from churches. We proposed pray for healing for them and people didn't mind.

The members of church where we provided the services communicated with the unbelievers and shared Gospel to them. It was a wonderful day.
