Medical Miracles: Stories from medical professionals serving with Samaritan's Purse

They are nurses like Sharla Boody, who served in Bangladesh, Karen Daniels, who served in Africa, and John Troke, who served in Haiti. They are also physicians like Dr. Doug Notterbrock who served in Iraq.

They risk their own lives to treat men, women, children—and even known ISIS terrorists—because they believe every person is created in the image of God.

They are Samaritan’s Purse medical professionals, who serve around the globe in Jesus’ name, bringing a tender touch, a soft word, a prayer, and skilled hands to people who need medical care. They are beacons of hope in a broken world.

On September 27, 2018, at the Samaritan’s Purse Canada headquarters in Calgary, they shared their stories of “Medical Miracles” with local donors, and with supporters who tuned in online from around the world, in a panel session led by Samaritan’s Purse Mobilization Manager Ian Stokes.

We videotaped part of the session, and offer it to you here:

Please listen to their stories and, if God places it on your heart, make a donation in support of our Medical Care Projects. It will enable Sharla, Karen, John, Doug, and many others to keep offering physical healing and the hope of Christ to victims of war and natural disasters around the globe.

“You’ll never know what that will do in a person’s life,” said Franklin Graham in a short video that launched the panel session. “Years down the road, some of these [people] will remember that when their life fell apart, there were Christians who loved them, and cared for them.”
