Participants give us their feedback on our advanced medical missionary training course.
It was helpful to learn some of the natural treatments for cancer, because it’s a major health concern and people want other options. Learning about the herbs, first aid, and the correct way of eating were also good. I learned some things about eating that I’m going to change. Also, from the talks about the various ways Jesus healed, I learned that healing includes the mind and the soul. So I want to do some things differently with my patients.—Adina, Physical Therapist
I enjoyed the presentations on cancer, diabetes, and hypertension. I also enjoyed the exercise every morning and the hands-on experience making poultices and learning to give fever baths. Being a nurse, I see a lot of sickness treated with medication but not lifestyle changes. I’m also a nursing educator and I will, by the Lord’s grace, give students and patients more information on the eight laws of health.—Usha, Registered Nurse
Even though I’d taken some of the classes before, I learned many new things, especially on herbology and insulin. Insulin resistance causes obesity and heart failure. And the first aid class made me realize that we all need to be certified. You never know when you’ll need to help someone. If you know what to do at the right moment, then you can save lives. Most of Jesus’ ministry was healing, and we need to follow His example.—Ed, General Contractor
I was stunned the most by the talks on pH balance, vegan dieting, and the Ten Commandments from the spiritual and medical viewpoints. The lifestyle has to change. And I really got to see the connection between healing and reaching people for Jesus. I work with about eight people who are experiencing physical or emotional problems. People in pain really don’t want to hear about the Lord or do Bible studies—they want to get well. But when you’re able to help them through their pain and they feel better, then they’re ready to hear about God’s love, what they should be doing to be healthy, and the need for a relationship with Christ.—Brenda, Retired English Teacher
