What COVID-19 is Teaching Us About Healthcare Around the World
By Tamara Fitzgerald and Danielle Ellis
At this time last year, our binational surgical team was removing a cancerous tumor from a four-year-old child in Kampala, Uganda. Seemingly angry that we had threatened its existence, this tumor was oozing blood from every surface. In the U.S., we would have handled this by continuing the operation and giving the child blood products, followed by a stay in the intensive care unit.
In Uganda, the single unit of blood we had reserved for this patient had been given to another and there was no pediatric ICU for recovery. To make matters worse, there was a problem with the ventilator — the oxygen tank was empty and could not be exchanged because the bolt was stripped. At least ten maintenance men flooded into the operating room with pliers and wrenches and saws to try to loosen the bolt. It wouldn’t budge. Read more...

God's Prescription for Your Finances
By David S. Topazian, D.D.S.
What the Bible says about money and material possessions is often disturbing and flies in the face of our culture. But a biblically-based philosophy of wealth and possessions, when put into practice, can bring much happiness, personal satisfaction, and God’s blessing. It is the first step toward financial success, God’s way. Read More...

Promises in the Dark: Working with Those in Need Without Losing Heart
Promises in the Dark by MedSend grant recipient Dr. Eric McLaughlin strengthens the hearts of readers to persevere in God’s calling to walk with those in need. As a missionary doctor in Africa, McLaughlin knows how walking closely with those who suffer and bearing others’ burdens can easily lead to burnout or cynicism—unless we find the path to perseverance that the Lord provides.

This resource explores how to find both calling and hope, living in the tension between a difficult present and God’s promises of renewal, how to cope with despair and futility, the importance of the suffering God for those who suffer, and how the manifestations of God bring life into a dying world.

McLaughlin explores how to endure in such a yet-to-be-redeemed world as ours, which is full of tragedy and heartache, pointing to God’s promises.
