397. Ludhiana CMC Gives the Gift of Mobility

CampingGurwinder Singh became instantly paralyzed below the waist due to a virus in his spinal cord. It happened during his wedding ceremony. The ceremony was not completed and the bride and her family withdrew. He was left unable to leave his bed in a dark room in the home he and his widowed mother shared. He fell into despair. His saving grace was the love and care shown him at the Ludhiana Christian Medical College.

390. MissionCast – Walking Normally For First Time – Ludhiana Christian Medical College

HaitiImagine hobbling around or being carried for nine years and then having surgery and the very next day starting walking like all your friends. This is the story that Kara Myers relates in this MissionCast. She met a nine year old girl in one of the pediatric wards at the Ludhiana Christian Medical College. Before surgery her deformity caused her to walk on tippy toes on one of her feet. The day after surgery she was standing flat on that foot for the first time in her life as she began her month long physical therapy. Imagine the difference this will make in her life.
Kara Myers from Grace United Methodist Church in Lee’s Summit and Rachel Sapp (shown several times in this MissionCast) from Huffman Memorial United Methodist Church in St. Joseph just returned from India where they learned about the Ludhiana Christian Medical College started by a missionary woman over 100 years ago to train women nurses and doctors. It is now one of the leading medical colleges in India and admits both men and women.
To learn more about inviting Kara or Rachel to share with a group in your church you may contact Rev. Max Marble, Executive Director of the Ludhiana Christian Medical College Board USA. He may be reached at Marblelcmc@gmail.com

318. MissionCast – Southeast Churches Respond

Haiti

Five southeast district congregations (Glen Allen UMC, Broadway UMC, St. Paul UMC, New McKendree UMC and LaCroix UMC) came together to meet a human need in their area. After staying indoors for two months following his second leg being amputated due to a debilitating disease (RSD) the congregations built him a wheel chair ramp for his trailer. Pastor Kim Mitchell called the district office to see what could be done to help. After they put her in touch with Rev. Charles Buck and they put their heads together things began to happen quickly.
