Andrew Stirrett — doctor, pharmacist, administrator, linguist — was SIM’s first medic in 1910’s northern Nigeria. Medical ministries have provided a unique opportunity to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. God has used medical care to open countless doors for His gospel message. Many churches have been planted in difficult areas as a result of care for the suffering. Today SIM continues to use medicine in significant ways to reach the sick and afflicted who do not know Christ, and to help and train nationals to join us. Medical missionaries work alongside church planting teams in clinics and
mission/church hospitals, as tentmakers in government institutions, and in HIV/AIDS ministries.
