Healing people with diseases was an important part of what Jesus did in His earthly ministry. Matthew 9:35–36 allows us to catch a glimpse of Jesus’ heart as He healed every kind of disease and illness. He was moved with compassion when He saw the crowds because they were “harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd.” SIM’s medical ministries provide unique opportunities to minister the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. In difficult areas, God is using medical care to open countless doors for the gospel message. Many churches have been planted as a result of caring for the suffering. Thank you for extending the compassion of Jesus Christ through SIM’s medical missionaries and ministries by prayer.
