The first first was that we had a cardiologist volunteer with us today!! Dr. Lance Lamotte gave up his Saturday to spend seeing these precious people in D'ville. One patient has been with us for over 4 years and today he was able to have his pacemaker checked. Praise God! Dr. Lamotte was so wonderful with everyone. We would like to thank his wife and children for sharing him for a few hours with us.
The second first is that we had a patient actually teach a scripturally based diabetes class. Mr. Rob Marks has diabetes and is also a minister. God spoke to him a few months ago about how he was not doing what he needs to do with his diet and exercise. He spoke to several of our diabetics about scripture and how it relates to our habits and eating patterns. How awesome that our patients are reaching out to other patients in a way that we can't.
It is truly the body of Christ each doing their part to reach out to others. In Acts 3:6 Peter states: “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you." We think we need all sorts of things before we can help people, but all God wants is for us to give what we have. He will do the rest!
So, most of us don't have silver or gold, but we all have something that we can give to others. Let's not wait for the things we think we need before we step out to help; God is waiting for us to start giving what we already have.
