The lad was fascinated how God kept sending people to Ida, showing her the need for a woman doctor in India. "Mom, he was persistent wasn't he? Do you think God was happy that she listened finally?"
So I thought I would take a moment to talk abit about Ida Scudder for a moment. A young lady who DIDN'T want to live in India.. a dirty bug-infested hot country. She'd rather live in clean comfortable North America. Yet God called her from that into a life of service as a doctor. :)
Over time she developed many clinics and hospitals and helped many many Indian people with their health issues. She cared for the people of India greatly.
"By 2003, the Vellore Christian Medical Center was the largest Christian hospital in the world, with 2000 beds, and its medical school is one of the premier medical schools in India." (Link)
Ida answered the call of God upon her life, and lives in India were changed. :)
My Lord Katie.
Glory of his Cross.
