Nurses as Missionary Evangelists

Ms. 71 ’03 (June 18 ’03)

Christ the great Medical Missionary, is our example- Of Him it is written, that He “went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing [all manner of sickness and disease among the people.” He healed] the sick [and preached the gospel.] In His service, healing and teaching were linked closely together. Today they are not to be separated. LLM 66.5

The nurses in this institution (St. Helena San.) are to be fitted up to go out as medical missionary evangelists, uniting the ministry of the Word with their ministry of physical healing... LLM 66.6

We must let our light shine amid the moral darkness. Many who are now in darkness, as they see a reflection of the light of the world, will realize that they have a hope of salvation. Your light may be small, but remember that it is what God has given you, and that He holds you responsible to let it shine forth. Some one may light his taper from yours, and his light may be the means of leading others out from the darkness. LLM 67.1

All around us are doors open for service. We should become acquainted with our neighbors, and seek to draw them to Christ. As we do this, He will approve and cooperate with us... LLM 67.2

Often the inhabitants of a city where Christ labored wished Him to stay with them and continue to work among them. But He would tell them that He must go to cities that had not heard the truths that He had to present. After He had given the truth to those in one place, He left them to build upon what He had given them, while He went to another place. His methods of labor are to be followed today by those to whom He has left His work. We are to go from place to place, carrying the message. As soon as the truth has been proclaimed in one place, we are to go to warn others. LLM 67.3
