Testimonials: Pat

I originally heard about Medical Centers of West Africa through World Medical Mission, specifically Samaritan’s Purse. After many prayers, answered prayers and the direction from World Medical Mission, I decided to travel to Meskine and serve the people there. I left in January 2012 and was there for one month working as a physician in the hospital and the outpatient clinic.


My experience in Meskine was more than I could have wanted or imagined. The field workers were kind, caring and lovely people. They were amazingly interested in my opinions and ideas even though I had only been there a short time. They were humble and willing to learn from others. It was refreshing and I was humbled to be among these people with such a servant’s heart. The hospital was excellent and its employees were dedicated and worked very hard.

God taught me a lot about patience and allowing Him to do His work through His people. I learned that Christians have the same need for community all over the world. I would definitely encourage others to serve in Meskine. The field workers helped make it a wonderful experience. I certainly would not hesitate to go back to serve in the future.
