From orphan to physician
by Dr. John and Joyce Brinkerhoff
We spent a couple weeks staying at the Agape Children’s Home several years ago, and one of our delights was becoming acquainted with a very quiet, studious young man, Samuel K.
He informed us that he wanted to become a medical missionary. As a medical doctor myself, that pricked my interest. Over the years we have watched Samuel study and work and serve (at his local church), and we communicated with him from time-to-time. We were aware that as a 9 year old, he had lost his parents, and had never heard the gospel; he seemed without a future and a hope, yet he has become a bright star on our African horizon.
Currently, Samuel is in his second semester of year 2 of 4 as a Physician’s Assistant!
We see a young man with definite promise of being a true future leader.
