Peter Lublink, the Executive Director of BethanyKids, shares the mission and vision of BethanyKids, a Christian charity that provides pediatric surgery, rehab services, and spiritual care in 7 countries across Africa. Peter also shares his thoughts on how the healthcare system in Africa compares to that of the USA and Canada (10:50), his journey to doing mission work in the Middle East (24:49), and why there is no differentiation in being a Christian and being a missionary (37:15).
BethanyKids relies heavily on donations for their operations. Just $200 can help pay for the surgery of a child in need of care and has the potential to transform lives across the continent. If you feel compelled to donate, please visit https://bethanykids.org/donate/ and give any amount that you are able. Thank you all so much for tuning in!
Stay cool, stay hydrated, and be like water
