Earlier this year Andi walked out of a patient room shaking. “That was the first time I shared the gospel clearly with someone!,” she exclaimed.
“And you didn’t die!” replied Ryan.
Andi is a nurse that works in the ICU at a local hospital and started serving at the clinic a while back. While the clinic was a natural place for her to serve with her abilities and skillset as a nurse, the evangelism and pastoral side of the patient care were new to her.
Andi quickly picked up on ways to engage patients in spiritual conversations, and after engaging with a woman who claimed to be “half Muslim and half Christian,” Andi had the opportunity to walk the woman explicitly through the gospel and invite her into understanding it.
Since that first time when Andi left the patient room shaking from nerves, the Lord has continued to provide opportunity after opportunity for her to share His truth and love with others. She has since had spiritual conversations with men and women from other religions, individuals hostile to the church, and women in emotionally charged situations requiring a pastoral response. Every time Andi serves, we are excited to see what situation God will bring her next! Her faithfulness to lean in to uncomfortable situations has grown her in immense ways. It has been our privilege to watch God do it through our clinic.
