Why The Refuge Clinic?
The obvious answer to the question “Why the Refuge Clinic” is need. You say, “Yes! I know there are those who need medical care and can’t afford it and those who need counseling and don’t get it. But I am not a doctor or a therapist. I don’t push pills. I don’t council.”
Those are needs but not the real need. The real need is people who need for someone to care! You are able to give a little care! Your love is needed.
You may think that a “How can I help” or a “Come back and see us again” is too little. You may think an orderly waiting room or a clean toilet is too little, but it is not. Another real need is that you need to be needed. You need the opportunity to show your Christ to someone else. Come meet needs with us, and have your needs met.
Please read Matthew 25:31-46. When you ask “When did I see you?” It will be a joy to hear “I met you at the Refuge Clinic. Don’t you remember?”
