Good Samaritan Clinic
The clinic, whose roots can be traced back to Norma Gingrich, a Canadian nurse who started to dispense medications from the back porch of the mission house, has grown to become a busy and crucial part of this community. On average 40 patients come daily from El Chal and surrounding communities to find quality medical attention, a sincere diagnosis and maybe more uncommon elsewhere, kind and compassionate care. Often the patients identify spiritual needs in their lives along with their physical ailments. Many times the nurses pray with them during the consult. Every morning the nurses gather together for prayer. It would be hard to guess whether the caring nurses or the Christian literature that is given with every medication purchase in the pharmacy or the Bibles and Christian books sold there, accomplishes the most for the advancement of the Kingdom.
