Winter 2018

It’s been a blessing to have the opportunity to be Editor of AMEN’s Journal - The Medical Evangelist. When Rebecca and I put together a “newsletter” 10 years ago, we had no idea that this was the beginning of a biannual journal that would highlight the work of AMEN. I did everything possible to avoid writing in college, and would never consider . . . myself a journalist, but in this case it seems really true that God doesn’t call the able but equips the willing. “Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.” - Job 8:7 I have been blessed to serve with Rebecca, a very capable assistant editor, who really does do the work while I get the credit (and occasionally the blame). We also have a supportive and engaged editorial committee that has included Robert Hunsaker, David Otis, and Phil Mills. It is a wonderful thing to see something you’ve had a hand at starting take on a life of its own and continue on to the next generation of leadership. Following this issue, Dr. Phil Mills will take the helm as Editor in Chief of The Medical Evangelist. I am confident he will build on what has been started, yet has his own aspirations and the journal will continue to expand as it enters its second decade. Phil truly has a gift for words and has been a strong supporter of this endeavor since its’ inception. I anticipate that under his direction, The Medical Evangelist will continue to fill the role of motivating physicians and dentists, both young and old, to pursue the highest calling of becoming medical evangelists in these last days. Please pray for Phil, Rebecca, and the team as they continue this work bringing inspiring testimonies and thoughtful articles to the forefront through the AMEN journal. Thank you to all our members and friends for supporting us these past 10 years as we continue to look to the future with eager anticipation.  CONTINUE READING EDITORIAL »
