Adventist Community Services
This department of our church provides an opportunity to reach out to the world as ambassadors for Christ and meet physical, mental, and emotional needs. We are told that “many have no faith in God and have lost confidence in man. But they appreciate acts of sympathy and helpfulness. As they see one with no inducement of earthly praise or compensation coming to their homes, ministering to the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, comforting the sad, and tenderly pointing all to Him . . . their hearts are touched. . . . They see that God cares for them, and as HIs Word is opened they are prepared to listen."—Medical Ministry, p. 247.
