Remote. Rugged. These two words perfectly described the village Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor Birkley visited. Two years prior, there had been no roads leading into the village. Nestled among a mountain range, the only way to reach the village had been by foot, traveling along paths that snaked up the mountainside. Now, there was a simple dirt road—but the trek was still difficult. So, why would Pastor Birkley lead a dozen men and women to this particular village, so out of the way and removed from everything?
Bringing Medicine to Them
The answer lay in the boxes of medicine the team carted along. Pastor Birkley is also a licensed medical doctor, and this was the third time he had visited this village—and the third time he and others had held a medical camp here. The first time Pastor Birkley had organized a medical camp in this isolated place, it had taken three days for his team to reach the village. Now it would only take a few hours.
But why still hold a medical camp, considering the new roads? Couldn’t the villagers easily make it to the nearest medical center? According to local pastor Tallan, no, they couldn’t.
