You have an appointment. In fact, you have more than one. And since these appointments were set by God Himself, that makes them rather important. Yet many Believers pay little or no attention to them at all, much less observe them.

This wasn’t Kris Repp’s first medical outreach with Jewish Voice. The 15-hour flight like the one from New York to Johannesburg was nothing new...neither was the four-hour flight to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, or the bus ride over bumpy, rough roads to Mberengwa. She’d been on van rides like this before, down bumpy dirt roads out into rural parts of Zimbabwe where we made our camp. No running water. Bucket showers. Bucket toilets. As our nursing station director, she was very familiar with how it all worked. She’d seen it all before....or at least that’s what she thought.
On the fifth day of our medical outreach in Mberengwa, Kris wasn’t sure what she was seeing. Off in the distance, a group of five men were approaching our clinic, and they seemed to be carrying something. As they came closer, it became clear. They were each holding part of a pink blanket, carrying a man too sick to even walk.
