From the earliest years of the church, Christians have been involved in health care.
When a terrible plague hit the Roman Empire, it was the Christians who took care of the sick and dying. They did this despite the risks to their own health and the persecution they faced under the Romans.
Today, God is still calling us to show his compassion and love by caring for the sick. The church can play a special role in offering spiritual and psychological support as well as practical health care. It is also an excellent platform for spreading accurate messages about how to stay healthy.
