Why veterinarians as missionaries?
A healthy animal can literally make the difference between life and death for an entire family. In places where a missionary isn’t welcome someone with veterinary skills is invited in to share their expertise. As animals are treated and trust is built veterinarians get the chance to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Check out this video.
