Sunday school prize-giving suggestion for 10-12 year olds
Christian Focus are now reissuing this popular series of books which were prepared as stories for broadcasting in the 1940s when Dr White and his wife returned to Australia from their missionary work in Tanzania. His experiences in the mission hospital, equipped with only early, basic equipment, are woven into the adventures which provide an insight into rural African life still influenced by witchcraft. Dr White's medical skills are paralleled by his skill in introducing his patients to a Saviour who is able to forgive their sin.
Christian Focus wisely give a brief historic update of the work and point out that the mission hospital is now staffed largely by African doctors.
There is a stranger in the hospital compound - his pockets brimming with money; his clothes brighter than the sunset... and Maradadi is as full of trouble as a scorpion. Will the staff be deceived by his charm and his smooth words of fame and fortune? As the Jungle Doctor fights an epidemic, that is sweeping the East African countryside like a whirlwind, he finds he must also fight the destructive influence of this evil intruder. Another thrilling adventure from Paul White based in Mvumi Hospital, Tanzania.
