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.

Another thrilling adventure from Paul White based in Mvumi hospital, Tanzania.

Infections and disease are defeated with medicine and good hygiene but Nje - the Witchdoctor cooks the stings of Scorpions in his evil potions.

Nje's life depends on it.
