A group of health care professionals who studied together at Grand Canyon University before going to medical school traveled to western Uganda last year to bring medical care and God’s love to people for whom modern necessities are scarce. Among them were Dr. David Engstrom and his wife, Jamie, a physician’s assistant, who operate Pinnacle Family Medicine in Litchfield Park, Drs. Nicole and Brent Nedella, Courtney Mitchell and Stephanie Bradley, all GCU alumni. (Photos courtesy of the Nedella family)

    Thank God for you all. I am an undergraduate in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. I am only in my 3rd course, but I am inspired by the hearts of the Alumni and the pictures of commencement ceremonies. I think posting this pics is a God given gift to us who have yet to earn a degree with our names. I want to help victims of abuse become victors!!! I have a heart for the prisoners and a call on my life to reach out to God’s people who are in pain and mental fear for their lives. Showing me images of what is to come in the ministry of Grace, is so very encouraging. Thank you all for what you do.

    I am amazed at the way that the Lord works in every life. Last Sunday, a five year old in my Sunday school class asked to pray for the people of Uganda during our prayer time. She talked about the problems the people were facing and we discussed what ways we can help others – as we are called to do as children of God. It is wonderful to hear about people who use the gifts He has given us to share kindness and love throughout the world. I will share the information of these doctors with the children at Sunday school this week. Thank you for sharing these encouraging photos of the work you are doing in God’s name.

    I really appreciate the great works that the group is doing for the underprivileged in western Uganda. Wish that they can go a long way with this endeavor.

    What a wonderful act of God’s unwavering love. This is a beautiful blessing for everyone involved. It is great to see the beauty of loving thy neighbor displayed through the works of GCU affiliates. It is acts like these that make being a part of such an amazing institution even more amazing to be a part of. The photos are inspiring! Keep up the beautiful work!
