Dr. Brueck's medical mission

Summer is here and I am off again on a new mission adventure. You'll never guess where I am going.

Siberia.

Before you envision me as "Nanook of the North" - dressed head to toe in winter clothes, boots, insulated underwear and all, let me tell you I have been told the temperatures can reach 120 degrees. Yes, 120 degrees. I guess I will find out soon enough.

I leave Fort Myers on Saturday, June 21, to fly to Moscow and then head north to some remote villages in Siberia.

Many of the people living there have no idea who Jesus Christ is or have ever seen a doctor. I will return Monday, July 14.

The medical mission is AGAPE headed by Dr. Bill Bechnell. I met him 3 years ago and we have been in touch. After much thought and prayer, I'm off again.

Bill is such a humble servant of the Lord. When he returned from general surgery in Kentucky, mission work became his passion and calling.

I will give you all a full report when I return. I hope all of you will pray that we can make a difference in many peoples lives.


If you want to make a donation, please make your check payable to AGAPE. It's tax deductible. You can send it to me at my office. It will be used to buy medicines for our trip.

Thank you in advance for all your prayers and support - be safe and have a spirit-filled summer. God Bless.

(Ed. Note - Dr. Brueck was reluctant to talk about this trip. It was only after my insistence that he consented.)
