A Legacy Remembered: A Century of Medical Missions

by Sophie Montgomery Crane

This is the story of medical missions in the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUS) from 1881 to 1983 on three continents (North America, Asia and Africa). Working under often primitive conditions and dangerous circumstances, brave, spirit-filled medical pioneers established hospitals, clinics, medical schools and public health facilities. Through their efforts, lepers were healed, the blind regained their sight and the sick received proper medical care. More importantly, the dedicated men and women spread the gospel message of hope, trained national medical personnel and uplifted the status of women.
