Publishers Description
The life and ministry of Dr. David Thompson could easily be the stuff of which fiction books are made. David's father, an abused and orphaned child, grew up to be a missionary in Southeast Asia. There, David's parents were murdered by Viet Cong rebels. His father-in-law was kidnapped and marched into the jungle, never to be heard from again, and his mother-in-law spent time in the Hanoi Hilton, but was finally released.

In 1977, David and Becki arrived at an isolated jungle post in Bongolo, Gabon, West Africa. Since then, he has performed more than 6,000 operations, at least one-third of which were initially out of his area of expertise and training.

This book is not just about surgery, it's about God's ability to enable, guide, protect and teach His children who find themselves in difficult circumstances. "And it's also about humor", adds David. "So much of what we do is really quite funny when viewed from God's perspective" (and the reader's too).

More About M.D. David C. Thompson

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! DAVID THOMPSON was born in the U.S. but grew up in Cambodia where his parents worked for 16 years. When he was 14 he and his father tried unsuccessfully to save a Cambodian man who was seriously injured when a truck and a bus collided. God used the incident to plant in David's young heart a desire to become a doctor and help people who had limited access to healthcare. David graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 1973 with a M.D. degree and eventually completed five years of residency in general surgery in southern California. In 1977 he and his wife Rebecca moved to Gabon, Africa and for the next 34 years built a 150-bed full-service hospital to provide medical services to Gabon's least served provinces. In 1966, Dr. Thompson helped establish the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS), an organization that trains African surgeons at Christian hospitals throughout the continent. Since 2014, Dr. Thompson has been working as a volunteer to train Egyptian surgeons at Harpur Memorial Hospital.
