A few days back, the MC received a call from a concerned pharmacist about a man she had just dropped off at the ER. The patient had gone into a local pharmacy where it was discovered that he needed immediate medical attention. She gave him a ride to the hospital where he was sitting when I met him. When the call came into the center, the urgency sensed from the other end of the phone was apparent. "He said he hasn't eaten for four or five days. Can you please just bring food?"
Usually, these types of calls are answered by Denay, the gatekeeper of the MC. She is the one who you are blessed to speak with first if you come by or call us. It was a chance encounter that I picked up the phone this day, and rather than try to rationalize this man's ability to get something to eat by hospital staff and work within my regular wheelhouse of problems and solutions, I felt a call in my spirit to simply take the food directly over.
The CMC staff love to write and enjoy telling the story of the Ministry Center in our own unique way.
