Happy Birthday Jim

Today is Jim Radcliffe's birthday. Andy gathered up the docs and a bunch of the student nurses and we went to D ward to sing our birthday melody to him. Jim is a HUGE part of this hospital and who we are. He is the only surgeon here, and has been for the past 24 yrs. He is on call every night and is often cutting people long after the rest of us are home for the night. We really appreciate him and the service he gives to our pts and to our Lord. One of the things I appreciate the most about Jim, is how he seeks to minister to pt's spiritual needs as well as physical. He always prays with the patients and shares Christ with them. He often preaches at nearby churches and organizes ward evangelism for the missionaries to do. Pray for him and his family as they continue to serve as God has called them. He has 3 kids at home, one who is expecting twins, and 3 here.
