In what was then called Southern and Northern Rhodesia, “Doc” and his wife offered things never seen in this part of the African bush – hands-on medical examinations, a “magic pill” called penicillin, a community hospital with beds and nurses .

. . but more than that . . . an invitation to sit at their table and a humble offer to live life together and learn from each other, regardless of skin color. Battling disease, cultural traditions, political tensions and an elusive foe in their own marriage, the Thumas’ story showcases how God uses imperfect people for His perfect ways.
