I am an old timer and have enjoyed so much the veterinary profession. Some of the very special blessings of the profession are the great clients, staff, and fellow veterinarians. We have met many great Christian people in the veterinary profession, people who have crossed our paths, touched our lives in a meaningful way – and sadly moved on. Ever sit and wonder where they are? What triggered these thoughts was a visit to our home on the event of the annual meeting of CVMC - a meeting attended by one such individual. You see when I was a young student, starting to make my way in the veterinary world, there was a professor who invited us into his home – he and his lovely wife cooked us a great meal, ministered encouragement to us in a low key way and sent us on our way. Dr. Barnum ministered in his professional way for so many years to so many students and it was a thrill to see him again on that evening!
There are so many more special individuals – people who love Jesus Christ and are involved in the veterinary world. Has it ever occurred to you how great a body of people we could be working together for His kingdom if we stayed attached as a body and pooled our unique abilities for Christ?
I believe that this is the current mission of CVMC - how can we draw back together many of you to minister together – to minister here in Canada – to minister around the world – to help our veterinary college students as they launch their careers – to help one another in business – to offer help to one another’s staff members – we have such unique gifts given to us by our God!
How can we help one another? Any ideas? Leave us a comment and lets hear those thoughts and move forward helping one another to use our gifts for His kingdom. We can start by continuing in prayer for one another.
