Greece (MNN) — Ministry continues to grow in the wake of expansion at AMG International's St. Luke's Hospital in Thessaloniki, Greece.
The 20-million dollar "Zodhiates" wing opened this fall, doubling the size of the hospital. The facility has a reputation for being one of the best healthcare centers in Eastern Europe, which has brought about a great need for the expansion. Final construction will be completed in early 2008 with the addition of the second new wing.
The new wing was appropriately dedicated to Dr. Spiros Zodhiates, the man who originally dared to pursue this vision along with Dr. Demosthenes Katsarkas, who continues to be the director of St. Luke's.
During the past 32 years, more than 350,000 patients and other visitors have been touched with the love of Christ and have had the opportunity to hear the message of the Gospel. More people hear the Gospel there in a year than visit all evangelical churches in Greece combined.
In addition, in the midst of this expansion, the hospital has continued to financially support other outreaches in Greece, radio broadcasts in Cyprus, and many other activities.
Please continue to pray for the needs of the expansion and that many people will come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior through the ministry at St. Luke's.
