Pastor Placido "Toto" Dalman is a fellow servant in the Lord Jesus in Puerto Galera. He shares the Gospel and disciples new believers in a growing Baptist church that receives support from other denominations, such as a Korean Presbytarian church. Such is a testimony to how churches and Christian organizations can work together for the advancement of God's Kingdom. Yesterday, I received an urgent call from Pastor Toto. He was in severe pain. He was recently diagnosed with a kidney problem. He asked if I knew any medical specialist who can help him. Though I have not seen him, nor have i seen the results of his laboratory examinations, It sounded as though he had nephrolithiasis or kidney calculi (“stones”), and could possibly need surgery.
I called a friend of mine, Dr. Eliseo Garcia, Jr., a Christian surgeon and the medical director of Word Of Hope General Hospital, a hospital which provides special discounts for Filipino Pastors, and he agreed to schedule Pastor Toto for a consult with a Urologist. Tomorrow, I will meet and accompany Pastor Toto to the hospital.
