Last weekend Africa/ Europe women met together with AICC Angola international christian church women for splendid training/ workshop featuring Action Natural Medicine ,ANAMED, led by Marianne Holzman, a missionary in Bie province.
She opened the session with well-known story of the Good Samaritan who helped the robbery victim who had been left by the side of the road to die.
While others passed him by, the Good Samaritan administered first aid by cleasing his wounds with wine and then oil as a disinfectant. Grapes and oil-producing olives were readily available in Isreal.
