Episodes from the Life of a Medical Missionary
                           Dr Allan Bapty (1929-2021)

Many of the medical anecdotes in this book give a vivid insight into the lives, backgrounds, trials and
tribulations still experienced by people from different parts of the world. It is a stark reminder to those of us complaining about the NHS.
Most importantly the anecdotes demonstrate how God uses people of faith to reveal his love, compassion,
skill and patience through human channels. This is a book you will not want to put down.

Allan Bapty was born in India in 1927 and was educated in India and later in England. He became a member
of the Church Missionary Society and trained for work in the field of Leprosy. After ten years in Africa, he
returned to England suffering from the initial stages of Leprosy himself.
He remained in England and worked in the NHS until retirement taking extended breaks to work in the
Ethiopian Refugee Camps at El Gedaref in 1985. In 1987 he was invited to go to Nepal to work in a
Leprosy Hospital near Janakpur.

He lives in Devon
