The Living Church tells of how a missionary doctor saved the life of a famous Arctic explorer (Stefansson).
It was a case of double pneumonia & the explorer had to be brought in 50 miles to the hospital. When he had recovered, he said to the doctor:
"Money cannot repay what you have done for me. You have saved my life. But I should like to make one criticism. You would accomplish more if you did not spend so much time in religious work & in prayer."
Then the doctor replied, "If it had not been for prayer, I should not be here; this hospital would not have been here & you would be lying dead in the snow."
