In a remote African village lay a sick old man. A doctor from the government hospital said he must to immediately to the near by hospital for treatment. The old man refused, saying he wanted to be sent to the little mission hospital. “Why?” asked the doctor. “The government hospital is closer and has very modern equipment that the mission hospital doesn’t have. Why would you want to go to such an ill-equipped hospital?”

“Because” answered the old man, “The hands there are different. There you are touched with hands that care.”
