An excerpt from Shirley Jamieson's book - Ripple Effect
Continuing his journey, Archie arrived in in Almora for Easter week at the end of March and visited The Leprosy Mission Hospital. He hadn’t been to Almora for 50 years. Back then he trekked up to the mountain village. Now in 1964 the hospital was on a bus route.
He met two Indian doctors who led teams visiting outpatients at clinics wherever their jeep could get to. Treatment for leprosy had progressed in an incredible way in 50 years and research was on-going.
After the London Missionary Society had pulled out of North India, the American Methodist Episcopal Mission had taken over the work in Almora in 1925. But nearly 40 years later, Indian Christians were caring for their own people.
During Easter, Archie preached to a congregation of 400 at the Budden Memorial Church, built in remembrance of John Budden, the first missionary there in 1850. Archie’s heart lifted, grateful God had used the LMS to bless the Indian people and that he’d been part of it.
