So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. (Luke 2.16
The surgeon quietly continued, telling about his eventual encounter with a kind mission doctor, who had inspired Chopade to become a doctor himself. Dr. Chopade's journey into medicine demanded years of tremendous toil and study, but with the help of missionaries, he finally graduated from college and medical school.
He told in simple language that he felt he wanted to serve the Lord and His people, and he became a Christian and a surgeon at Miraj. Gazing out on the now silent audience, Dr. Chopade stood immobile for a time. Then, putting his palms together in the traditional Indian greeting, this noted Indian surgeon from the untouchables turned again to the manger. Bowing his head, he murmured, "Thank you, thank you, Lord Jesus.
And that is our prayer. Thank you, thank you, Lord Jesus. In Jesus' name, Amen.
