KNOXVILLE, Tenn., March 7, 2016The Psalm 139 Project, a ministry of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, presented an ultrasound machine to Wallace Mobile Healthcare, March 6, in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Dan Darling, ERLC Vice President for Communications, presented the machine during the morning service at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church on Merchant Drive.
We are honored to work with Wallace Memorial Healthcare to provide hope for pregnant women in crisis, Darling said. Wallace has such a wonderful legacy, inspired by the great missionary Bill Wallace, of providing gospel hope to the most vulnerable. This ultrasound machine is just one more way the heroes working here everyday can serve the community with a holistic, pro-life ethic.
Wallace Mobile Healthcare, Inc., is a non-profit medical mission organization created to bring quality basic health services to the uninsured and underprivileged in Knox County, Tennessee, and nearby rural Appalachian communities. Wallace Mobile Healthcare is named in memory of Dr. William “Bill” Wallace, a Southern Baptist missionary born in Knoxville in 1908.
The Psalm 139 grant of an ultrasound machine is a blessing to our patients who otherwise might not seek medical care during a pregnancy, said Dr. John Swisher, medical director of Wallace Mobile Healthcare, Inc. This instrument will help us visually share the miracle of a new life with mothers throughout our region. We are very excited to add this new tool to our Women’s Health Program.
