Dr. Louis has been so helpful to me in preparation for my surgery. Perhaps the most impressive point of my working with her is her balance of knowledge on both traditional medicine and its effects along with natural remedies. Her understanding of disease, its causes, methods of prevention and cure, are exceptional. I highly recommend as I see her work as a fulfillment of Gods counsel in relation to medical missionary work.

[I was benefited by] the delineation of specific steps to take in evaluating and assisting a client (i.e. the C.A.R.E. method) along with instruction and pointers on how to do research regarding a client’s complaints... I would recommend [the Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism course] because it emphasized systematic thoroughness, carefulness and documentation which should be essential when dealing with a human with a health problem. Also, importantly it assisted the student to develop analyzing and reasoning skills while thinking of the client as a whole, integrated being so as to include the mind/emotion, body, spiritual and social. The course emphasized the core reason for the work of the [gospel health evangelist], being the well-being of the soul.

“Learning how to approach [gospel health evangelism] in 2020 in a responsible fashion was invaluable. Identifying scholarly backed rational remedies was invaluable, along with dosages etc… I believe this course lays the important foundation of how to approach working responsibly as a health coach or gospel health evangelist in 2020. You [may] know how to make a poultice, but what are the legal limitations placed on you as a gospel health evangelist? This is why I have recommended this course to my church.”
