Dr. Peter Nalos is a cardiologist and evangelist minister in Bakersfield, California. He is—or was—also a serious big game hunter with countless trophies and awards and records to his name. While he has hunted widely in many different countries, he—like so many other men before him—fell in love with Africa, returning over and over again.
In Zimbabwe, on his first African safari, he took with him a bag filled with $13,000 worth of medical supplies. With no idea of what he might encounter, he decided, quite randomly, to fill the bag with antibiotics and pediatric rehydration kits. He landed in the Omay region of the Zambezi Valley in the middle of a cholera outbreak where antibiotics and pediatric rehydration kits were desperately needed. As an evangelist minister, the serendipity was not lost on him.
