On February 4, the Adventist Church in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan, opened a clinic in the city. The activity of the clinic was aimed at popularization of the principles of healthy lifestyle, as well as prevention of diseases of the spine, muscle and skeletal systems.

The local church planned to build this clinic for more than three years. They were met with both financial problems, since in the apartment belonging to the Church needed repairs and redevelopment, and with the difficulties associated with getting the right permits and documentation.

It was also necessary to organize a team of people, nurses and doctors,  trained and able to serve and work in the clinic.

Today, the clinic is fully prepared to receive people. In it you can get a massage course, work out on Evminov's simulator. Everyone who comes can learn the body mass index, their biological age, height, weight, and blood pressure. To get acquainted with such programs as how to get a healthy spine, "Walk Easy" (how to properly reduce your weight), "Quit Smoking Forever", "Healthy Nutrition", hydrotherapy, and learn the technique of Scandinavian walking.

The Adventists of Pavlodar thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve the inhabitants of the city.
