Balm in Gilead was called and established upon 2 Corinthians 1:3-4:

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort: Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them in which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

We are here to be “HIS” hand extended to anyone who is hurting.

Our namesake comes from Jeremiah 8:22:

“Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?”

Balm was the resin of the Storax tree that was used as an ointment for healing wounds. Thus, we have a Healer who comforts every sorrow and eases every pain.
