25 Apr A Note From Donna – April 2017
As we have said many times, we strive to be Jesus to those around us in an overall effort toward planting self-replicating congregations, with the goal of bringing many into the Kingdom. Everything we do as a mission contributes to that goal. One of the most effective ways we contribute to the establishment of a new congregation (or the growth of an already existing one) is through our medical brigades. We serve approximately 1000 people in three days with general medical consults and necessary medications. We often include dental care, as well as giving eye glasses to those who need them.
The Southside Church of Christ from Fort Worth, Texas blessed us by bringing a group of 28 people to serve one of the villages in which we work. Their trip had the unique challenge of the highway washing out the night before their last clinic day resulting in their inability to get to the village. In spite of that, they were able to serve approximately 700 people. We are very grateful to each of the participants and for the love and care they extended to the people they served.
