On May 5 the medical team from Christ Presbyterian Church in Tulsa arrived for a wild and busy week. We watched as these Doctor’s, nurses and support staff saw hundreds of patients, working tirelessly to provide healing, kind words, medical expertise and the love of Christ. Each day one group would travel to a nearby village while the other group saw patients at the mission center, both groups working through lines of people one after the other. In addition to medical care the gospel was hared with each person and additional ministry work was done with children and women.
Everyone on this team was such a blessing and I wish we could tell all the different ministries and acts of service. Particular highlights were Lacinda’s (Keilbarth) wonderful organizational abilities handling the large amounts of medications; and Mary Jane Friend’s dispensing eye glasses to si many with such great needs. The whole team are real pros and we are more grateful than we can express.
On a personal note, thank you for your prayers for me. Since coming back I have been doing home visitation with Nelson Osorto. I wasn’t quite sure how it would go with the heat and climbing and all, but I was able to go up a couple of long stretches up the mountain and felt pretty good. We’ve had a couple meetings with Mauricio; one included his superior from Memphis, and they are still interested in subcontracting from Landau to us which would be great news! Another reason to pray.
