Celebration Medical Team arrived on Saturday ready to get to work. Sunday was spent prepping medicines, printing label, and sorting out supplies for each of our 5 days. Sunday night we went over to Matagalpa and worshiped with Primera Baptist Church and Pastor Javier, one of our ministry partners. We had a moving time of worship followed by a challenging message to be committed to serving God where ever he leads. Sunday was Primera’s annual commitment service for the years ministry plan. They currently have three new mission churches they are sponsoring and equipping for ministry.
Monday morning we left at 5:00 am on a 3 hour drive to Maleconsito close to the Honduran border. Arriving around 8:30 am, we immediately set up the clinic and went to work. By days end we had seen 157 patients, filled 500 prescriptions and cleaned 21 sets of teeth.
Spending the night out away from the house is always an adventure. Monday night was much better than out last experience. One of the church leaders opened his home to us for the evening. He and his family were very gracious hosts as they served us through the gift of hospitality.
It rained most of the evening creating an adventurous drive back to clinic site. Once safely back at the church our team saw 205 patients, fill 516 prescriptions and cleaned another 18 set of teeth. We are continually amazed at how God uses us for Kingdom impact. We see more and more that with God anything is possible.
Continue to pray for us as we will be serving the people of La Rica on Wednesday and Thursday.
