8 of us were involved in this ministry while the rest of the team went on to a mountain village in Galeana to make some repairs on a small BM chapel there.
The 8 of us were: Jackie Bishop, RN, Bradley Bishop, Kristin Foster, Arlette Makcen, Alicia McIntyre, Chris Lambeth, Jordan and I. Lots of people were treated that day and great contacts were made as the village people came to the church for medical checkups and assistance. The sanctuary and SS rooms were transformed into a clinic and we had the assistance of Pastor Alejandro and his church people with crowd control, set up, etc.

Me, checking blood sugar levels. Jordan's not in the picture, but he was my right hand man all day, keeping me stocked with lancets, alcohol swabs, test strips, gloves. Thanks, Jordan!

Pastor Alejandro wanted to thank everyone for their hard work and ministry that day. Everyone gathered on the church porch and Marc translated into Spanish Pastor Alejandro's heartfelt words of gratitude. When he finished, Bro. Ed Durham prayed a prayer of blessing over our day's efforts, the pastor and church, and the community of San Rafael. It was a very special time.
We are so grateful to each of you who donated medical supplies, medicine, and money to this Medical Clinic. God helped us minister in San Rafael and He used you to help make it possible. Thanks SO much to Jackie, our RN, for her hours of work behind the scenes, organizing, gathering supplies and equipment and for working harder than anybody on Saturday. We love you, Jackie - may God reward you for your efforts here in Mexico.
Thanks also to Bro. Ed Durham, state side Team Coordinator, for his help in gathering medical supplies.
The supplies and medical packets left over will be stored here in Mexico for our next Clinic effort, hopefully in just a few months. The packets each person received contained vitamins, bandaids, Tylenol, a toothbrush, toothpaste and a Gospel tract in Spanish.
Thank you again to everyone!
