Okay, it's NOT an emergency, but there is a great need for a medical clinic again this November in Guatemala. Last year's trip was the first of its kind in Sacjavilla, and it was a huge blessing to people in the community as well as those who participated in the trip.
Make no mistake...this trip is centered around a medical clinic...but the TRUE core of the time is sharing the Gospel! People have to sit and wait to go into the triage area...sit and wait for the assigned doctor...and sit and wait for the pharmacy. Who wants to wait alone...NO ONE! Enter those people who will pour out their lives for the sake of the Gospel. From holding a baby so a mom can hear a clear presentation of the Word to playing a Scripture memory game with kids...taking temperatures of family members, dispensing medicine in the pharmacy, checking vision, showing people how to brush teeth...it's all a vital part of the outreach to the community.
But, this is not done in isolation apart from the church. In fact, New Jerusalen Church (in Guatemala City) planted the mission church in Sacjavilla over three years ago. And, that mission church has started Bible studies not only in their community but now also in the town of De Zet. It is a community of believers reaching out to share the Gospel. And, we get to be a part of that.
November 2-9 of this year will be the official dates of this clinic. And, we are seeking God's plan for the following:
Doctors (preferably 4-5)
EMTs/Physician's Assistants (2-3)
Dental Hygienists (4)
Pharmacy Technicians (2-4)
Physical Therapists (2)
Administrative Team (8-10)
Evangelism Team (6-8)
Children's Ministry Team (12-15)
Construction Team (6)
Community Outreach Team (6)
Can you help? Do you know of someone who can? We are asking you to pray and seek God's great wisdom as to what He would have you do. For more information contact Sheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org!
