Mission partners and friends,
So many amazing things have happened on our trip so far, it’s hard to condense it into a small blog post and two pictures! We promise to more fully share our trip when we return but we will endeavor to write something short each day. Here’s our first go at it. The videos we have captured really are amazing, but these pictures made us so happy! More to come…
Bevehun Lebembu medical outreach, October 19, 2023
Our first outreach effort as a team was about an hour outside of Bo. As we arrived we closely zig-zagged between the houses until suddenly, the whole village appeared! Tables and tablecloths and benches and chairs came out. Almost immediately, the medical equipment that the Mercy Hospital team brought was set up and things were ready and organized. The crowd was probably 250-300 people.
We served mothers and babies with a medical outreach that included pre-natal check ups and malaria testing. We served over 8 brand new pregnant mothers and 81 babies! We were all engaged with specific jobs from registering families as they walked up, helping write prescriptions from the doctor, administering malaria testing, and filling prescriptions. We were told it was the largest outreach in the village to date, doubling the size of the previous effort. God is good all the time, all the time God is good.
