After some french toast and fruit for breakfast, we loaded the buses and headed to a village outside of San Pedro about 30 minutes away. We set up 8 medical provider stations, triage, pharmacy, and evangelism stations in a local church as the community gathered to watch. We prayed that the Lord would use our preparation, supplies, and hearts to touch those that we would treat today.
This village in particular was special. On the CMMA trip last year, the group met a young 16 year old girl that found out she was pregnant at the clinic. With her mother present, she vowed to terminate the pregnancy. Some of the students and doctors were able to use the doppler to listen to the baby’s heartbeat. After hearing the baby’s heartbeat and praying with the group, the girl vowed to keep the baby.
This afternoon, that same girl came to the clinic but this time with a beautiful baby boy on her hip. She and her mother were proud to show off their newest family member and just came to say hello to the group. It is in moments like these that the Lord shows His sovereignty in all things.
Today we saw over 100 patients in clinic. Please continue to pray for our strength in the heat and that God would go before us to awaken hearts by His Holy Spirit.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever and ever. Amen.”
