After breakfast, we started our day off with a devotion this morning. Robbie reminded us of Jesus being the all satisfying bread of life while Holly led us in worship.
We then hit the road for our 2.5 hour drive to Mira Flores. We had 5 groups present in the school in the morning and in the afternoon. They presented on nutrition, oral hygiene, hand washing, sun exposure/dehydration, and lice. The school children were screened for lice, in which many cases were discovered and referred to the mobile clinic that we set up today in the church.
While the 5 groups were presenting in the schools we had 3 groups go out into the communities to do house visits. We hiked through the mountainous terrain to go to the houses that were in need. A ticket to see the doctor was given to those that had significant medical needs and a food ticket to each family in need. Hypertension, diabetes, parasites, chronic pain, were amongst some of the health needs seen in one of the groups today. Each family was prayed for by our groups and the gospel was presented in the schools and houses we visited today.
We made it back for a late dinner, prepared the clinic for tomorrow’s patients, and debriefed about our day. It is amazing to hear about how God impacted our team members.
Our students did an incredible job educating, assessing, and loving their patients today.
We look forward to tomorrow and as always we are very thankful for all of your prayers!
