Heart Break

I hope this picture comes through … it’s of people who were heart-broken. These people waited all day in line to see one of our doctors … and time has ran out on them. They were turned away. There were just more people than we could see.

It hurt to look them in the eyes. I didn’t even want to make eye contact with them when they were told to go home without seeing the doctor. I could handle seeing them frustrated, but it broke my heart to see them sad. Many had babies and small children …

Who knows, many of them may have been praying for months that they, or their children, might see a doctor. Yet it didn’t happen.

They are people just like us … but people who don’t have the same access to doctors, meds, and hospitals as us.

Don’t get me wrong, it was still a great day because hundreds of people did get to see the doctor … but my mind are on the ones that didn’t.

Please say a prayer for them.

    that would be heartbreaking! :(

    Awww…

    Now my heart is broken, too.

  3. JDH says:

    I can’t imagine needing to see a doctor and being told I couldn’t. We are so very rich and still sometimes complain about how bad we have it.

    Trey: We once did a mm in Portoviejo, Ecuador…had over 3000 in line one morning…we gave out tickets for 1500…when the crowd saw that we could only see 1500, they rushed our leadership…if we had not had a fence to pull Kent Marcum over, he might have been severely hurt. He will no longer do mm in large cities. Be careful…desperate folks will do desperate things. GOD richly bless your efforts to serve in His name.

    I feel your pain seeing those turned away. However, remember the pleasure of helping those you could. God will bless your efforts in ways even you can’t imagine. Praying that all goes well.

    It makes me sad especially since I went to my pacemaker doctor just yesterday and got a bit fretful because I had to wait a little past my appointment time. How spoiled we are, and how blessed.

  7. Cheryl Ryan says:

    I guess we really take access to medical care for granted don’t we ? I am thankful for all of you guys who are in Honduras this week and I pray that the Lord will bless all of your efforts to serve.

    I am a missionary in Comyagua, Honduras as of present time. I will be back in the states in November and would love to know what medical brigade you went to Honduras with and if they have room in future brigades for a Respiratory Therapist? Thank you

      Melissa … We’ll be doing another medical mission in July of 2012. We’ll start planning that trip in November. If you are interested email me. Thanks
