Tuesday’s medical & dental clinic was much more successful than I ever imagined. It was estimated that 500 people were seen. Poor people who can’t afford get help were helped. Our doctors, dentist, nurses and everyone else, were amazing. Several ladies did a VBS, puppet show & bible lessons with those waiting in line. We also handed out lots clothes and played soccer with a lot of kids.
This was the first time I’ve tried to some-what organize a medical clinic. We came with suitcases and suitcases full of medications. I thought we would have more than enough to do two medical clinics. But Tuesday we saw so many people that we gave away almost every medication we had. As great as that was, it put a dark cloud over today, because today we were to go up into a little village (even poorer than the first) and do another medical & dental clinic… but we had no more meds.
Yesterday my doctors told me, “We’ve GOT to do the second clinic, so buy the meds here in Honduras, and we’ll figure out a way to pay for them later.” So yesterday we went shopping, spent a thousand dollars we didn’t have budgeted, just so we could do another medical clinic today. I love their faith and I love the fact that needy people will be blessed today because of them.
(I’ll tell you more about our activities from yesterday a little later today.)
