We held our first medical outreach on Sunday April 5, 2009. It was a wonderful time together. Dr. Todd Ghormley of Conway organized the medical staff. There was one doctor, four nurses, six faithful prayer warriors who prayed with everyone that came by. We also had six face painters, one hairdresser, a barber, tons of college youth playing games and working activities with all who came through. I am blessed to be apart of such a wonderful ministry. We are seeing men and women be served with the two handed approach. The GOSPEL of Jesus Christ in one and physical helps in the other!
I am going to list a few things that took place that you may Glorify our Father in Heaven.
A lady of Mormon faith has a son in a wheel chair. They moved from one side of the trailer park to the other. However they were unable to move the ramp from their old trailer to the new one. About five of people serving with the medical outreach got together and moved the ramp to her new trailer. We were witnesses for Jesus Christ the true and living God for this woman. I later saw her and she remembered the act of kindness that was shown to her by this Christian ministry.
A man who has been a faith member had an abscess on his stomach. He was able to be checked out and taken later to the doctor's office and the abscess was removed! He is doing very well!
An older lady (55), who is often bruised from falling. Received medical treatment, face painting, and somehow my daughters gave her my absolute favorite pen and a journal. (that was not a part of the outreach) As she was walking away she (the older lady) was thrilled about how she was treated and the pen and journal she got. As she showed me the stuff the girls gave her I could only smile because she had more joy from those items then I ever would.
Many more things took place but those we some of the highlights! Click here the title to view the pictures from the outreach.
