Here is a brief update from out medical team that is currently serving in El Salvador.
We finally got the medicines out Monday night (after spending 13 hours in the airport and paying 30% tax due to a government error in the paperwork)! So crazy, but God is good because I was able to encourage a woman in The Lord!
The team is doing really well and saw 260 patients today (Monday, July 21, 2014)and had to turn away 100 more patients (we gave them all vitamins)! Treated 180 yesterday. (Tuesday, July 22, 2014)
We had a boy in a wheelchair and his mom come to us and asked for a Bible for her son. She proceeded to ask us to write something in it and we did. She said “You don’t understand. My son has been asking for a Bible for 3 years! Now we can read it every day.” She was really happy!
People here have lots of pain in their muscles, bones and joints due to hard living conditions and poor nutrition. Various ailments: a woman who had splashed bleach in her eye, open wounds, gout, possible appendicitis, diabetes, high blood pressure, and more.
Please continue to be in prayer for this team and they are doing wonderful things for God and He is moving mightily.
